over at http://www.scottfillmer.com/2008/11/01/free-dell-computer-giveaway/
there is a free dell giveaway.
they would like some one who needs one to get it.
so...here is my post
Why we could use one at our house?
we have gone thru 2 refurb'd computers this year. I am running all the congregational stuff off of the laptop, and we homeschool SIX KIDS. it is a bit overloaded.
a new one would mean TYPED sermons while trying to do school. burn sermon CDS and get powerpoint presentations done. And not to mention one kid on one computer doing school while another kid is on another computer just would make my life easier!
the last 2 mons with Sam working for the other church plus his own congregation has been very wearing on the computers. (3 sermons,plus 2 mid week services, several funerals/memorials and a wedding! shew!)
the int'l day of prayer for the persecuted church with all the groups and different powerpoints and different (OLD) software was quite challenging. not using an old OS would have definitely helped.
so could we use a new PC? YES!
and being a small fellowship, Sam still works fulltime to feed us all. We dont have the ability to buy a new one at the moment. so this would really be a blessing.
AND OH, If i win, i can probably get you a tax deduction writeoff :0)
