Overwhelmed by Generosity

01 Nov

We are completely blown away by the number of people wanting to help in any way they can. The way God is using people to bless us is humbling. We want to thank so many of you who have responded with overwhelming support. Many of you have offered words of encouragement and have reassured us that you are praying for us. Thanks to your monetary gifts we are current on our foreign fees and agency fees. Praise the Lord! We made yard sale history a few weeks ago with thousands of items that were donated and many shoppers with generous hearts. We had about 30 people volunteer to help over the course of 3 days with pricing, sorting and taking money. Thank you to our friends for the many ways you helped. We continue to be amazed at the creative ways people are finding to raise money to bring the girls home. A few friends are organizing a Zumbathon on November 4th, one family purchased Adoption T-shirts for us to sell, and a ladies small group is spending hours making beautiful Adoption bracelets to sell. A local photographer has even offered free photo shoots for the first year that the girls are home. One of the students in our youth ministry even gave us all the money he was saving for a car. He is an adopted young man and he said he knew what adoption had meant to him; and was excited to help. We have several loud cheerleaders who have been posting events on Facebook and calling on people to help with events like the yard sale. We want to say a special thanks to Kat Hunter who is our dear friend. Kat has volunteered many hours, putting several of these events together.
I’m not sure why we are so surprised by God’s faithfulness to us. He ALWAYS does what he says he is going to do. Thank You Jesus.
