Many of you are aware that this past weekend we held a garage sale at our home as a fundraiser for our adoption fees. It was amazing. We had 11 people donate items to our sale. Eleven people who were willing to give their things without asking for any money in return. And so many people came to shop. Our garage was overflowing!
As of today we have raised $2,565! Isn’t that amazing!?!? Just from selling items out of our garage. So many people were generous, and a couple extra dollars adds up fast! Our bill for us to move to the next phase is $7,355 and this money raised is going to help us to pay off the bill. I am seriously speechless. The money will be deposited today. I wish you could see the tears of thanksgiving I have for each one of you. To each person who donated, shopped and prayed, thank you. You have encouraged our family beyond what you can imagine.
The best part about this money you donated? The bill we are paying right now is money that goes to the orphanage we will be adopting from. The orphanages in Haiti rely 100% on donations and payments from adoptive parents. So your money isn’t just going to pay government fees or some other obscure fee. It is going to the orphanage. How awesome is that??
We are overwhelmed by your generosity and the Lord’s provision.
May you be encouraged to bless others today,
