Thank you to all of you who supported our t-shirt fundraiser. We raised $281! We pray that the shirts will provide a lot of opportunities to share about orphan care for those who bought them. The shirts should arrive in the next 2 weeks, and I can’t wait to wear mine! Our family of five all bought shirts, so you can expect to see us looking super cool while wearing them at the same time. G’s shirt will be huge, but that’s okay!
Thank you again to all of you who purchased shirts and gave donations. We have a long way to go in our fundraising, and every little bit helps. I am hoping to speak with our adoption agency next week to see if we can verify how much we will really need. Fees vary based on the agency, state, and specific adoption situation, so the money situation is a little complex. After talking with our agency, I will write a blog with more detailed financial information. In the meantime, just know that we are still thousands of dollars away! That seems crazy to me, but I know that the LORD owns the cattle on a thousand hills. He has called us to adopt, and He will provide!
We are planning a new fundraiser for those who live near us (or would like to travel). Ms. Gail is hosting a spaghetti dinner for us at Gail’s Down the Street Cafe! The dinner is Thursday, October 15 at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from myself, Jeremy, and Ms. Gail, or at Gail’s Down the Street Cafe. I am so excited! I think it is going to be a really fun night! Please come out and join us
