Many of you know that we have been in process with a matching grant for about the last month. We were to send out letters to friends and family and try to raise $5,000. The grant organization would MATCH every dollar given up to $5,000. We mailed out letters and then the excitment, nervousness, and waiting began. Each week we would receive an update as to how we had done so far. Well August 10 was the last day that donations could be postmarked by. So today we recieved an email regarding how we had done...
DRUM ROLL PLEASE>>>>>> $11,426.31 That means that friends and family donated $6,426.31 toward our adoption.
WOW!!! We were so awed, amazed and humbled by the mighty work God has done these last weeks.
First of all our thanks goes to Jehovah Jireh- our provider. Thanks also goes to each and everyone who prayed for this effort and to those who donated!! We are blessed to be surrounded by so many who love and care for us and who believe in what we are doing.
We now have around half of the finances needed to bring our 2 children home. Don't forget to continue to pray for us. We are trusting that God will provide all of our needs!!!
