2 Corinthians 10:5

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast,because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal. Isaiah 26:3-4

We Need Help!!

Simply put, we need your help.  For those of you who know me, you know this is very difficult for me to do.  At this point we don't have any other choice.  We are weeks away from traveling to Ethiopia for Court, the first of two trips required for the adoption process.  In order to complete the final steps in bringing our daughter home, we need to raise $7,000 in a matter of days.  I know this seems impossible, but God is teaching me that impossible things are possible with Him.  God has asked us to LOVE One More, He will not abandon us as we follow his lead.

Here is what we are asking from you:

  1. First of all please join us in prayer - Pray that God will show up in a mighty way and provide for our needs.  Pray for our 3 kiddos at home, while Mom and Dad travel to visit our newest family member (two of them have only been home for 4.5 months).  Please pray for a blessed time spent with our new daughter and a joyful bonding experience.  May God's will be done.
  2. Give.  We are asking each of you to give $10 and then to pass this on to 25 of your friends, asking the same thing.  Giving is easy, just click the PayPal button on the top right hand side of the blog.  You can pay with your PayPal account or debit/credit card. 
  3. Donate items to take to the Orphanage.  Card games, nail polish, jump ropes, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, puzzles, simple board games, beads, crafts, deflated balls, marbles, and baby wipes.
  4. We need a twin size bed for our daughter.  If you are able please consider donating a twin bed.   

P.S.  Another family recently visited with our daughter and gave her a care package that we sent to her.  They were kind enough to share their visit with us.  "She is so precious!  She cried when she looked through the photo album that you sent her.  I also found out that she and another girl take care of all the other girls' hair in the Transition Home!  Such a sweet and giving girl!"

God places the lonely in families.  Psalm 68:6a
