"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Garage Sale #3 Update

We had a garage sale on February 4 to raise more funds for adoption costs.  We had so much left from the last sale we decided not to collect any more items this time around.  Again, God blessed this sale.  He brought many shoppers-it did not slow down until almost 1:00pm! All of the big box TVs sold (which previously no one seemed interested in) and the clothes were very popular at this sale.  As I have said before, it was so neat to see people get excited over the littlest things.  One woman found a bag of beads and walked up to her husband and said, "Look what I found! I love them!" It's fun to see the reactions! :)

This week we are mailing in our dossier.  We are going to the bank together on Tuesday to get our papers notarized and then, Lord willing, we will be mailing it off!  With that, we must send $500.00 so we were hoping that we would raise that much at the sale.  God is good and faithful.  He has answered our prayers according to His will. 

Garage sale #3 raised $565.00

Thank you for all your support and prayers leading up to this sale.  Please continue to pray for our child and God's blessing to be upon this and that He would direct our steps.

Thank you!
