Update

What a weekend. 

To say we were encouraged is a massive understatement.  We had such a good turnout for our fundraiser!  We sold so much stuff and also served a ton of bar-b-que.  I loved seeing everyone and getting to talk with them about our adoption.  I know that there were a few seeds planted and I pray that God will use my efforts to encourage another family to bring a child home. 

Ten minutes before the service, my friend, Greg, who was leading the service, asked me to say a few words.  I am the communicator in the family, not Wayne.  He just gets all tongue tied.  So I got to speak a little, unplanned.

  ~gulp~ 

At the end of the day, we had raised over $2200!!!!!!! 
Thank you Jesus!!!!!!!!!!!! 

For a little community like this one, that is staggering!  We also have received some donations in the last couple of days.  I will try to figure out how to add those figures into the chip-in total.  I may just have to make a whole new one, I'm not sure.  If you know anything about it, let me know. 

Also, our agency buddy, Kerry got her TA yesterday.  We have the same dates up to this point.  I never thought I would say this, but we need a few more weeks! 
It's only been 2 weeks since Article 5!
  We need a little more time!

I was just thinking about you this morning...wondering how your fundraiser went! YAY!! That is super!! I hope you can somehow travel with Kerry! It will be so much easier to have a group of you going to LY than just one family like we did. :)

Get goin', girl!! Yours may be coming quickly too!!!
