Fundraising Update 3

I think this could be the final tally but you never know. Looks like your generosity has brought in $9,208 so far. Adding this to the matching grant or $4,000 we have reached a total of $13,208. This may be just enough to cover the rest of our adoption expenses if we can get a good deal on plane tickets. If not, then the Lord will provide. We thank God for ALL of you! Thank you for allowing God to work through you to lift this burden for us.

In Kyle's sermon this weekend, he talked about how we should wait for God actively and expectantly. He balanced this with the fact that we should not get ahead of God and do things on our own. I believe that God has been showing Donna and myself that what this looks like. I pray that we all learn to soar like eagles, allowing the wind (Holy Spirit) to carry us. It is much better to soar than to flap your wings vigorously and grow tired. Kyle's Sermon

Thank you Lord for loving us so much that you gave your one and only Son to die for our sins so that we may live eternally with you in heaven. Praise Jesus!
