Today's the Adoption Fund Raiser!



Yeah! 

 We can't wait to see what God has in store...I think about 300 tickets have been sold!  We are expecting probably a hundred people to come to the actual benefit. Last night we began to clean up the hall and set it up for all our friends/guest to come.  We have some awesome raffles that have been donated.  Bob and his wife Joyce~ and his daughters Beth and Rachael are throwing us this big benefit bash tonight, they have fussed and planned now for months.  They are so sweet, they even hired a dj! 

We got another few inches of snow last night, but it looks like it will be a nice day. (thank you for your prayers!)  They are saying maybe rain with a bit of snow for later...keep praying!


benefit: 1. An act of kindness; a favor conferred.

Bless the Lord,O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.
 Psalm 103

fund-raiser:  2. an entertainment or social event to raise funds for a person or cause.


If you can't join us tonight at 6- we will miss you.  But would you still consider making a donation to our adoption fund?  We still are a way off from our final amount of $23,000 and only in a few weeks we need to make the final payment, to bring Princess Sweetness (who is about 11) home.

- how blessed we would be to have you partner with us in this call of God to adopt!


ps- we got 4 new pictures of Princess Sweetness yesterday from our agency (Celebrate Children International).  When we pass court (March 3rd is our Ethiopian Court date)...we can show you her picture on the blog!!  Pray friends, pray!!
