Drum Roll Please...

It's been overwhelming to see God bless our efforts in our fundraiser auction.  By the end, we had 128 auction listings...every item donated specifically to help bring 2 orphaned girls into our family.  One hundred twenty eight items!  That's HUGE!

The blessings didn't end there, however.  Our facebook friends shared our auction page with their friends.  Thanks to that support, we had 37,475 page views in 2 weeks!!

While we're still waiting on a few final payments (there have been some issues with email invoices going to spam folders, so we're extending grace in timing in these situations), our final intake from this fundraiser has been a complete loaves and fishes story.  God has seen our hearts poured out for Him in this adoption and the labor of love we tirelessly put into this auction.  He's seen the hearts of our friends and even complete strangers who have surrounded us as the Village.  He has taken each individual prayer, donation and bid and multiplied it exponentially.

Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.  ~Acts 2:33

The total amount raised by our fundraiser auction is a humbling,
bring-me-to-my-knees $4,072!!!!!!

We serve a mighty God. A God who loves orphans. A God who adopted each of us into His family, and who ordained adoption as a servant-hood close to His heart. A God who is faithful to those who say YES to Him...even when it doesn't make sense. ALL praise & honor & glory to Him who has blessed us so richly and may He bless each of you who has come alongside us on this journey!!!
