Van's and upated need

We worked last night at Van's Pig Stand in Norman and had a great time!
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us.
We were able to share our story with several new people.
We weren't as busy last night as we were last week so we were able to spend more time with each person that came in and answer questions and share our story.

The staff was so welcoming and we had friends that came and helped us - Thanks Gina and Logan!!
The kids loved helping in the drive thru again and going around to the tables to help clear them off and even deliver food... we had to do that one with help! LOL

With all of our Van's money from last week and our tips from last night
and a few other donations,
we raised another $346.00!! 

That takes our need down to $19,706.00!!

We are only 18 days away from leaving to meet our son and daughter and we can't wait!

We are trying to come up with other ideas of how to raise funds and get the word out over the next 2 weeks as we prepare to leave.  If you have any ideas we can do in that short of time let me know~

We are still doing our puzzle fundraiser -
Don't know what that is??
Check it out..
We shopped all around and found a puzzle we all really like called "Old Glory" The neat thing about this puzzle is that it is a photomosaic.. meaning it is a big picture made up of many smaller pictures of things that happen here in the US. It is a perfect example of all the love and lovely things the kids will experience here in the US and is also a symbol of the freedom they are receiving by coming to America and their forever Family with us! :)



It has 1000 pieces. For every $10 donated to the Puzzle Fundraiser we will put 1 piece in the puzzle. We will be posting pictures of the progress every so often. When we have enough donations to finish the puzzle we will have raised $10,000 towards Adrian and Ava's Adoption and we will have the finished puzzle posted on our website.

Every $10 donation for a puzzle piece will have the name of the person donating written on the back of the puzzle piece. We will keep the puzzle and they will be able to grow up and see all the names of people who donated to put that puzzle together for them and be a part of
bringing them home!

We have 916 puzzle pieces left as of today!

I wanted to share this song that God gave me this morning as well...

Oh what I would do to have

The kind of faith it takes
To climb out of this boat
I'm in
Onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He's holding out His hand
But the waves are calling out my name
And they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times
I've tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again.
'Boy, you'll never win!'
'You'll never win!'

But the voice of truth tells me a different story

The voice of truth says, 'Do not be afraid!'

The voice of truth says, 'This is for My glory'

Out of all the voices calling out to me

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand
But the giant's calling out my name
And he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times
I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again.
'Boy you'll never win!'
'You'll never win!'

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don't seem so high
From on top of them lookin' down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

God speaks to me through so many things and this song was one this morning. 

I will have more info to update in a bit ....

Stay tuned! :)
