Hebrews 4:16 has been replaying in my mind the past two days, and I knew that I needed to "approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." If there ever was a time of need, it is now. Our daughter lives in an orphanage in Eastern Europe, and we received an approval from her country in only four days, when we expected 2-3 weeks to fundraise before hearing back. We now have FOUR DAYS left to raise the funds that are due to the placing agency!
It's only fair that, since we were matched with our little girl, and we have an anonymous donor matching the YMCA Giveaway donations, that we would have a MATCHING CHALLENGE for the Vacation Giveaway, too!
The next $2,000 we receive for the Vacation Giveaway (through ChipIn or cash/check in hand) will be matched, dollar for dollar! So that $10 just became $20, and that $50 just became $100! This is HUGE! We are watching God move this mountain, in a way only He can!
In case you've forgotten how beautiful this vacation will be, here's a fresh reminder:
For specific information on each giveaway, you can see more photos and get descriptions HERE and HERE! The first ChipIn button is for the 6-Night Pigeon Forge, TN vacation, and the second ChipIn button is for the One-Year Membership to the Martinsville/Collinsville YMCA.
Thank you again for all the support and encouragement, and thank you for getting us closer to our little girl!
