***UPDATE*** Since yesterday's post, one other envelope has come back, and funds for an item I sold have come in. We now need under $3500 to be able to travel, so this $400 match will get us 25% closer! The next $400 to show up in our FSP will be matched!!!
I mentioned in my last post that we need $4,000 more before we travel, and now, we could take care of 20% of that in one go! We have a $400 MATCH!!!
Through this adoption, we will be able to show our children the truth of Jeremiah 29:11, that God has a plan to prosper them, to give them a hope and a future. So, when YOU help us fill Envelope #29, our MATCH will fill Envelope #11!
All donations can be made to our grant on Reece's Rainbow, and no donation is too small! $5 becomes $10, $10 becomes $20, and $50 becomes $100. Please comment here if you contribute to Envelope #29 so I know when the matching challenge has been met. (If you're working on a different envelope, let me know if a donation comes in for that, so our match completes Envelopes #29 and #11.)
Thank you so much for sowing seed into our adoption, and for the continued prayers for our family!
***I've shared about the ENVELOPES before, but to summarize the idea, there are 50 envelopes that people (like YOU!) can commit to filling. Each of the
large envelopes holds 4 smaller envelopes. If each small envelope is
filled with $100 (either cash or donations to our grant online), the
large envelope will hold $400. Having 50 envelopes filled with $400
each would amount to $20,000 toward our adoption expenses, getting us to
the "Fully Funded" status.***
