What's That? A Match?

***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.***
