This past Saturday was truly a celebration of God's goodness and my heart is full! If you hadn't heard the news, we were blessed with a concert benefit by several Christian artists to raise money for our adoption! It was truly epic to watch how God brought people from all over the state and country just to support bringing two little boys home from the Congo. We were blessed by having FOUR bands play for us! We had The James Robert Band, Living Stones, The Matthew Moore Band, and Shaun Groves! Amazing.
and the BIGGEST little hero of the night? A 4th grader with the faith of a GIANT. This little man of God, decided to ask for something much bigger than toys or video games for his birthday. He asked to help bring two little boys home from Africa. So what did he do? He asked for $ instead of presents from all his relatives, and raised money, and GAVE. And he GAVE a LOT! Owen was able to raise well over $200 and gave it all to us! This is true faith. The faith of a child.
SO.....everyone is waiting to hear....the grand total for the night was $2092.55! Hooray!!!!!!!
Truly, we are in awe of everything that happened that night. Every penny given, no matter the amount, and every hug of support and prayer and lifelines to us and our boys in Congo. God will provide every penny we need for those boys. We are simply called to love and obey Him. THIS IS religion that is pure and blameless in HIS eyes. So we want to thank each of you personally. Since we couldn't possibly do that, we made a little video to say thank you. ENJOY!
