McKenna has raised over $650 so far with her Bike a Thon fundraiser!!! It has been a beautiful experience for her and the whole family. The most beautiful part is seeing God work in it all.
We will be riding the 20 miles as a family the last week of May so anyone feeling led to sponsor her please feel free to send us and email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send you a sponsorship packet!! :)
We have 3 community fundraisers planned before the children come home. We will be selling homemade crafts at the local farmers market this summer. We will also be selling apparent project bracelets at 3 local events this summer including 2 craft fairs. And then a friend of ours has said she was willing to help us with an adoption yard and bake sale the last week in June. We will be asking around locally for people to donate items during the month on June.
We love doing fundraisers!! Not just because they raise money to help bring our children home. God could drop the money in our laps in many ways even without fundraising. We've seen it. But what we love is getting the word out about special needs adoptions and showing others that the Lord WILL provide for those who step out in faith. People get to see the Lord working in our adoptions and providing for us to adopt debt free and it plants a seed. God is good and when we say yes to the calling on our lives He takes it from there and we just need to hold on for the ride.
Praise God for continuing to provide for our family and for all He has done and will continue to do to bring our children home!!!
