Our entire family sits here in absolute awe of all that our Lord had done! On January 18th, we first learned about our sweet boy and committed to be his parents forever! On that same day, God clearly promised that He alone would provide every penny needed to bring our son home. Throughout this entire journey to Solomon, God has been faithful to provide. I was looking back at several post and am blown away by how clearly God has moved. Like here and remember this unbelievable post where God very clearly spoke to my heart about His perfect provision and to not be afraid here.
Last night when we heard the news that we have been given the gift of traveling tomorrow, our entire house was screaming for joy. Our precious Tr. said, "But mommy, what about the money. We don't have all of it. How can you go without the rest of the money?" Our sweet T ran straight to his room and insisted that we take his $20. With absolute confidence we told her we just knew that God was going to provide it.
We all went to bed wondering and trusting that the Lord would continue to move mightily for our family. Sooo, imagine our overwhelming joy when we woke up to the news that we have received a grant of $3500 from A Child Waits Foundation.
We can now buy our plane tickets!!!!!!!! We just finished adding everything up and it looks like we have met our minimums needed for traveling, God is so good...crazy, amazing GOOD!
For those of you that have been paying close attention, you should be wondering how this all happened so fast! Just a couple of days ago it was looking like we might not be able to travel in September at all, but we believe God performed a miracle in opening up the opportunity for us to travel TOMORROW! However, because of this short time frame, we have JUST been made aware of some additional unexpected expenses. So we need $2000 in 24 hours! We are a little shocked by this but know that God's hand is in this! We've been asked not to share the details at this point but we look forward to sharing all that the Lord has done!
To try to raise the rest of these funds, we are doing one LAST raffle. It's for an Ipod Touch!! Our precious friend, Amy, just donated one to us 2 days ago. She had thought it could help us with our final fees!! It's amazing to me how the Lord provided this need before we even knew we needed it :)
On a final note: We really want to bless Solomon with his puzzle FULL of names of the people who have loved him home whether it be by prayers, financial support, etc. So, if you have been part of this journey in any way, your name will be on the back of a puzzle piece :)
We have about 250 more pieces to go. Soooo, our raffle tickets will serve 2 purposes. For each $5 ticket you purchase, you will receive an entry in the Ipod Touch raffle AND your name on Solomon Puzzle!!
