Well, we are pretty much settled in Louisville (still a few things left to put away...) and it is time for our next fundraiser! Woohoo!! Since our home study is now complete, that means we have a home study bill to pay and we only have part of the funds :) Therefore, this Saturday (20th) from about 11-6, we will be grilling out and selling hot dogs/hamburgers, chips and drinks at the Dillard's at St. Matthews Mall. We will be set up around the back on the dock (where the trucks unload) of the Men's store. This will be right next to El Nopal (the old Panera in the mall). If you are out and about and are planning to eat out for lunch, please stop in and see us. We'd greatly appreciate it!! If you aren't in Louisville or planning to eat out Saturday, please pray that God will use this time for us to share His word with the people who stop in to see us. Please pray that these people will be able to see God's love for them and all the millions of orphans worldwide. Finally, please pray that we will trust that He will provide all that we need for this next step :)
Also, we sent off our first grant application this past week to Lifesong and got an email notification today that it had been received. We are waiting on a letter from our agency and then we are going to apply for a few more grants as well.
I've also started making bows again and have quite a few ready to sell to bring this child home :) Let me know if you're interested! Thanks for all your prayers and support! This is a long process and it is easy to get discouraged but we are trusting in the Lord that this will all be completed in His timing and we will be able to bring our precious child home exactly when He wants us to.
