We just got some news we had been praying to hear!! We've been approved for a $4,000 matching grant through Immanuel Baptist Church and Lifesong for Orphans!!! If this grant is funded in its entirety ($8,000), it will cover the complete referral cost for our child!!!!
We KNOW the Lord wants us to bring this precious child home and we KNOW that He will provide the funds needed but sometimes it's discouraging when it takes soooo very long to raise a little bit....We are soooo encouraged by this great news! Thanks so much to Immanuel and Lifesong!!!! Thanks does not even begin to put into words, the gratitude that we are feeling right now...We will post more info on this as soon as we hear exactly how the funds can be donated and we get our support letter written. *Editing this to share how you can donate if you feel led to do so...You write your check to Lifesong for Orphans and in the memo line, write "preference Koenig/#2257 adoption." Then, mail your check to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 40/202 N. Ford St., Gridley, IL 61744. This donation is completely tax deductible!
Please join with us in prayer that all of this support will be raised and that none of this gift will be wasted. Thanks be to God!
On another note, we are working on another fundraiser - a cookbook!! We are currently collecting any and all recipes to go into a cookbook that will be back in time for Christmas delivery. It would make a wonderful gift for ANYONE you know! If you have any yummy recipes, please pass them on by this Saturday, the 22nd...Thanks in advance!!
