Top 10

We are already in the
As of yesterday, we'd only been on the list for 8 days and had moved 4 spaces!!! Wow! Praise Jesus!

Also, the Lord has been at work in some dear friends' adoption from Ethiopia! I have been overwhelmed this week by the trials that so many dear brothers' and sisters' have gone through as they wait and wait and wait to bring their children home. I KNOW that the Lord loves these orphans even more than we do and that He desires them to be placed in loving, Christian homes. This morning he moved mighty mountains and answered the prayers that we have been praying for months for our friends!!! I am overjoyed at this news but am hesitant to share more details because of the sensitivity of adoptions in Ethiopia right now. Just know that we are PRAISING Him today!!! Now we are praying that these precious children will be home by Christmas :)

On another note:
Tis the season to begin buying Christmas gifts for friends, family, acquaintances, teachers, coworkers, and everyone else. Please check out my fundraising tab to see NEW gift ideas including cookbooks and fleece blankets. What better way to spend money that you are already planning to spend than to help bring an orphan home at the same time?? Also, check out our friends' adoption fundraiser at They are selling handmade Christmas wreaths and such. They are beautiful!!
