1 of 1000!

Marty and I have the most amazing family and friends. My Mom, our family and some of our close friends had dinner last week and Mom said something about if 1000 people would donate $13 each we'd be fully funded. I linked our FSP on facebook that evening and mentioned the same fact. This morning, I woke up and found that while I was sleeping, Rebecca (our friend from dinner) had created a facebook event inviting people to be one of 1000 to donate $13 for our boys to come home.

Until you've been in this process, you have no idea how difficult it is to trust God to speak to the hearts of his people to give on your behalf. It was encouraging this morning to wake up and see $13 had been donated while we slept. I know it might not seem like much, but it was the exact amount I needed this morning. The exact amount of encouragement. We've been a little over 2 weeks without a donation until today. I had been a little discouraged, but just kept thinking our big fundraiser is this Saturday and we'll bring in some money then.

I'm out of things to offer, right now. I can't offer the type of reward God promises, anyways. I can invite you once again, to be a part of our journey. To be one of 1000 in this strong army of God to help bring our boys home. There's a link on the right hand side of the blog. It has a donate button. You can click the button and follow the link to make a tax deductible donation directly to our grant at Reece's Rainbow.

Thank you in advance to each who will give, for your sacrifice for our boys and our family. Thank you, Rebecca, for believing in us and helping every step of the way. Thank you, God, for the right amount of encouragement every step of the way.

Hidden in Christ,
