Only 2 Days Left...

...of our One-Week Challenge!

So far it has been going really well. We challenged you, our friends, to give Riley a birthday gift of $20. Our goal was to get 13 people to do this by TOMORROW! So far we've got 9!! That's only 4 more to go! Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who's donated so far. But we still need 4 more of you...I know you're out there! We need you, friends.

We've got a busy weekend ahead. Tomorrow, which is Riley's 2nd birthday, we'll be selling Christmas ornaments at our church's Christmas party. On Saturday we'll be setting up/decorating for Riley's birthday party on Sunday, where we'll be taking donations and hopefully have our puzzle piece fundraiser going.

Could you please pray that this weekend is extremely fruitful in fundraising for us? The amount we need to raise is so daunting. And I hate asking people for money, I really do. I've done fundraising for the four missions trips I've been on and it was always a struggle. Sometimes I can't believe I actually signed up for this, raising $20,000. BUT! God is faithful.

Also...YOU'RE OFFICIALLY INVITED to Riley's birthday party this Sunday, Dec. 5! For those of you in the Blacksburg area, the party will be held at our church's potluck lunch, immediately following our 9:30 service (starting around 11am) at 130 Jackson Street. For directions to the location you can click here.

We hope to see you there.
