Our Need

I don't like to talk about money; it's my least favorite part of this whole process. But we will be traveling soon (stay tuned for a BIG announcement tomorrow!) and I feel that God has put it on my heart to share about our need. After all, no one can donate if they don't know what we need, right?? So here is an update on our fundraising situation:

We are currently $5000 shy of being fully funded. We've had a few local fundraisers that brought in a total of $500. I feel incredibly blessed by how God has provided so far and we are truly in the home stretch! But we need to make it to the finish line.

We have been saving our own money as well. We anticipate spending quite a bit of that on supplies in the next few weeks as we get Zara's room and our house ready for her arrival. Being new parents we have absolutely nothing in the way of supplies. We need to buy a crib, a carseat, a stroller, bedding and much more. All that to say, we don't know how much of our savings we will have left when it comes time to travel.

I think we have a donation of $2000 coming in soon, so that leaves us with $3000 remaining. Can you help us? It would only take three donations of $1000 for us to be fully funded. Remember, all donations are tax-deductible. Any amount, large or small, is helpful. Be prepared for God to bless you because of your generosity!

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matt 6:19-21
