The Garage Sale

A while back, some friends of ours made this crazy courageous leap of faith to move out of their home and into a RV. They, along with their gaggle of girls (4 of them), will be journeying through North America to serve and spread the Good News of Jesus. After a few estate sales and a few more Garage Sales, the time came for them to officially pack it all up and move into the RV. In passing, my dear friend mentioned to me that she would be taking the last of what was left and donating it to Good Will. Well, the thought occurred to me, "Hey, lemme take it and have a Garage Sale to help raise funds for our adoption." (Oops, I forgot that I don't particularly like Garage Sales. So. Much. Work.)

Well, then it just kind of exploded. This person heard what we were doing, and then so did that person. I made a small comment on our church's Facebook page. And before you know it, our house looks like something off that TV show Hoarders. (Oops, I totally forgot that the Amazing Mister really hates Garage Sales too. But bless his beautiful heart, he didn't complain once!)

Thanks to all of our AMAZING FRIENDS and FAMILY for all the wonderful donations, the shopping you did at the garage sale, the refreshing of good Sweet Tea, and the helping to entertain our 3 little blondies.. we made just over $400 during the garage sale!

I am completely humbled and count it such a treasure that each of you that gave or served us in this way! Thank you so much for loving us and for encouraging us along in this process!

Please be praying for us as we work towards starting our homestudy! With God's provision, we feel like we will be ready to start the homestudy in August.
