A Way to Help

Today officially moves us into the month of October ... which also means that our baby boy is due to make his appearance next month!  This month is going to fly by as we have some baby showers scheduled, and we are working to get our house ready for this little guy.  [Hopefully he will have a name soon!]  

The start of the new month also means that we are creeping closer to the date that all of our adoption funds are due.  While we have seen God work in incredible ways already, we are still needing about $5,000 in order to complete our adoption.  

It still gets to me every time I think about the fact that all we lack is this amount.  Nine months ago, Clay and I sat with fearful hearts as we stepped out in faith and obeyed the calling God had given us to adopt.  Back then, one of our biggest fears was the financial aspect.  God has exceedingly and abundantly provided more than we could have imagined, and He used many of you to bless us and give generously to us as we were working towards our goal.  We have learned more about the body of Christ, and also been challenged in how we give to others.  

We now have one more opportunity for you to help us reach our goal.  We have some incredible friends and family who have graciously offered to host a chili supper and silent auction in order to push us closer to having all the needed funds for our adoption.  

Here are the details:  

WHAT:  Chili Supper and Silent Auction 

WHEN:  Thursday, October 17th

TIME:  Drop-In from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. 

WHERE:  The NEW Benton Event Center -- We are so excited to get to use this new venue!  

COST:  Tickets cost $8 for adults, $4 for children and there is a family maximum of $25.  

We are hoping you and your family (or friends) can make it out and eat a bowl of chili and maybe even bid on an item in the silent auction.  We have had lots of great auction items donated!  

We will be selling tickets beforehand, so please contact Clay or I about who to get them from.  (Text, call, email or facebook us!)  Please contact me with any other questions you may have!  

We are extremely grateful for your support!  It truly does take a village ... and a chili supper, too!
