We have been thinking about and planning for this event for months. We had no idea what to expect or how people would respond. We were so encouraged by the ways our community came together to hear our hearts, pray for us and financially support our mission. Our call to adopt leaves us with several needs. One of our most pressing needs is financial.
Our financial need feels overwhelming at times. We need approximately $40,000 to cover the adoption fees. We have been so blown away by the generosity of people who feel called to support us financially. Through the event, we raised $11,000 for our adoption. Because of our matching grant through Lifesong for Orphans, this means we raised a total of $17,000 for Kai's adoption! We are so grateful to God for His provision and to all of you for your generosity! For more information on continued support for Kai, click here.
We were so encouraged by the community that came to support us in the adoption at the event. So many of you touched us by your presence and generosity. As much as we need financial support, we are desperate for the support of community and prayer. Thank you for giving so generously to us in all of these ways. We are blessed by your support to care for this orphan. God is using each of you in this mission. Thank you so much for all of your love and generosity. We are truly humbled by your love.
