Garage Sale Update

Yes, it’s been weeks since our ‘Adoption Garage Sale’, but we’re just now finalizing things and are excited to report back to everyone involved.
There were 25 families that donated items to the sale that raised almost $3,800! Now, that is an amazing thing all by itself. But even cooler is this: Our orphanage requires a payment for each child when the family is matched with the child and then another when they take the child home. We are adopting two kids, so our payment is double. The total cost for our first payment was $3500 and the lawyer fees were about $150. God gave us what we needed for this important first round – actually a little more than we needed! That is really impressive!

And people are still asking about ways to partner with us to get these little guys home. We feel certain that God will continue to ‘multiply’ this garage sale to complete the second payment as well. (Someday, we’ll tell more of the story of what’s going on even now behind the scenes.)

You played such a big part in making this a great success for our family and we THANK YOU!
Everyone’s enthusiasm and joy for us was such a gift and a blessing. We were overwhelmed by your generosity and were tremendously blessed before the first dime even came in!! Just watching the body of Jesus rally together on behalf of two precious orphans in the middle of Uganda was crazy and profoundly humbling. Thank you all!
With great joy and gratitude –

the sale
