Moving Mountains

Well folks, Brian leaves in less than 2 weeks.  The waiting and waiting has now turned into rushing and rushing!

Rushing to fill out the last of our paperwork.
Rushing to get packed.
Rushing to get the house ready.
Rushing to raise a few more dollars.  Ok, a few more thousand dollars. OUCH!  Some of the funds that we expected to come through by now didn't and some expenses that we didn't expect (yes, our washing machine died this week) have occurred.  I'm trying to stay calm about that part and trust God will move mountains to get our girls home--but I think I'm going to need some help from all of you, too.  So here I am once again humbly asking you to:

SUPPORT OUR GARAGE SALE--on Saturday, March 31, we will be having another garage sale at our home.  If you have items you would like to donate, please contact me and we can arrange to have them picked up or you can drop them by our house.  Then come by on Saturday and shop til you drop!!! It is a huge community wide garage sale and it runs from 7am-2pm. We are splitting the proceeds with the Mosley's, another adoptive family from our church.  So every cent goes to bringing home babies!

SUPPORT US AT GIVE1SAVE1--We have been chosen as the Give1Save1 family during the week of April 8-14.  That means any money donated that week on the Give1Save1 website goes directly to our family.  A new family adopting from Africa is featured every week.  I think that the least that any family raised was about $800, but the most was over $8000.  How about that for moving mountains!  I know many of you have already donated to us so what I am asking of you is to SPREAD THE WORD! Keep hitting Share Share Share on your Facebook page, put it on your blog, tweet it, shout it from the rooftops. 

SHOP THE MORE LOVE STORE--I still have 42 MORE LOVE t-shirts on my shelf.  Do you have yours yet???  They are now $15 for 1 or $25 for 2. 

SUPPORT THE CHILDREN LEFT BEHIND--In addition to these last ditch efforts at fundraising, we are also collecting the following supplies to deliver to the orphanages that we visit on our trip:

Baby Formula--any size, any brand
Diaper Rash Ointment
Scabies Meds--the following are OTC and can be purchased at local Walmarts and Drug Stores...
[A200® Lice, Nix® Complete Lice Treatment System, Nix® Creme Rinse Lice Treatment, Nix® Creme Rinse, Nix® Lice Control Spray, Rid®]
Medical Supplies such as syringes, bandages, gauze, multivitamis for kids, and antibacterial creams, etc... etc....
fitted twin sheets
Money (to buy food in country for these precious children) 

All donations are GREATLY appreciated! You can also donate online at
https://app.etapestry.com/hosted/OurFamilyinAfrica_1/OnlineDonation.html

please specify that this is for "Team Spring Food for Orphanages". You can do so in the "Additional Information" section under "Comments"

Thank you thank you thank you in advance for serving "the least of these"!!!!!

So if all this talk hasn't convinced you to help us move some mountains then maybe this sweetie pie will!
