Fundraiser response

Holy cow! Can I just say Holy Cow!

Let me start by thanking God for all the wonderful blessings in our day to day lives. For all the emotional and physical hardships we've been through we have so much to be grateful for. Over and over we've thanked for the encouragement and concern of those around us, the prayer we've received and love that we've felt. People will say "I wish there was more I could do or some way I could help". You just don't understand that by lifting our spirits and letting us know you're supporting us, you're giving such a special gift to our family.

We kicked off a fundraiser this week through Tupperware that my mother is doing a fantastic job of handling. Thanks, Mom, I love you. We got a bunch of packets, drafted letters of explanation and thought we'd get the word and see what happened.

What happened is that within 3 days, all the books are gone, I have a list of people that I have to get more books to and calls and emais just pouring in from people who want to help and contribute. It's overwhelming and humbling and an answer to prayer and a sign of God's constant hand in our lives. When I get anxious and frustrated, someone will remind me that God will provide, and he always does.

For those wonderful people out of our area who volunteered to help, I had to hoark your books from Mom and she's ordering more to send you all. Thanks for waiting and offering to help!

We are thankful to every person who gives of their time to help us. There is no way to express our thanks.
