Pooped & Busy but Excited About A Great Opportunity to Bless Others

So...what's happening over here in adoption land???  Lots!  We are busy little bees lately as we enter fundraising central.  Who ever thought fundraising was such hard work and time-consuming?  Well it is but it is so worth it!  I'll say that time and time again because I believe it. 

Sometimes I get a bit weary because there are lots of long nights and early mornings.  We are coming down to the wire with our Both Hands project.  This project is founded on the principle in James 1:27 where God challenges believers to take care of the widow and the orphan.  It's really amazing!  We select a widow within the community and just have an opportunity to shower her with blessings in the form of home repairs.  As we hit the home stretch, we'll be focusing hard on getting the necessary supplies to repair a widow's home.  We are busy looking for businesses who will donate things like paint, bathroom fixtures, a vanity, and a host of other supplies.  In total, we'd love to make around $3,000 - $4,000 in repairs to her home.  We have a crew of A++ contractors lined up who have generously agreed to donate their time.  It's a big feat but we're excited about what God will do.  Stay tuned to see what God does....this is all really so unbelievable!

Here's a quick view of the Valdez family working on a widow's home.  I love these stories.  There will be more to come and guess what....in the coming weeks, you'll be able to see ours!
