8 Days of Cheerful Giving

8 days!

Within minutes of my post unveiling our fundraiser (to raise funds for our legal fees) the first piece was donated- seriously, it was about 10 minutes!  

From that moment,  to early this afternoon when we received funds for last piece, we have been blown away by the response we have experienced. 

blown. away.

You, God's beautiful children, have seen a need and you have opened your hearts to us (1 John 3:16-18).  You have loved us with your prayers and your gifts and for that we are eternally grateful.  Truly words cannot express the encouragement we felt with each piece donated.

We pray that you are blessed and that your hearts are encouraged knowing that the Lord loves a cheerful giver.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.  

PS- if you were excited about donating a piece but were unable to do so before they were all gone- thank you!  We welcome and appreciate any donations for our remaining expenses (more on this in another post).  We will even find some room on the back of the puzzle to add your name if you'd like! :)

PSS- Any funds we receive above and beyond what we need for Ruthie's adoption we plan to give to our dear friends that are raising funds to adopt 2 children from Ethiopia.  To God be the glory!
