yard sale report!

Our yard sale was a huge success!!  Our goal was to raise enough money to cover Micah's expenses for our trip to China (~$2500), and we reached our goal!!  We are thrilled!  We COULD NOT not have done it without all the generous contribution of "stuff" from our church family -- nor, could we have reached our goal without our precious friends around the world who gave monetary donations!!

Thank You!!!!!!

...all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.

We have a final fundraiser that will begin this week -- it's a silent auction on our blog -- look for the items to be posted tomorrow evening.  This time we are raising funds toward the orphanage/adoption fees owed in China...~$7000.  We certainly don't anticipate raising all that we need -- just wanted you to know how it will help!!!  The orphanage fee is actually around $5000, and helps fund China's social welfare institutes--the what/where that many Chinese boys and girls call home (includes care-givers, food, medical care, and other basic necessities).
