My God Shall Supply All Your Needs

It's hard to believe that an entire week has gone by since our Adoption Benefit Concert. The night was amazing! God blessed our socks off. Over 125 people came. The music was fantastic; the decorations, African; the snacks, tasty; the donations, generous. A good time was had by all. When we finished the evening, we had received almost $6000! We were stunned, humbled, beyond grateful for what an awesome church family God has blessed us with and what an awesome God we have.

Here we all are singing "Believe", a song that Pastormac wrote especially for us.




We got another surprise this last week but I'll save that for another post.

What this means is that we are now able to send our dossier into our agency (once we collect just the one or two more things we need to complete it.) We are one HUGE step closer to seeing our babies come home. Things are moving again. What we have left is our travel expenses.

We had so many people who helped us - our fellow band members and sound techs who practiced for hours and hours in the weeks leading up to the concert, our dear friends who handled all our advertising and then managed the evening, our creative decorator, our graphic artistic who created our terrific flyer, and our wonderful family who all came out and gave us moral support, lifted us up in their prayers and donated financially. Thank you to those of your out there in Bloggity Land who prayed for us that the evening would be a success. It far surpassed our wildest dreams. We are grateful to God. He is indeed an awesome God.

And my God shall suppy all your needs
according to riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

I am so delighted for you that the night was such a success! Very curious about the surprise! ;-)

Thanks for asking about me btw. I am very sorry for not replying earlier. Morning (Noon and night)sickness is doing a great job of keeping me away from the laptop....

All the best wishes to you and yours!

Praise the Lord!! That is so awesome. I'm a little late on this response as well, but I wanted to stop by to see if you had posted how things went. I'm excited to see things went so well and what a blessing to know you will be able to send things in and your children will be home with you even sooner!!
