Had a telephone call from adoption agent. We talked about our in country expenses and travel expenses. Well, let's just say $15,000+. So we are in fundraising overdrive. Facebook auction scheduled for first weekend in February. We are collecting donated items for the auction. And we have purchased a 500 piece puzzle that we felt best represents our adoption journey. The puzzle pieces are $10 each. Your name will be written on the back of each piece you purchase. Pictures will be posted here and on Facebook. Updates will be posted as more pieces are purchased. We plan to display the completed puzzle so that the front and back can be seen. It will serve as a reminder to our family and Jacii of all of those who contributed to bringing her home.
I'm (Michelle)still filling jewelry orders. That has really been a great means to raise money. Thank you, April. T-shirts are also available.
We are very blessed to remember all that the Lord has done for each of us. As you reflect, remember His blessings in your life. Won't you consider sharing God's blessings? Let us ALL make 2012 a great year and share the love of Christ with the orphans in this world. There are so many orphans who need our help. Let's start with one at a time.
Please continue to pray for Jacii. Pray for her health and safety while in China without her mommy and daddy. Our agent said today that we will not be traveling in March as we have not yet recieved our letter of acceptance. As soon as we recieve our letter, it should be a month or two before we recieve our travel approval. Once we recieve travel approval, it could be another month until we are flying to China. Pray for patience. Pray for provision. Pray for peace. Pray that God prepare us for the journey ahead once Jacii is home.
We love each and everyone of you. Thank you for all your prayers and support.
