Ready for shoppers!
**A BIG thank you to our neighbors who generously allowed us to use their driveways during the sale**
The day was amazing as we met SO many people and were able to share our story and faith through this event. Many people had heard about our yard sale and adoption through the newspaper article that was printed on Saturday, April 27th which can be found here. They had also seen our story on Facebook as many of our dear friends had posted information about us and gotten the word out. We had steady shoppers until around 2:00 pm but our last sale was made at about 6:00 pm.
As we cleaned up and finally sat down to eat dinner at 7:00pm...we were completely exhausted but knew that God had worked in BIG ways through our fundraising event. We had numerous opportunites to glorify and share his love that day. God remained faithful, as always, by providing us with people who were generous and donated countless items, friends and family that had helped us collect items in the weeks prior, use their trucks, use their garages and driveways for storage and the actual yard sale, connected us with people who could spread the word (ie: through the article in the paper/facebook), and who woke up before the sun to come help us out and who continued to come help throughout the day. He also provided abundantly in our efforts to raise financial support as the final amount raised by the end of the day exceeded $2,700.00!!!! We know that God is behind us in this effort and if God is for us..than who can be against us (Romans 8:31)!?! Thank you all for your love, prayers, and support and PRAISE GOD for the blessings he continues to pour out over us!
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
