Week Two Update
Loving Choice Fees as of 8/18
There are no words to express the deep
gratitude that our family feels after the out-pouring of love that was
shown tonight. We wish that we could have sat with each and everyone of
you to tell you how God is providing for our adoption journey.
It honestly was a blur. Please accept my most sincere thanks for honoring us with your presence, your encouragement, and your generosity. Chick-fil-a told us that this was a "very good" Spirit Night. Saturday
nights are usually really slow and it was the first night running the
store for the 19 year-old manager. :) She
was amazed at how slammed they were. Most spirit nights have 6-12
flyers all night but tonight the tellers said that most of the people
ordering had flyers and the restaurant did very well. We will know the
official number until Monday or Tuesday but we anticipate it doing
exceedingly more than we expected. Thus fare we have raised an incredible $13,177 over the past two weeks! (Remember this
doesn't even include the Chick-fil-a receipt money) I am amazed at the
love that our community of friends and family have shown for us. Most of
all I am grateful to God for bringing so many wonderful people along
for the journey. His tender compassion and bountiful care is a balm to my soul. Thank you all so much. We are very
nearly to our goal of $16k. To God alone be the glory!
