As many of you may have remembered, we were blessed this past Christmas morning with the amazing surprise of a puzzle fundraiser that was organized by Heidi’s mom. That morning, and the subsequent months that have followed, we have continued to be overwhelmed with the generosity and support of so many. The puzzle pieces were sold for $10.00 a piece for a 500 piece puzzle. Each piece purchased will have the name of the donator written on the back. The puzzle will be framed in a double-frame with glass on either side so that it can seen for years to come all of the love and prayers that helped carry us to our blessing(s) in Ethiopia.
We received the puzzle this week and are pleased to share it with everyone (shown above). We will be sure to post pictures of the puzzle being constructed as our fundraiser progresses. To date, we have already sold over 250 of the 500 pieces are so excited to see it completed over the next several months. I know that it will be the center-piece to our completed nursery and an amazing reminder of our journey.
As God often does, he answered our prayers abundantly this evening for a renewal of strength as he not only brought us our puzzle this week, but we were pleased to find out that we have dropped another number on the unofficial siblings list to #3 — so excited! As I mentioned in my post earlier this week God’s timing is so beautifully perfect. What an amazing God we serve, the one who can move mountains. We will continue to give him the praise for every step of this long and winding journey for we would certainly not have the strength and determination to do this on our own. Ephesians 3:20 God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine…
Our heart felt appreciation goes out to all of those who have participated in our fundraisers, lifted us up in a prayer, or just provided a word of encouragement. Your kindness and generosity has been unimaginable.
