follow-up on Monday night

Amber and I just wanted to update you all on how the Chick-fil-A fundraiser went.  

Well, it was awesome!  The place was packed for 3 hrs straight and we got to have a lot of really good conversations about adoption, God's calling of a disciple, music, etc.  I even got to talk with 2 families who were greatly considering adoption themselves.  One other conversation was with a guy who just got back from a military deployment...IN ETHIOPIA!!!  It was really encouraging to hear his stories about the wonderful community over there, the beautiful people, and the presence of God specifically in these orphanages.  

As far as the funds go, we made $433 from the purchases, and $250 in our donation bucket.  So, all total, we made almost $700 toward our adoption with this one day fundraiser!!!  It was amazing!

Thanks so much to all of you who came out and bought food, helped serve guests, helped clean tables, stuck around to make me feel cool, etc.  It really was a great night and I am so grateful for God's faithful provision of not only money, but great community as well!
