Movie Tickets Update

We have less than 2 weeks till our Movie we have been trying hard to sell tickets! My kids have been going door to door, we have friends trying to sell tickets at their workplaces,we are trying to sell virtual tickets and we are PRAYING!!!!!! It is not an easy thing to ask anyone for donations. Everyone is trying to save money and we are asking them to give it to us. When we started this journey we new we would need to raise some money but not the amount we have been seeking. We tried many different avenues to try to generate the needed income. Like most people we did not have $30,000 sitting in the bank when we started out. We knew where God was leading us and we knew he would help us figure out the details. Sometimes you have to jump in with both feet and rely completely on your trust in the Lord!!! As I look at pictures of our children..I would whatever I have to to get them home! They are sad, lonely, confused, they have lost their family and need us!! So forgive us for asking for donations but they are our children that God hand-picked for us and we want them home!

We are waiting for courts to open next week with high hopes!!! We are hopeful that we will finally get to meet our children in person by mid-October!!!! I want so badly to hold them and tell them we are their family and we are doing everything we can to get them home!!!

Their sweet hands!!! We can't post pics until we pass court hopefully next month!
Our current amount that we have raised is $1263, our goal for the movie is to raise $3000 but we would really like to raise more. Our total for both trips will be anywhere between $10-15,000!!! So please continue to share our story! Buy a ticket or two or make a donation to our "Chip In" button on the side of the blog. Most of all we ask for your prayers!! This is a long, hard journey we need all the prayers we can get!! Thank you to everyone who is helping us! Words cannot express how grateful we are! To everyone who might have happened upon our blog for the first time because our kids knocked on your door...Thank you!!! Please take sometime and read about our journey to our Ethiopian blessings!!

  1. I just wanted to encourage you to continue to fundraise in whatever ways you can. The movie ticket idea is great and unique and I pray that it will be very successful for you.

    Before we brought our kids home from Ethiopia, we did two clothing sales, a bake sale, and a huge garage sale. It was amazing to see what God could do when we put out trust in Him to provide. Wishing you all the best in your journey.
