UPDATES AND HOW YOU CAN HELP AND PRAY:
I’m incredibly thankful for every one of you that is following our journey and praying along the way.
–ADOPTION PROGRESS – Filled out Ryker’s immigrant visa application online today! Now we wait a couple days till the next step. PLEASE PRAY THAT EACH STEP GOES AS EXPECTED WITHOUT DELAYS
–ESTIMATED TRAVEL INFO – We are on track to travel in December. We feel it is important for our whole family to go to China and be with Ryker those first two weeks. Because of this, we are praying for a family day of Dec. 18th or Dec. 25th. Either way we are anticipating being in China for Christmas. We were all granted our travel visas for China. PLEASE PRAY THAT AIRFARE AND TRAVEL PLANS GO SMOOTHLY. PLEASE PRAY THAT OUR PASSPORTS/VISAS ARE RETURNED TO US WITHOUT COMPLICATIONS.
FUNDRAISING – WE HAVE SOME BIG FEES NOW DUE!
We are astonished with the generosity of both close friends and people we’ve never met before. Adoption fees are big and scary and we’ve been able to see God’s faithfulness each step of the way. We have been able to pay each fee along the way without incurring any additional debt. Our next fee that is due is almost $6,000. We have some upcoming fundraisers that we are hoping to help with that fee.
–GARAGE SALE! November 18 we will be holding a garage sale to benefit our adoption. Please let us know if you have any items you’d like to donate!
–ONLINE AUCTION! We will be hosting an online auction Nov. 27-December 3. Please let us know if you have anything you are willing to donate for this as well! (Handcrafted items, Essential Oils, Skin Care, Toys, Sports Memorabilia, Collectibles, Books, Jewelry, and More!) We have a new Facebook group just for this auction and will be providing more info very soon!
–COIN JARS – We have a few coin jars made to help raise funds. Please let me know if you would like a jar for your home to collect your pocket change at the end of the day, or if you have a business and would be willing to place the jar by your point of sale. Every little bit helps!
