Give1Save1 - Wednesday

The total right now is $736!

Do you remember the scene from Facing The Giants when the main character is sitting in the living room with his head in his hands? You know, the scene where he gets the best news ever? He said, "I'm overwhelmed!"

I am overwhelmed. I could never have expected such gracious gifts to our Micah, to us, to our family.

I am overwhelmed.

Give1Save1 Update - Tuesday

So, today was our second day on The total comes to $471 as of 7:55pm CST!

I can barely believe it! I can hardly stand it! I am so thankful to each of you who have given and are praying for our family.

Keep on praying!

To those of you who know my extended family...My mom heard from my dad this morning. He left Houston on 11/1 to go to Nigeria and then Sierra Leone to train pastors for upcoming projects through International Commission (where he is the VP of African Evangelism). We had not heard from him since he left, which is a little odd. This morning, he was finally able to call Mom. She said he was calling from a ferry, on the way to Freetown.

Keep on praying for Africa. Pray for Micah, in Ethiopia. Pray for the churches in/around Lagos, Nigeria. Pray for Sierra Leone. Pray for Dad to get home safely this weekend.

Thank you for checking in. I didn't cry today. This is actually surprising. But, I have a terrific headache and crying would have made it worse. So, I will probably compensate tomorrow. ;-)

This week our family is being featured on!

I can't begin to tell you how humbled we are by this experience thus far. My phone keeps letting me know that I've got an email. Most of the day, those emails have been from PayPal, alerting me to a donation being made.

So far, I have cried in Lowe's, HomeDepot, the doctor's office, in my car, in our office and in my room.

If you can't tell or if you've never met me before...I am a crier. God didn't make Larry in this same fashion. However, after being married for 12 years (anniversary was yesterday), Larry knows just how to reach over and rub my shoulder to let me know that he would cry, too...if he was the type. What a great guy I have!!!

As of right now, you all have given $389! That's 1.3% of our total costs raised in just one day! I am overwhelmed!

My current favorite verse is Deuteronomy 10:21 NASB, which says, "He is your praise and He is your God, who has done these great and awesome things for you which your eyes have seen." Amen and Amen!!!

I will keep the blog updated each evening with totals and more locations in which I cry! Just in case you're interested!!!
