Our yard sale was a HUGE success!! Can I just say that God is an amazing provider?! We set the goal of $4,000 to be raised with both of our yard sales (the one in Memphis and the one in Huntsville), and as I was typing that I was thinking how unlikely it would be to raise that much with just those 2 sales. It was a stretch. But I knew that was how much we needed, and I knew that if God was involved it was possible. Well the grand total was $4,070. !!! God knows what we need and he is faithful to provide! Don't you just love how God leads us to things that we absolutely cannot do without him? We can't afford this on our own! But when God tells us to do something, we can't say "no, God... I really don't have the money for that..." God is so much bigger than money. He just wants obedience.We have to trust that he will provide each little step of the way. It's such a relief to know that the next step is covered. It's still a little nerve-wracking to think about how much more we're going to need, but I can't wait to see how he will provide and what he will teach us through it.

I'm so so thankful for everyone who donated (we had SO. MANY. amazing donations) and everyone who helped or contributed in some way! There were countless people involved in this, and we couldn't have done it without you!! We are all totally exhausted and don't particularly want to ever think about having another yard sale ever again, but it was definitely worth it. :)

We've been enjoying our summer and trying to get everything together to complete our home study.....doing LOTS of reading at this point, and we still have a lot more to get through. And still getting lots of shirt orders! More pictures here! And if you'd like to order one you can go here. So thankful to be on this journey!!
