The Body of Christ, as seen in high school ministry.

Today, I'm thankful for the body of Christ, especially for the body that is our high school youth group. Thursdays we have youth group, the past Thursday didn't start off much different than any other, but it ended differently. Two students came to Justin and handed him money, totally unexpected. To some, it might not have been much, but to us it meant everything. We're pretty open with our students about our adoption and the steps we're at and things like that-but we've never once mentioned money to them in any way, one student just said he had read our blog and wanted to help, and handed Justin $10, the other gave us 5 one dollar bills. Every single donation that we receive big and small means the world to us, but this one was just struck a chord in my heart. I love the students that we work with, and I can't wait to bring our baby home to meet not only our students, but every single person who's helped support us bring him home. You all mean so much to us .

Fundraiser #2! We will be having a yard sale to fund raise for our adoption. If you have any items you'd like to donate to our sale, please email me at stephLnunes@hotmail.com, message me on Facebook or just let me know. We will gladly come pick our donations from your home if you live in or around Solano county or Napa county.

That is SO cool!! I love when donations come from unexpected places like that. It's a beautiful thing watching God work to bring your baby home, isn't it?

Thanks for the info on the Chick-Fil-A fundraiser. I think we'll be doing that this spring! Also, a garage sale is a great idea! We did one last summer and raised over $1,000! I have boxes and boxes of stuff in our garage right now for our next one, too. Praying for you guys! :)

Oh and if you ever want to chat, my email is lindseycrock@gmail.com.

Hi! I just saw your comment on my blog! Thanks for writing me! I'll be praying for you guys and checking in on your blog to see how far you are. We are adopting from Uganda, so I'm sure the timeline will be a little bit different, but in some ways similar.
blessings,
