Both Hands

Most of you have heard about this AWESOME project we're doing in just a few weeks. Fulfilling the command given in James 1:27- "Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained."

We're AMAZED at how God has blessed already and how He continues to provide. If you haven't checked it out yet, PLEASE take just a few minutes to do so! Just click HERE. (Honestly, if you don't, this post won't make much sense).

Here's where we stand:
  • A local businessman and dear friend donated $500 towards stamps and getting the sponsorship letters sent!
  • Our team sent somewhere between 500-600 sponsorship letters (we don't have the final number as some letters are still going out).
  • Many of the needed supplies for Nora's (the Widow) have already been donated. Please pray for the remaining items that we need (mainly lumber, hardware and painting supplies
  • Covenant Transport has donated a 15 passenger van and they're paying a driver since we'll have to park a few miles away from Nora's!
  • Restaurants are already committing to donate food for the project work day!
  • Some dear friends have agreed to donate a Washer/Dryer set that is much needed!
  • Ooltewah Nursery has graciously agreed to donate plants to "spruce up" the exterior!

Here's some ways you can help us pray specifically for the project:

  • Good weather
  • Remaining supplies (as mentioned previously- lumber, hardware, painting supplies)
  • Safety
  • Sponsorships

Michelle and I truly believe (as do our boys- "faith like a child" right??) that this project will be the means by which we raise the final $20,000 needed to bring Eden home. Please pray with us! GOD CAN and WILL!

Humbled by YOUR help & prayers,

Jonathan, Michelle, Jaiden, Levi (and a precious little girl who will thank you one day!)
