So, today was a FUN day when Mr. FedEx arrived with our airline tickets! :) YIPPPEEE :) I can't believe we are at this point FINALLY! :)
The Envelope :)
JEREMIAH'S Ticket home!!!!!!! :)
It feels so good to have tickets in HAND! We leave here on June 4th and drive 3 hours away where another asian mama has graciously offered to allow us to park our van at her home that is close to DFW Airport! WOOHOO save a bit of money! She has offered to drop us at the airport, and if schedule allows she can pick us up too, that remains to be seen. Anyway it is such a huge blessing! :) We fly out the evening of Friday June 4th. We will then leave LAX early am on Saturday and arriave in Taiwan early am on Sunday June 6th! Take a train down to Jeremiah's town and then Monday June 7th Taiwan time (Sunday june 6th here at 9:30 pm) we will meet our son and the ones ove rthe orphanage and reporters and share our stories and all :) We will stay at the Tayih Landis in his town and then day after we get him we will travel to Taipei and stay at the YMCA there to take care of the business that has to happen there! I can't believe that we are down to needing hotel costs, train tickets, cab fares, Jeremiah's $400 visa fee, food, and misc.!!!! God is so amazing!
Fundraising as become my middle name! lol Currently I am working on the last batch or leg quarters for tomorow's plate sale, in the am I will do the beans and the corn on cob and all :) Saturday we have a booth at a local festival and have been blessed with some donations of things to sell! :) We are working on a Big Rummage Sale/Hot Dog sale if we cna get some big items donated to sell at rummage sale and get a location :) We are also working on a Bunco Night Fundraiser and are praying that can work out and we can get a buidling to do that! PRAYING that both of these bring in some funds :) We have our virtual baby shower that so far has not seemed to get much intersest but we are praying. I have a couple of Pampered Chef items donated for a small giveaway that I hope to do soon. There are several places doing online fundraisers for us and givng 20 percent of all sales that say for Jeremiah! Praying that does something. I REFUSE to give into fear! MY GOD IS ABLE! I CAN'T wait to see Him show off! I was asked on facebook, what happens if you dont raise enough money. I said THAT IS NOT AN OPTION, and it is NOT going to happen ...MY GOD IS ABLE!
Jeremiah my sweet frogie boy, we love you soooooo much! We are coming as soona s we can! We are working soo hard to raise all the money we need to come and bring you HOME where you belong forever! :) Hang on tight and while you wait, catch my kisses in the wind! :)
