21 Day Countdown-Fundraising Friday

Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that

we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Ephesians 3:20

 

 

It seems like I just wrote a day ago about the events of the past week. And here we are with a new week.  Each week seems to be flying by.  The days have been full of normal, daily life followed by a lot of fundraising stuff squeezed in where I can (unfortunately it is usually in the late evening, early morning most days).

We continue to be blessed by friends, family and once again strangers!  We are blown away by the love and support.  And reminded daily that this is a story that only God could write!!!  We are blessed by HIS GOODNESS and EVERLASTING LOVE in bringing the right people into our lives!

So for the fundraising efforts:

The spaghetti dinner is still an work in progress.  There are many calls out, but it has been a little difficult to get places to totally commit.  Please pray that this part will come about this next week.

Baskets are starting to be made (there are a few people that even told us they had them finished or nearly finished this week).  So excited by this!!  As of yet we do not have any baskets in hand, but are excited to hear that there are some being made, and worked on!  If you still want to help in this area, we would love your help.  The more baskets, the more opportunities for everyone to come away with fun items from this event.  We would love to have lots of baskets in every price range, so that many people can feel like winners=).

T-shirts logos were taken to the printer yesterday afternoon.  So that is a great piece done.  The design…is still being tweaked. We are still trying to make it universal, wearable, and yet stand out so that people take notice of the CF message.  A MUCH GREATER TASK THAN EXPECTED!!  But hopefully in the next few days that will be complete.

Bake Sale is being headed up by one of the sweet boys in our sweet homeschool community.  He is amazing and we have been blessed by his efforts to serve in this manner.  He is trying to get items for the bake sale, organizing the helpers for the night and making signs!  Amazing!  You can contact him with your intended donation at michellemyers@cox.net .

iPad give-away is currently going on through the blog.  Please buy a $5 ticket and share the link with everyone you can think of.  Excited to see how this turns out.  Even more excited to be able to give the iPad2 to someone we know…we might drool over your shoulder though.=)

Getting the word out this continues to be one of the main issues.  All of these efforts will have limited effect unless we get a great turn out on the night of the event!  We were blessed by a friend of a friend this week by having her send out our information to her media contacts.  Amazing!  (This is what I mean when I say that this is a story that only God could write.  Others telling others about our story and this fundraiser, spreads the message well.  It is also an example of why we must tell others about Christ’s saving power.  We may be able to tell one or two people, but when they tell one or two..the message is magnified ten fold of HIS LOVE.)  Please continue to share both messages with others=).

Prayer We are still putting in some pretty long hours.  Pray for strength, endurance and wisdom.  As I was reminded this week, God knows ALL OF OUR NEEDS before we even ask!!  I LOVE THAT!  It doesn’t matter if it is to find lost keys, heal a sick one, or to share His love through a fundraiser.  HE KNOWS!!  I am thankful for that.   A specific request for us, Shiloh is sick today.  Every cold in our family raises the stress level to a 9 knowing that if Rachel gets it…the work load dramatically increases in efforts to get her through a cold, not to mention the additional stress of watching her struggle for breath at times.  Please pray an extra protection for her from this cold.  We know that GOD IS ABLE!!

Thank you again for your prayers and help.  IT HAS BEEN AMAZING!  God is good, and it is awesome to watch this story unfold of people’s willingness to help.

But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 I pray this prayer for Rachel and others that struggle with CF.  I pray that this would first occur in the spiritual sense, but also in the physical sense someday too…run and be able to breathe easy because of God’s loving mercy and your help.  Thank you.

Ready to tackle CF one step and breath at a time!!!
