"To Him who is able to do immeasurably more than I can ask or imagine. . . ."

Our grand total is $1856!!!!! Praise the LORD! I was praying fervantly to not only meet our goal, but to exceed it so that AHOPE would have enough money to feed the children for a full week AND cover their costs for the shirts and bracelets!Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Again, I am in awe of the God that we serve and of His servants who give sacrificially and willingly. Aren't you amazed that HE allows US to be a part of HIS work in these precious lives?I will be sending an email to AHOPE later today with a listing of all of the shirt / bracelet requests! They are thrilled with you guys too! Remember to use these gifts wisely. What do I mean by that? Use them as reminders to pray. . pray for AHOPE, it's leaders and it's ministry, pray for Ethiopia as a country and for God's glory to be known, pray for the children, especially the orphans, especially those with hiv, pray for the Ethiopian leaders and believers acrosst the nation who are God's tangible hands and feet to this country and these children. Also, use the gifts to raise awareness! Post pics on your blog with a link to where others can buy them. Add an AHOPE badge to your site. Our mission strategy at church is the same thing that I pray for AHOPE. . that we will partner with them to Pray, Give, Go and Send. . .may we be a blessing to your people! Lord, may these gifts be unto you. Use them to further YOUR kingdom and share your glory!!!!

Stay tuned. . .I'll be posting details for our October project in a few hours!
