Thanksgiving Day 6

I am so thankful for getting to attend the Reaching Hands Adoption Ministry Auction at our church tonight!  It was a great event that raised a lot of money to put towards grants for families that adopting.  And, it was so much fun!  I know I have said it several times this week, but we are so thankful to attend a church that really has a heart for adoption!

This event and the forum (The Church, The Bible, and The Orphan) that our church had last night were both absolutely AMAZING!  I really wish that each and every one of you who are reading this blog post could have heard the forum last night and could have attended the auction tonight.  The forum was really, really great!  And, it was such a blessing to hear the hearts of the men and women who spoke.  I pray that others will be called to care for the orphan in some way or another (adopt, foster, give, volunteer, etc.) after hearing what the forum members had to say.  The auction was such a great time to see so many people come together to raise money for this amazing ministry whose goal is to care for the orphan!  The auction raised thousands and thousands of dollars for the ministry that will be used for grants for families adopting.  It was a great success!  And, I am so thankful that we were able to attend!

This has been a really great week of celebrating Orphan Sunday (Week) and so much has confirmed to us over and over and OVER again that God has called us to adopt!  We are so grateful for this week!

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
