As a part of our adoption fundraising, Mark and I are planning an event based on James 1:27: "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." On Saturday, December 8, with the help of several volunteers, we will be going to the home of Karen Mueller to spend the day doing several projects on her property (e.g., fence painting, landscaping, miscellaneous repairs, etc.). Each volunteer will send out several sponsorship letters to friends and family, requesting a sponsorship pledge that will go directly toward our adopt costs. The hope is that, with at least a dozen volunteers, and with each volunteer getting several sponsorships, we will be able to raise enough money to make a big dent in our adoption costs. In addition to helping us bring our child (orphan) home, we are able to help and bless a widow, thus fulfilling James 1:27!
If you're interested in volunteering or sponsoring the event, please let me know!
Thank you in advance!
