Stephanie had a great idea the other day to put up two thermometers in our living room to show the progress of fund raising towards going to Africa. This has brought the whole family into the process... The other day Kamryn brought Stephanie her piggie bank, and said, "I want to give this for Africa." Not just a little, but all of it, which was a total of $7 dollars. Bradyn also wanted to give. She gave $6 dollars and Julia also gave all of what she had which was $3 dollars. We were both humbled and grateful for the example of our daughters giving everything they had. We went out and colored in a part of the thermometer. It didn't go up much on the actual thermometer, but we know that the one in Heaven did!
Matthew 6:19-20 (NIV) "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
Please continue to pray for our family as we continue on in this new adventure!!!
