Matching Grant!!!

God is so faithful.

We knew when we committed to international adoption that we were stepping into a great expense. But when you know God is calling you to follow Him, you also must trust that He will supply what is required.

In this we have put our trust through this process.

God has been very faithful to bless so many of our efforts in this cause. Many of you have helped us with bake sales and a yard sale. Many others have bought t-shirts, jewelery, Belk tickets, and Mary Kay. God has used several people to bless us with money donations.

We need just a little more than $7000 to bring Hai Hai home. This is something to praise God about! He has helped us save/raise almost $19,000!!! He is AWESOME!!!

We are so thankful that we have now received a MATCHING GRANT!!! Grace Fellowship-Micah's Hope has blessed us with a $3500 matching grant, and it is being overseen by Lifesong for Orphans.

For every dollar our family and friends donate in our name to Lifesong for Orphans, they will match it up to $3500. That means we have the potential of receiving $7000! (Remember how much we need? Isn't God amazingly good???!!!)

If you would like to help bring Hai Hai home, you can contribute a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE gift that will then be doubled!!! Please preference the donation by designating it "Hixon #1525 adoption."

Please continue praying for us and for Hai Hai!
