The Matching Grant Goal Has Been Met!!!

I do not know what to say! I am almost speechless! But I can say, "Look what God did!"

Praise Him!!!

And thank you to so many of you who were used by Him to helped us raise the $3500 needed for the goal but also made it possible for our grant to be maximized to $7000!

And thank you to Grace Fellowship--Micah's Hope and Lifesong! Isn't it awesome to know that even in this slumping economy and during the financial crunch of the holidays, people still care about what God values?! There are those who are not only "aware" of the plight of the fatherless and the worldwide orphan crisis, but they are willing to do something.

What does this grant total mean to us? It means we are now fully-funded for 2 adults (guess who that would be ;0) to go to China and bring Hai Hai home! So we can now focus on the $10-12 K needed to bring Zheng Zheng home.

Thanks to several precious friends and their donations, we are already $2635 on the way to Zheng Zheng!

Lifesong will still receive donations and direct the funds to our agency for those who are interested in being a part of Zheng Zheng's "homecoming." And since Lifesong is a non-profit, all these donations would be tax-deductible!

Thank you to all who have helped. Many, many that I do know and some who I do not. You all have blessed us, and we are humbled by your sacrifice.
