Hats and more Hats!!

Last week I asked for donations of Hats for Liberia! Well, needless to say, over 300 hats! Mark is wondering how in the world we will get these all there! I most likely will repack, since "Bertha" the suitcase is too heavy. I have received 2 bags of fun stuff for the orphanage! Thank You so much! We have received some cash donations also.

Wowza! Hats, Hats and more Hats!

Yesterday we had an anwered prayer when we read we only have to be in Liberia for 5 days now! Whew, not 10 days like we thought! Mark & I are so thankful for that! Leaving the 4 kids at home, is going to be hard on some of the kids and not to mention Mark and myself! I think Grandpa and Grandma will be relieved also! We are waiting for word to buy the tickets yet! Ugh! It will be in the next 3 weeks. There is some Embassy appointments that are taking place in Liberia!

So, I sent Mark to the Black Hills to go snowmobiling with his brother and nephew! I talked to Mark yesterday afternoon, it was 17 degrees, and here it was -7! Burr, I am sick of the cold!

Psalm 126:3
The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.

Mark 9: 36-37
He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them, Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.

We have been so blessed on this journey of adoption, and we praise and thank God daily for the direction He has been leading us!

Have a warm weekend!
