PNO (Parent's Night Out!)

Yep you read it right! If you are a parent in the Dayton area and simply need a night out on the town here is the answer! We are once again partnering with the Garman family to raise money to bring our sweet babes home! On Friday night, December 17, 2010 from 6:00-11:00 P.M. you can drop your children off at Apex Community Church and have yourself a date! There will be games, snacks, movies, and fun for all! There is a suggested donation of 10 dollars per child and we will take all ages. We only ask that you please let us know how many children you'll be dropping off and the age of the children so that we can plan appropriately.

There are several things that we covet your prayers for as we prepare!
1. VOLUNTEERS! Yes, we have people that have volunteered to help us watch the kiddos (background checks through the church are already done as to ease concerns). Please pray that the volunteers are all able to make it and that we will have enough volunteers to watch over the amount of children we have! If you are someone that would like to volunteer please let us know!
2. That children would come!
3. That we would be very organized in the process as far as registration, volunteers, etc.
4. ENERGY!! Pray that we have lots of energy to watch the children that God brings in the doors!

You may be wondering how much more funding Josh and I have left to do for the adoption. Basically, our next payment for the adoption will be approximately 6,000 dollars. After that we will have to pay travel expenses to Ethiopa twice. This is averaging approximately 10,000 dollars as of right now. Josh and I are working very hard at saving as much money as possible to fund our adoption and bring our child home. We know that God will provide in amazing ways and have DEFINITELY already seen that happen! Thank you so much for partnering with us in whatever way you can whether through donations or through prayer! God is using you in a mighty way.
