A Great Success

Our baby bottle fundraiser is over and God has really blessed it. Last year we collected $41000 so I kept our goal low. But as week after week God's people continued to back this ministry, I carried loads of change to the bank to be counted. The cashiers were very supportive and encouraging with these weekly trips.

The grand total that I was able to turn over to the church this morning was $1,07427. That's two and a half times the amount that was raised last year!

Janet,
Thank you for your wonderful words of encouragement.
I will post more of the decorating from the baby shower. I had lots of fun and since I was a preschool photographer for five years I have lots of baby props.
The ladies of our church have a wonderful ladies ministry even though we are a small church. We began a new Bible study a couple weeks ago about prayer. Satan has really tried to deter me from getting the homework completed. Each time I find the house is quiet and I stop because it would be a good time something happens. Someone (often school) calls, someone visits or David will decide he wants to talk or cuddle with me. These times are so rare and fleeting I can't let them pass.
I really appreciate prayers for David, they are really needed.
Look for the shower pictures later in the week. And thanks for asking for them.
