Surprises! $5,000 Matching Grant and new pix!!!!

These two Treasures are the reason we must cast our pride aside and ask for help.

***Updated with new pix on Monday!!!!***
I had planned to write a post today with this title...and right after church the Lord changed the surprise!

We launched the "Xoom to the Finish" fundraiser on Friday, admitting we still need $17,000 to bring Kasidi and Kennah home.
We have been praising God that He will fully fund this journey. We have no idea how...but if we knew, there would be no need for faith.

And if this journey had a title, that title would be "Faith."

Faith that this precious little girl who is in need of surgery will come home...
(Kennah in April ~ look at those pink hightops!)
...faith that this precious little girl with a potentially frightening and unknown medical need will come home...
(Kasidi in April)
...and faith that God would provide everything to get them here!

So what's the surprise?
After church today a family wishing to remain anonymous told us the Lord has led them to give a $5,000 matching grant to help bring our Treasures home! $5,000! Do you know what that means? Any gift of $10 turns into $20, a gift of $50 turns into $100 and so on! We will keep the ChipIn up until May 15th.
We never know how the Lord chooses to provide, and we have been constantly blown away throughout the course of this journey! We can never forget that He loves our girls even more than we do!

If you wish to participate in the matching grant, please see the ChipIn on the top of our side bar .

Father, we praise You for your boundless provision and for those who are sensitive to Your Spirit.

GORGEOUS TREASURES! The new pictures are priceless, I know your mommy heart can't wait to hold them. Our pastor spoke about our faith in response to His grace yesterday and I kept thinking of your family, then I came home and read about your matching grant! Praying for $10,000 to be added quickly.
