update!




there has been a small change of plans. instead of leaving this thursday, we will be leaving next thursday (feb 4). all though we are anxious to get there as soon as we can, we are excited to have another week to collect more supplies. we have been so grateful for those of you who have donated so far, it warms our hearts. every time we open the door, often to find someone we don't even know... giving of themselves to help those in need, it feels like a little miracle. the spirit of service has filled our home. it feels different and i really really love it. no wonder we are taught to be charitable! i mean, it's invigorating. we feel so much energy and motivation by seeing other people's willingness to give. it's actually been a delightful surprise, i didn't really think of this process of collecting everything to be as beautiful as it is. we wish we could spend more time getting to know all of these selfless hearts. so thankyou. thankyou. thankyou.

i know there are many of you who just haven't had enough time to gather as much as you wanted so again, here is your chance! we are asking that all donations be dropped off by wednesday night (feb 3) or thursday day (feb 4).

our biggest priorities are:
children's tylenol (pills)
infant tylenol (liquid)
baby powered formula

still collecting:
bulk advil (ibuprofen)
bulk tylenol (acetaminophen)
prenatal pills
children's vitamins

for questions just email, call or text.

I was at Target today and wanted to buy the entire shelf of formula, vitamins, medicine. But, I guess every little bit helps, right? We'll come by to bring you our donations soon.

I love that photo.

i hope you guys get everything you need.

isn't it wonderful how God brings people together for a common purpose like this one? such a blessing to get to see his hand at work through the hands of his people.

i'm so excited for you guys and this opportunity. you guys are going to do such a great work.

oh...and not to change the subject to something more shallow, but thank you for your sweet comments on my blog the other day. i think it's so cool that we had things in common on our "when i grow up" lists and i also really valued your comment about liking the outfits i put together. coming from someone like you who has such a great sense of style and taste, it meant a lot. i was definitely flattered :).

i hope you have a great day today and fit in all the little last minute details i'm sure you have to get done before leaving.

you guys are in my prayers!
