Praising God for a Successful Yard/Bake Sale!

Here is a synopsis of our Yard/Bake Sale Adoption Fundraiser in pictures...enjoy!
This is what the church foyer looked like on Thursday night when we began unloading the four locations where we had been storing items...

Sabastian and Jonathan were big helpers with the loading and unloading, as well as their friend, Brandon, and several men from church...

When we finally got everything into one location, there was way more stuff than I had ever imagined--what a blessing, but what a lot of work! I'm so thankful for my Mom and some other ladies from church who helped organize on Thursday night and again on Friday morning...

This is Beckie setting up the Bake Sale...she and her husband and daughter are adopting a little boy, most likely from China, and joined us in this endeavor...

Here we are on our beautiful, sunny yard sale day! I am praising God for answering our specific prayers: nice weather and lots of buyers! In the foreground of this photo is Tiffany, one of my special friends from church who helped us on both days of the sale--she's the clothing sorter Queen!

A view of the household items...

The shoes my Mom meticulously separated and organized...

Nicole and Tiffany hard at work on the 40+ boxes of clothing we received!

Some of our buyers rummaging through the clothing boxes...some ladies were at this for hours!
-------
All told we made close to $3000 on the yard sale and $600 on the bake sale (which we shared with Beckie and her family.) God provided once again, just when we needed it...we got our home study bill on Friday and another bill on Saturday that our yard sale funds covered completely! Praise God! We continue to need our agency fee of $5500, which, if we sell all of our cookbooks, will be covered. Thanks so much for your prayers for this huge fundraiser, and know that God answered them completely!

Praising God for His bountiful blessings!
