Stepping out!

Good Morning!!!
As much as I'd like to be able to say we are fully funded & set to go financially...I can't quite say that yet..Oh, how we knew that this life that God has pressed upon our hearts would be not be easy or comfortable..Since saying "yes" to adoption 4 1/2 years ago, our lives have dramatically changed...and it hasn't been easy or comfortable at times!! Because we are human, there are days when I long, (I mean long!!!!) for normalcy, whatever normalcy looks/feels like! Right now, in the midst of raising funds for moving our family to Ethiopia...our normal has become living in our home that really doesn't look or feel like home anymore(thank God I know where our true home is!!) raising funds, which at times feels like we are begging for your support...and, please, please never hear or read it as begging...we know that this is just part of this process & its necessary, but God has most definitely been faithful with using friends & family in our life that have shown incredible support & love for us..we are truly thankful for you! And yes, we will continue listing our needs...if you feel led to support us financially, thank you!!! If you feel led to support us in another way, thank you!! You are a vital part to our ministry & we can't thank you enough!! We've had a few people express their concern as to how we are able to move while we aren't fully funded...great question!! We are in the process of securing our plane tickets to go to Ethiopia in March...we are just waiting on a few different prices..But, we GO trusting that God knows the needs & desires of His people & we've experienced His faithfulness time & time again!! Is it scary stepping out of the boat?? YES!! Id be lying if I told you that I have no concerns about going without being fully funded, but at the same time, we fully trust in our God & we know that He is able to do far more than we could ever, we are stepping! Will YOU step with us??? Will YOU make the jump & prayerfully consider supporting 8:7 Africa & our family???

John 21:6
And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will find a catch.” So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.

be blessed.
