Crazy Love

This post is in response to Linny's blog. My first post is really long and ended up being out tithing, you can read it here if you'd like.A little about us: We attend In Focus Church and have been members for only a short time, but we are quickly making it home. (We moved from a very big church to a smaller church in the same town.) We do tithe, and we are excited to be giving God what is really already His. I am getting to know the middle school girls at our church as I help as a small group leader. They are such a delight and I pray that they will love Jesus as much as I do now as an adult and as much as I wish I had when I was their age. Our church has a brand new ministry to bring awareness about orphans and adoption that my husband and I are hoping to be a vital part of, it's kick off is actually this Sunday! We are raising money for our adoption of a child that we know God has hand picked for us in Ethiopia. We know God will provide what He has called us to! Any money donated to us will be used to pay for the adoption. Here is a list of the estimated costs.You can email me any questions at ss.scrappers@gmail.com

We are starting our adoption process in Ethiopia too. I got your blog from Hyperactive Lu. I would love to email with you. I have two blogs. 1 thepirklehome.blogspot.com, which I hardly ever post, but did post a few things not too long ago about adoption and the church if you want to read. Then the other I just started called addingtothepirkles.blogspot.com. Hope to hear from you, and I can't wait to hear about your Church fundraiser
