It's Grant Give Away Time......WOO HOO!!
Just as the boy whom I met in the above picture is running with pure joy, that is what I feel like as I run forward with pure joy to bring good news. I'm reminded of Romans 10:15~ How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.
It is my pure delight to announce that our t shirt fundraiser for the month of November was a raging success!! It totally amazes me what was accomplished in just one month. Thanks to all of you supporting these adoptive families, we are able to bless them with our profits. We are thrilled to offer a few matching grants from OH to make it even sweeter!
Our top 3 t shirt sellers who all receive matching grants are..........
