OH Benefit Pics.....Plus Last Day of Store Sale

First, today is the last day of our 20% off sale in the OH Store. We are making room for new spring items, plus we are giving away 3 grants totally $1000 tomorrow to the top 3 affiliate sellers. Don't forget to support those who are adopting and traveling on missions!! Today is the last day of the sale and grant contest.

Second, Check out our OH Spring Benefit pics!! Special thanks to JenMPhotography for coming and shooting our event for us! I can't tell you how blessed I was by this event! We have such an AMAZING event committee! I must give special thanks to Elizabeth Claybaker and the WHOLE event committee for planning and organizing such a great event this year!! They take sooo much off of my plate and I am forever grateful and blessed! I must also thank Chuck and Carrie Cecil for Chairing this year's event.....and doing such an amazing job at it!! I also must thank the Flores Family and Bryan and Erika White for coming to share their amazing stories.  I must also thank Kristi Neumann for coming and singing her AMAZING song she wrote for those adopting. It is the song you all hear on our waiting children site. We were all blessed to hear it in person at our event!! I also must thank the MANY people and businesses (over 100) that donated to our silent auction this year. It was a huge success and we thank you greatly!! And a special thanks to EVERYONE who came and/or supported OH this year!! It means a world of difference for many children in need in America and across the globe.

Lastly, these two couples win the prize (if there was one) for coming the farthest. They drove in from Alabama to be at the OH Benefit Dinner this year. Thanks for coming so far Bice and Frye families!! It was a pleasure meeting you!!

Lastly, a Praise Report!!

In my last post I asked for a family to step up to help a young girl from the Ukraine come to America for 4 weeks this summer. I heard from many who were praying and inquiring about it and many who were forwarding our Speak Up email that I sent out about it. Well.....that very first day someone stepped up to the call and are in the process of the paperwork right now!! I LOVE seeing all of you Ordinary Heroes fast at work to help those in need out there without talking yourselves out of it. You will truly change the lives of children in need in this generation and for generations to come. Pray for the family that is trying to bring this little one over and that they get the paperwork and finances to bring this to completion. THANK YOU all for passing along our Speak Up emails. It truly does make a difference in the lives of these children.  I just got word of a little boy in need of adoption in the US which i will post more on once I get the info. Believing for a home for him.
