Can You Believe It?

Seriously guys.  The love you guys show and the encouragement you extend toward the orphan and those who care for them leaves me speechless, humbled and oh-so-teary!  I have some joyful reporting to do and a new update to the car fund for Emma and Josh.


As most of you know I put out a plea for people around the world to join in helping Emma and Josh get a “new” car!  And in no time gifts of all sizes from orphan-lovin’ friends around the world began to pour in!  You guys are so stinkin’ incredible I’m giggling as I type!  Our hearts lifted in praise at how well you love!  Dw would call and say, “Guess what? Another gift!”

Then a few days ago he brought home a stack of envelopes from the International Voice of the Orphan mailbox and told me I should open them!  My heart was bursting with joy!  I just knew that I knew that I knew that God was going to do it!

And here we are precious friends

Drum roll please….

The grand total is:    $35,002!!

Can you believe it?? 

That $2.00 over the goal  just makes me smile – almost like a punctuation point from the Lord!  God has been astoundingly faithful as so many of you put your love in action and forever will be part of purchasing a car for some orphan-serving missionaries in Uganda!  You heard of the need and were moved to action becoming a part of a beautiful answered prayer – no doubt, a story for Emmy and Josh’s Memorial Box!!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of all our hearts!  You guys are the best!

If someone has enough money to live well

and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion–

how can God’s love be in that person?   

I John 3:17

And here’s a little Lincoln-love because it was his most spectacular arrival that God used to set in motion all your hearts! Besides he’s pretty darn adorable!


PS  Please pray for wisdom as Josh now searches for the perfect car for them!

  1. Glory Hallelujah… what an Awesome God. And what a beautiful Lincoln 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

  2. Amazing they got that much to buy a car with. I am slow on the draw to get money to them. We’ve had car issues at our house too. Megan’s car quit working. She’s got mine so she can get to work, etc. I have a new to me car that’s so pretty on the inside that I feel like I don’t deserve it. God blessed us well that day. Praying she can get $$ from her Subara so she can pay off car and car repair bill. Always some thing but God’s in the midst of it! Lincoln is so adorable! Glad you were there to help out. Hugs!
