Concert Totals and Thank Yous

Saying "thank you" just doesn't seem to cover what we want to say about Saturday night.  So many people worked so hard to make things fall into place - and you all are a part of our little guy's journey home. As Van said, you are running the race with us!

We hope you were touched, moved, and blessed by the amazing music from Shelly, Christa, and Nicole.   As I write this, I can't even think of words to explain how beautiful their music is and especially how beautiful they were performing it live. Blew.me.away.  And the band - Mike, Pat, Kevin, Houston, Paige.  You guys are phenomenal.  As I sat in the front row, I was just totally taken back (and in tears a good bit of the time) by the beauty of the music, the lyrics, and by a God who would orchestrate it all.

Several people asked about the video we showed, so here it is, friends.   Watch it again.  With Kleenex.


And, without further ado, we are so excited and thrilled to share with you that 


approx. 280 were in attendance

and

$5,623 was donated to our adoption!!


plus

46 T-shirts were sold = $690!!

which means

$6,313 was the total!!!

Wow, friends!!!  Thank you, Lord!!

We have pictures coming soon!  
Check back for that later this week.


Some particular people we wanted to thank:
