And......... Their Off!!!!

The last few days have been amazingly spectacular. Words can not express how excited we are for what God has done & continues to do around us. This morning we sent our first born off to spend the next month in Rwanda, Africa!!! Lots of packing, rearranging and weighing bags (which were still over weight). Lacey will arrive in Kigali, Rwanda at 5:00am on Saturday morning and then make a 3 hour drive to Gisenyi where she will be spending most of her time. Please continue to pray for safety as she travels over the next two days. Thank you to Alison, Tara & Elise for letting her sleep under your roof the next month. Praying that you all have some sweet moments together and that God will use you all in amazing ways & draw each of you closer to Him!!! We love you Lacey & we are SO. PROUD. OF. YOU!!!!!!!

 And..... a midst all the flurry of getting Lacey off to Africa our dear friends received HUGE NEWS and they are on their way to Africa to meet their sweet babies!!!! SO exciting to see God bringing everything together in his time. And SO SO fun to share in the joy of two people we love becoming parents for the first time!!! We can not wait to see these precious ones redeemed by a Mommy & Daddy who already love them! Please pray for Stephen & Wynne as they travel and have court on Monday July 2nd.

Wanna help Stephen & Wynne with their final expenses to get their two little's home? 

 to order a Camp+Asher shirt!! 
Adoption. what a Beautiful thing:)

God is Good! 
He is the Master of all things & we glorify Him for who He is!!!!! 
Thank you God for first adopting us!

For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, Abba! Father!" The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God. 
~Romans 8:15-16

Africa... Africa... Africa...

One of the most commonly mentioned words in our home...

Fundraising for our "Back To Africa" Mission Trip is in full swing. Our 3rd fundraising garage sale is July 6th & 7th. We are already collecting DONATED items. Please email or message me on FB if you have items BIG or small that you would like to donate. Doing summer cleaning? Have boxes to take to Goodwill, call us instead!! We also still have sweet soft blankets that you can purchase for $25 that will be donated to the baby room at the Noel Orphanage. You can Donate directly to us, to the Chip-in button on the sidebar OR for a tax-deductible donation you can donate to Visiting Orphans for the Harper Family.

In other news... Lacey leaves June 28th for Gisenyi, Rwanda. She will be gone for a full month. Please cover her in prayer as she begins to prepare. God has provided a team that she we will be able to travel with on the way over which is a huge blessing!!! Also she has her wisdom teeth out this Monday, so prayers for a quick recovery are needed. We are so excited for the new journey that God is taking our oldest child on. Prayer's for Mama while she's gone would be greatly appreciated;)
