Jude says "THANK YOU"!!

We DID it!! I just received an email from Kate at LWB and she said the new total for the A/C fund for Gutian is $1055!! INCREDIBLE!! Enough for all four of the units the orphanage director requested! With $15 to spare 😉 Thank you to all of you, from the bottom of my heart. I can’t tell you what it means to me to know my little guy is going to sleep a little more comfortably until I can come for him. And even more important is that ALL the children will rest easier this summer, thanks to YOU!! What an incredible effort, I am typing with a smile plastered to my face :) You guys ROCK!!! Chris and I donated (of course!) but had a little bit extra $ set aside in case we needed to add a bit to completely fund the effort. But I felt lead to just wait and see what God wanted to do! And through your generosity, He is going to provide one MUCH more comfortable summer to a lot of babies at Gutian :)
Here is a copy of the email I recieved from Kate just a little while ago:
“Hi Stephanie,
I was just going over the donations and it looks like we have $1055!!!! That is enough for the four units. Would you like me to get Helen, one of our facilitators in China, started with the order? Any additional $$ or donations could be used for toys or whatever you would like. This group of people really came through for the children :o) Let me know what you would like me to do.

    God says, “Ask and ye shall receive” I hope that Jude is able to come home very soon!

  4. That is just awesome – after having been in China in the early summer – yikes – I can’t imagine what the height of summer must be like. What a blessing!!
