Some of our tricks:)

FIRST—for all of you participating in the “Pad Party” project—I’m still working on emailing the pattern to all of you. So far…we’ve had probably close to 80-100 ladies respond…I’ve lost count–and that’s a GREAT thing! Here’s the dealio. We are setting the final deadline for pads to be mailed in for October 1st. We have 2 seperate ship locations to make shipping cost effective for you–so when you are completed with your project, email me and let me know where you will be shipping from–and I’ll send you the shipping address. We are SO thankful for all of you helping…and with SUCH A HUGE response–I am confident we will NOT ONLY have enough for our Korah and Wiphan students—but we will be able to do outreach to BOTH the Korah and Wiphan community!!! Just think how THIS ADDITIONAL outreach is going to bless those living in Korah and the Wiphan compound!!! THIS IS HUGE! AND WE ARE THANKFUL! (Thank you for being patient with me as I respond to the many emails and questions relating to this project…and thank you Sarah for answering the ones I can’t!)

SECOND—this week, Wiphan will be launching an amazing project that is going to BLOW YOUR MIND. It is literally keeping me up at night (when Isaac is not;-) and the more I consider the orphans of the world—the less I am concerned about the silly little problems of fairy land (aka-my life). I have food. I have shelter. I have a bed. I even have an alarm for goodness sake—and I also take all of these things for granted. OR at least I DID. Until I started working on this NEXT project. I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR THE LORD TO RAISE UP 400 FAMILIES TO JOIN ME IN ONE WEEK FOR THIS NEXT PROJECT. It will cost each of these 400 families $45…what some of us pay for a babysitter or a night out. I can’t WAIT to tell you how $45 is going to change the life of OVER 400 families. I can’t WAIT to see who those 400 families are that the Lord brings forth to join us…and make a lasting impact and literally SAVE a life! I hope to have everything ready by WEDNESDAY to share. Please pray that the Lord will prepare the hearts of 400 families to join us—for a one time gift of $45. I know the Lord can do this—and I believe He will!!! Please pray that this need is quickly met—and that in one week we can make a phone call that need has been met and the little ones and widows that live in 400 mud homes lives will be forever changed…

THIRDYou just have to see our latest tricks. NOW…for you physical therapists out there–I KNOW this is NOT how he is “supposed” to sit up…but he is doing it none-the-less and he is going from on his belly to sitting. Now…if you ever wondered exactly what hypotonia looked like…here you have it at it’s best! Richard is convinced his hypotonia is going to make him a better athlete…I told him he’d be a great gymist and Rico Suave quickly corrected me that he’d be a better golfer. Regardless…our boy is going places people;). And of course you have to see his precious wave…again:)

Hope you all had a great weekend!!! Please pray we get clearance tomorrow for surgery on Wednesday to get tubes!!! We are set for tubes on Wednesday as long as his chest is clear! Hoping and praying we get the go-ahead tomorrow!!!

Can not wait for you to tell us about the Wiphan Project. =) I think Isaac is adorable; that adorable smirk and laugh, kissable face. How do you get anything done with this added cutie-pie in your mix?!!

So excited, i heard back from our pastor’s wife that the idea sounds great and she is going to talk to me about it tonight after church. The only problem I see us having is getting them to you before Oct 1st because we might not be able to schedule it at our church and get it done beforehand. Will there be any other opportunity between Oct and Dec to send them in? Thanks!
