I would love to show you some cute-sie pic of one of my adorable kids drawing a winning name out of a bowl..... but it's been a long day and... well, they are in the bed and mama won't be far behind them tonight. So I did the drawing and congrats to MANDY! You are the winner of "Adopted for Life". We actually had this book on display today at our church, along with many others that our pastor is recommending for this month.
It was a wonderful Orphan Sunday at Christ City Church! Our pastor is very passionate about adoption so it was very cool to hear vertical adoption AND horizontal adoption shared from the pulpit. Our sermon series for the month of November is titled, "Adopt(ed)". I will be sharing highlights from each week and you can hear the sermons for yourself at the website HERE. I'll share a quote from this morning and then a few pics of our table.
"When people are adopted, they want to adopt people".
It is that very truth (my adoption in Christ) that God used to begin preparing my heart for his call on us to adopt. Hopefully, I can get that from my heart to this blog one day soon.
So I had my professional photographer take pics this morning.... only I forgot to tell her that I wanted pictures of all of the tables. We had six ministries set up with displays filled with information. You could visit our welcome center and learn more about helping aged out orphans acquire life skills, how to become a foster parent, get involved with a local ministry that has recently opened an orphanage in Uganda, discuss the process of adoption with a local adoption agency, sign up to become a mentor to local pregnant moms and assist in caring for their babies AND you could purchase our adoption fundraiser shirt. Every table had lots of traffic.... and we sold a ton of shirts! Thank you to our CCC family for being so gracious to our family this morning.
The first pic is obviously our shirt table and below is our table for "Expecting a Blessing".
The Tide might not be rolling in Bama..... but who cares, we are team Esther all the way!
Hope everyone had a great Orphan Sunday! We won't stop.... till there's "no more"
