We are grateful and thank the many folks who helped make this yard sale a success. You are part of God’s awesome work!  Photo Credit: Alaine Callen

Even though our yard sale happened on a HOT day (106 degrees), we had lots of traffic. We also had plenty of stuff, about 12 tables full. We started at 6am and by 1:30pm everything was cleared away (thanks to several trips to the Goodwill).

The purpose of this sale was to fundraise for our trip to India. Read more about this here and here. As we shared our purpose with folks at the yard sale, many were generous.

One lady even changed her mind about what she was going to pay us. Her first thought was to give us $20 for a $9 purchase = Generous!

BUT, there’s more to this story. I took the purchase to her car and she said, “I think God is leading me to do something different. I believe He wants me to give you this.”

Imagine my shock and awe as a $100 bill was put into my hand!!!

(God speaking) “The people you live among will see how awesome is the work that I , the LORD, will do for you” (Exodus 34:10).

God did do an awesome work. We made a little over $800 at the yard sale on Saturday. . . . I KNOW that HE will provide the rest of the money that each of us needs.

Thanks, also, for being part of this awesome story about the India trip. We cannot do it alone. Our victories are your victories. Our blessings are your blessings. Thanks for your encouragement, help, donations, and prayers.
