“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:19
God once again proved His faithfulness to us through His people. The Zbinden/Crawford Mission Support Auction was above and beyond what we could have asked or imagined. Our church family, and even those outside the church, donated generously of items and time as God put everything together. Almost $5500 was raised to be split between our mission funds. To God be the glory!
While we can’t mention every name that gave or helped for we would not want to leave anyone out; I hope you will allow me to indulge in a tear-filled thank you to my Dad. He traveled from house to house as our church family called him with items to pick up…loading them and then unloading them at the auction barn. He placed ads in the newspapers. I have since learned that he is quite the spokesman for us. Telling whoever he comes in contact with about our plans. His coffee buddies give him money every now and then to give towards our fund. God gave him the desire to put this auction together and he followed through knowing that the raising of funds will take his daughter far away to another continent. That is a father’s love and I love him even more deeply for it.
|And the auction’s on…

Words do not adequately express the thankfulness in our hearts to everyone involved. Doug and I cannot even talk about it without tears in our eyes. We are so blessed with a church family and friends that love and support us. May God bless each of you in a special way for your faithfulness.
