Grant Writing

Jasper Speaks:

So we have been grant writing the last couple of weeks,. Not writing grants themselves but applying for all kinds of adoption grants. With each one it seems that the information is both the same and different. Just when you think you have it figured out another group wants the same information in a different format.

We are so grateful that people feel led to help others adopt. We pray over each application we send out. We know that we will not make all of them but we pray we get enough to push us through to an obtainable goal.

The waiting can be like a typical birth but harder. We find ourselves asking what will happen if we don't get enough money. What about all those people who gave to us? How do we repay them if something falls through?

We are trusting God to provide all we need. We know He has a plan and it will all come together. We are anxiously awaiting how He will work things out. As we wait, we send out more applications, praying they will fund us enough to keep going.

Also, it is the last TWO days of our t-shirt fundraiser. We need about 29 more shirts to meet goal. So if you are reading this and want to help, here is an easy way.
