Not Giving Up

Our friends have reach a road block .. actually many of them! 
They have been encountering some MAJOR warfare!
Just about two weeks ago my sweet friend Jessica went to the ER to find out she had a slipped disk in her neck which was resting on a nerve. 
She had to have surgery which went smoothly and no permanent nerve damage.  Such a blessing!  It is extremely painful if you can only imagine and with 6 kids to care of and 4 weeks of bed rest I would feel defeated. Since then other crazy events have come up including a root canal, dog injury (slipped disk too.. CRAZY), and then their refrigerator went out. These past few months have been extremely challenging to say the least...  this family is under some major warfare. 
I do think most families would have given up and thrown in the towel but instead this family is only becoming stronger. Read more about it all here... 
Instead of them giving up on bringing home their 7th child they are clinging to this verse ... 

Ephesians 6:10-13
A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.

It should be encouraging to us all not to give up when 
we come across the more difficult times in our lives. 

So, this family needs your help! 
Even if you have never met this family, 
Christ calls us to help our brothers and sisters when they are in need. 
They are trying to raise enough money to bring home their beautiful little Ethiopian boy!

So, far they have raised $4615 which is amazing! 
But they have $5385 left to raise. 
They really need a few of you (well actually 769 of you) 
to pitch in $7 so they can reach their goal.
Seven dollars doesn't sound like much--but every $7 given really adds up.

Now, if 54 of you want to give one of these

then they can wrap this thing up just like that (how great would that be??? :-)
