Have I mentioned the rocker who brings in the most donations will win a BIG prize? ;)
All donations are due November 20th!




Hear ye Hear ye!

Come one come all to some ROCKIN' FUN for JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What: Church-wide Game/Domino Night and Rockathon for Special Needs orphans in China!

Where? Clearview Baptist Church (Pinson, Alabama)

When: Friday, November 20, 2009
6:00 p.m.

What to bring: Bring your favorite crock pot of soup or chili and a dessert! Also bring your favorite board game and dominos! We will begin "rocking" at 6:00 and dinner will be at 6:30. The rocking will continue on throughout our night of fun and games!

Why: We are raising money to buy rocking chairs and to help fund the expansion of New Day Foster Home, a home for special needs orphans. We all know how babies love to be rocked, and how much we LOVE to rock babies! This is not a custom in China, and the workers at New Day want to begin this tradition in their orphanage. New Day is located in Beijing, China and is currently in the process of opening a new orphanage in Southern China. There is a great need for help for the thousands of special need orphans in this area. Our new son Kevin is currently residing at New Day!

Sponsors: Are you interested in rocking? Each person who rocks will try to get as many sponsors as possible for their assigned time-slot to rock. Rockers will rock at 15 minute intervals. (We don't want anybody "chair-sick"! ;) Rockers may get sponsors to donate each minute they rock or a one time donation. All proceeds will go to New Day for rocking chairs and their new facility. There will be a FABULOUS prize for the person who brings in the most donations for New Day!!!!!!

If you want to be a rocker, email me (flipflopsrus@windstream.net) and I will send you the sponsor guide and information. And if you just want to make a donation to the Rockathon, I'll give you that info too! ;)

ROCK ON!!!!!!!! ;)

Oh my goodness.
Looking at pictures of your little man brings tears to my eyes.
God is so good. We are just trusting Him for the direction He wants us to go, as our hearts are open to any child He has for us! Jacob told me this morning; " mom, it feels like a kid is missing".....
I know, my son.
I know.
Love you guys!!
Blessings ~
