It's all said and done....

The checks for the Rockathon just seemed to pour in daily, well after the rocking was over. Amazing! I think the last of the donations has come in (maybe!) and our grand total is.....


That is nothing but the hand of GOD! Oh when I think of the sacrifices you have all made on behalf of Kenneth and those orphans yet to come to New Day South. Bless you all abundantly.

And the checks are IN THE MAIL! Finally! (Sorry for the delay in that, guys. I know it's nice to have a check cleared promptly.)

I wish we could do a Rockathon more than once a year! It is just so fun! And isn't it EPHESIANS 3:20 that God more than doubled the amount from last year????????? Thank you Jesus! That was totally unexpected. That was totally HIM!

Twister provides a great opportunity to take a picture of the back of the Rockathon shirts!

We love to wear ours! Thank you all so much for ordering shirts....just from the shirt sales we raised 150.00 for New Day! Woo hoo! (Your shirts are coming, Monica and LM! And Doug & Janice too! :) This was our first time to do t-shirts. I learned a lot! (The shirts are no longer available, but save up for next year! :)

Thanks again to EVERYONE, especially Agape Baptist Church and Pastor Chase Thompson for hosting us! YOU ROCK!

Laine, I'm SO excited at what God has done in all of this! I'm praying next year He'll double this year or more! It looks like it's not all said and done. Looks like some are still planning on giving! Yay God! I saw some of your boys at the Clay parade today! Love you,

Wow! I can't believe it's been so long since I've been to your blog! I'm so happy the Rock-a-thon went well and so sad that we didn't get to participate--maybe next year. I'm gonna have to get back in the habit of looking here more often--your posts are so inspiring! Blessings!
