A Huge Blessing!
Yesterday we got up to find a large donation towards our adoption. I can't tell you how excited we were and how much it blessed us!! Although we already sent them a personal thank you, we wanted to publicly thank them and allow all to share in this blessing! Some of you who follow New Day's website may remember them. They are Caleb and Christy Phillips. They were recent volunteers to New Day who were here about 6 months, leaving this past February. Caleb worked in volunteer services and Christy worked full-time for the foster home in the preschool. They both blessed so many while they were here in countless ways. In our Sunday morning meetings, Caleb often took turns teaching, readily volunteering. Christy really blessed us by teaching the children's portion of our meeting each week. They were also very involved in reaching out to the local Chinese in our community who were in need of assistance. I'm sure there were plenty of other things they did that I haven't named. Basically folks, they were just a huge blessing to the local Chinese of village and to all of us foreigners! We miss them so much! They have been called to full-time work on the field and had returned to get things in order and seek their next assignment. Knowing they are also raising their own support for their work, well......it just blesses us so much more. This is a couple who also have to raise funds and see fit to bless us as well! It really speaks volumes to us and to so many others! I also have to tell you that they have a wonderful idea of another way to help out our adoption in an even bigger way, however, we are not allowed to yet share that until certain permissions are given to proceed. I will let you know as soon as I can though! A big thank you and hugs to them as they prepare for their next assignment!!
