Live Auction

Many (many many many) have asked us, "So, when are you leaving."  or "Hey, I thought you would be gone by now!"... Let's just say we wish we knew, we had hoped to have made the move earlier in the month.  But, alas here we wait.  I liken it to the last few weeks of pregnancy when every.single.person you see asks when you're due, says you look like you're gonna pop, or wonders aloud why you haven't gone into labor yet.  Then you go home and cry, kick your cankles up on the couch, and google "how to induce labor".  

The only thing holding us back is securing the funds to purchase a vehicle to use in Haiti.  In the grand scheme of things, this is a drop in the bucket.  We know God is fully able to provide, and we're having to wait to see how He does it.  So far, people we know, family, church family, and even strangers have joined in by supporting us financially.  Each person has a role in us serving in Haiti, and we just couldn't do it without the many people who are sacrificing financially to send us.  We are grateful!
We are planning an online silent auction to raise money for the vehicle.  As donations come in, we are preparing for the auction to go LIVE, Sunday, September 23rd!  It will run through September 29th.  Some items will only be available for local pick-up, but several will be available to ship anywhere in the U.S.  We will post a link to the auction here next Sunday.

We are still working on securing some final donations, but are you curious about what's up for grabs so far?  You are!  Here's a little sneaky peek:  2 tickets to ANY home or away Arizona Cardinals game (amazing seats too!!), Bottles of wine and cookbook from Oregon's Ponzi Vineyards, Scentsy gift baskets, Adam's Blankie items, a Date Night package, sports memorabilia, Simply Been gift certificate, and more!!!

Updated to add:  Go {HERE} to view the auction, runs from September 23-29th

Oh, I feel your pain. Sometimes, I just want to crawl in a hole and refuse to go out in public so I don't have to answer the same question, over and over and over. Hang in there. It will happen soon :)
