RAIN or SHINE – Last Chance for Muffins!!!!!

IMG_6835

Hey Everybody!!!  Well last Monday was another great success!! We sold all our muffins and raised over $400!!!!  Amazing isn’t it?  God gives and idea to two young boys excited about adopting brothers and/or sisters.  Then He uses all of you to provide support, encouragement, and prayers.  Just from warm, homemade muffins!  God works in many ways and many of them are not obvious to us.  May we all see the little ways that God is working in our lives each day.

This Monday, May 22nd, is our last Muffin Monday for this year!

Since the last Monday in May is Memorial Day and many of you are out of town, hosting family, or sleeping in since there isn’t any work or school, we have found that we don’t see many of you on Memorial Day.  Therefore, tomorrow will be the last Monday that we are selling muffins in 2017.  No matter the weather we’ll be out selling our muffins and would really enjoy seeing you too!  Last year we sold out in the pouring rain so let’s see if we can do it again!!!  There will be an awning so your muffins will stay warm & dry! 😉

Muffin Flavors for May 22nd

Coffee Cake

Blueberry

Vanilla with Cinnamon Crumb Topping

Pancake and Sausage with Maple Syrup

Honey Cinnamon

Apple Pie

Nutella

Salted Caramel

Chocolate Vanilla Swirl with Chocolate Chips

WHEW!! That’s a LOT of flavors! Yep, we’re bringing out all we have for you!!! Some extra tidbits you should know about our muffins.  The eggs we use to make our muffins are all local and all the proceeds of our purchasing them went to support Child Evangelism Fellowship in NE Wyoming.  We made our Honey Cinnamon Muffins with local honey from Tongue River Honey.  See, buying our muffins has an impact in many areas! You are supporting our adoptions, local ministry, and local business’s, so come on down one more time (or maybe even for the first time) tomorrow morning and get some warm, fresh baked muffins!

Muffin Mondays in May!!!

IMG_5193We are so excited to start Muffin Mondays again!!!

We have such a great time seeing all of you each year and seeing new faces too!  The support and encouragement we have received from all of you as been priceless to each of us.  Thank you for caring so much for our family and for the orphans who need forever families!!!!  This year we have a precious, new little face for you to meet (if you haven’t already ;-))  As always none of our events are done in our own strength and wouldn’t happen if we didn’t have so much love and support from our friends and family!!!  Since we do have an extra little helper this year, we have gotten extra help from dear friends in getting your muffins “Fresh Baked and Served Warm” for you.  All of the muffins were also made with local eggs that were donated by a precious friend.  You can buy as many or as few as you would like for a donation, we do not have prices.  As always, you can pre-order and we will have them warm and ready for you to pick up.  With our Haiti adoption moving an entire year faster than we expected we have a lot of saving and fundraising to do!! So please come see us starting this Monday, Aaron will have his smile on and be ready to see you!

Now for the important part…

ADOPTION SPECIAL ALERT

We have received the call from our agency that we have been waiting for…

“she has chosen your family.”

Our family has been chosen by a birth mother to be the forever family for her baby boy!!  We are so very excited and yet somewhat reserved; as many of you know in adoption nothing is for certain until the paperwork is completed and your child is home with you.  That said, we are beginning the tentative travel plans, choosing a name (Yay!), and soon we’ll start getting out all the baby goodies (so cute!)!!  We have already sent a letter to the birth mom and look forward to how God will shape our relationship with her, she too is forever a part of our family.

You know, it is hard to believe that after 3 years of prayer, research, paperwork, home studies, fingerprints, updates, fundraisers, and having our family profile shown to approximately 20 mothers (or more) we will be going to pick up our new son this summer!!

Please keep this mother in your prayers; may she come to know Jesus as her Savior through this situation, to be healthy throughout the pregnancy, and for the Lord’s strength and love to carry her through such a difficult time.  Also, be praying for this baby boy to be healthy!

A crib to hold a special little one soon!
