Garage Sale and more!

We had another busy week at our house.  Tuesday we found out that our file had been sent electronically to the embassy in Guangzhou, China and then by Friday our Article 5 had been completed a step that normally takes two weeks.   God has been working on some miracles this week!  We are officially waiting for TA (travel approval) from China.  We hope that we will travel in the next 3-4 weeks as the embassy is closing for two weeks in July to move.  If we do not make it before the move, it will make it more difficult to get Mason's surgery done yet this summer.  We have been denied by five grant foundations, but we still have several grants that we are waiting to hear from.   

We also had a two day garage sale at our church which was a huge success (thank you God!).  We could not have done it without the help of several church members Angie, Dan, Ray, Adele, my grandparents, my parents and our kids.  We were blessed with so many donations!!  The first day we made $220 which was good for our little town of Sibley which only has a post office.  The second day was going so slow... I was a bit worried, but started praying and God sent the people. We went on to make another $530.  We were so amazed and all the praise goes to God.
