The Rest of the Story....

I'm completely blown away this morning.

My eyes keep leaking tears.

Look at my donation list.

Yesterday there were 115 names on it.

Today....

175

ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE NAMES!!

We received $1225.10  in donations yesterday for a total of $9752.10 since this Giveaway started!!

And you want to know the coolest part... most of the donations yesterday came from CHILDREN.

I teach at a Homeschool Co-op.  I teach both History and Creative Writing to five different classes of the best students in this entire country.  Last week I shared with all five of my classes about Spencer and the other Passed Over Babes.   I told them that I would be bringing in a bucket this week if any of them would like to make a donation. 

I didn't know what to expect.  I figured some of them would give but most of them would forget. 

They blew me away.  Not only did they give, but when their brothers and sisters started walking into my class to drop money into the bucket and when children not even in my classes handed me envelopes in the halls and when the Moms came in to write checks and when one child brought an envelope filled with donations from members of her church and when another child brought in an envelope with well over one hundred dollars from her family.... I had a hard time keeping it together.


And the most precious part... each gift was accompanied by a whisper and desire.  They were praying for Spencer.  Praying for a family.  Praying for the other babes.  Longing for families for them.  Whispered prayers to the throne.    I heard over and over and over again whispered longings that God would provide a family for the babes.  

For those who have been looking at the Passed Over Babes and feeling the Lord banging on your door - you have just had the prayers of a whole host of kids poured out on top of your heads.  You are NOT alone.  You are NOT without support.

I had the privilege last night of entering in all the donations for Spencer and some of the other Passed Over Babes.

When I went to bed none of the last seven had jumped the $1,000.00 wall.  None were even in the $900.00 range.  I told Rob I didn't think we were going to have any more jump.  It was asking too much.  But I was so content with what we had accomplished in this Giveaway.  MOST of the babes barely had any money in their accounts when we started and when I crawled into bed... all of them had at least $700.00.  That made me smile.

THIS MORNING....

I was blown away again!!

MARK JUMPED THE WALL!!



GO MARK!!  Put on a happy face little man... You are being LOVED from afar!!

And Danila, Nikita and Dimtry....

They all moved WITHIN ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS OF JUMPING THAT WALL!!

        

Goodness me it didn't end there....

Arina jumped to the $800 level too!!


Do you understand why my eyes are leaking tears?  I am just blown away this morning.

God is Good.

And again yesterday I received another e-mail from another family.... Please Pray for these babes.  The obstacles to get some of them are HUGE.  Some have families who WANT them but the barriers are high and seemingly insurmountable.

Please storm heaven for these babes and the families who are wrestling with all the reasons why getting them would be insane, impractical, ridiculous and outrageous.  Please storm heaven that God would calm the fears as He calls out His people to go rescue the lost and forsaken.  Join your prayers with the prayers of all my sweet students who are praying and longing to hear the 'rest of the story' for each of the babes.


TODAY IS THE LAST DAY YOU CAN GIVE TO THESE BABES.

Last call for the Passed Over Babes!!

Will you give???  Join in the fun??  It has been an amazingly wild ride!!

I can't wait for the Rest of the Story!!

  6. I donated on Patti's, and commented there. I gave to 5 of these that are precious in the eyes of Jesus: Spencer, Brent, Robyn, Dimtry, and Yegor.

    This is my Christmas, to be able to give to help these children find families.

  15. I have to admit that each time I look at all those faces, I always stare the longest at Yegor. How is he a passed over Babe with that sweet little face? So I was super excited when I clicked and saw that he only needed $70 to jump the wall! Done. Now someone just needs to go get him (and all the other babies)
    Thank-you for being their voice Julia.

  18. Slava Bogu! Never discount anyone in doing great works for the kingdom!
    I don't see my name on the wall (Which is FINE BTW) but I did give to Danila and Paul on the 10th. Just want to be sure you get your people count correct :)

  19. I just had a peek on the Angel Tree Wall... and this is just unbelievable! Look at Dmitry and Yegor! And look at our Arina girl!!

    I suppose I have told you before, but I am so impressed and thankful for what you have done for these children. Without Debbie and you campaigning for them, I am certain their numbers would be very, very different. What a wonderful Christmas surprise! :)
