That was my singing prayer this morning and as always – God blessed us! We were able to find a travel agent that has special rates for Adoptive couples!!!! Thank you Golden Rule Travel!!!! We are saving several thousand dollars!!! Thank you Father God that you are with us and always have a plan for us! Yay God!!!!

Travel Date

Dorina Tibor bearsWe received an email yesterday that we can book our tickets!  Yay!!  We have immigration approval and our travel date!!  Yay!!!  It is only a few short weeks until we leave to meet our children! We can’t believe we are so close to meeting them!!!  We thank God daily for all that He has done on this journey!

We ask for your prayers and support.  We have found out that the return plane tickets will be more than we had anticipated.  The grant and loan applications that we have filled out have not given us any word about receiving funds from them and we are now down to the wire – literally   We have to wire $18,000 to Hungary before we leave.  We also have to pay for airline tickets for us within the next few days.  We have to have the money to live in Hungary for a number of weeks and money to bring the kids home on the plane!  We are asking for your help!  If you can help, please go to our Donate page.  We would be forever grateful and we know that God will surely bless you!

We believe that “God will supply all of our needs according to His glorious riches” and that “He who began a good work…….will complete it.”  We have been blessed by so many wonderful gifts and donations!  We thank you for your prayers and your support!  God moved our journey along faster than we had expected and we know that He has a plan to provide for the journey!  God bless you all and Merry Christmas!

Making Progress

We have been working hard on our fundraising efforts!  Tony has been busy sending out information about our Taylor Mason show!  Here is the picture of  some of the MANY letters and information he has sent out to local churches!  So excited about this event!  Tickets are now on sale!!!  Purchase your tickets at the JOY FM , Dove Christian Supply,
any Goldfingers location, Harvest Church office and online at the Harvest Church web page!  Please feel free to pass along this information if you know someone in the area!

We have our bio-metric fingerprint appointment coming up.  That means we are another step closer to bringing our kids home!  We are getting ever closer and so excited!!!

We are so thankful to God for a recent $1000 Pastoral Grant that our Social Worker and Agency helped us apply to receive.  We received the grant!!!   We need to raise all of our funds by the end of the year and every dollar counts!  Praise the Lord!!!  We have applied for another grant and will hear back from them in December.  “God will supply all of our needs!”  We trust in God!  We see His hand all along the way!  To God be the Glory!!!!

Update

We are moving right along.  Our Home Study has been finalized and our Dossier is complete except for Immigration Approval.  The Dossier is already in Hungary and in the process of being translated.  Our paperwork has arrived at Immigration and is being processed.  We are so thankful for every step that God provides along the way!!!  We expect to travel after the first of the year – God willing!  We are very excited about what God is showing us and all that He is doing!  We are so very grateful to Him for His mercy and grace and provision throughout this entire process!  Moving closer to bringing our kids home!!!!

Tickets are now on sale for our show!  We are so excited!!!  We are also so grateful to all of those who are helping us spread the word about the show!  You can purchase tickets online from the Harvest Church website, for $12 in advance or at Harvest Church office, Dove Christian SupplyGoldfingers,  Joy FM, and online.   Tickets will be $15 at the door the night of the event.  Each Ticket has a coupon for a free Goldfingers Sandwich with a purchase of side and drink.  Dinner and a show!!!

We have sold several puzzle pieces and the puzzle is starting to take shape!  Thank you to everyone who is helping us on this journey!  Since our travel date has been moved up, we are trusting God to provide all of the finances at the time of need!  Go God!!!  Our Father God is an Awesome God!

Be a piece of the puzzle

We are pleased to reveal a beautiful painting!  We asked a dear friend at church to paint us a special picture for our children.  She is a wonderful artist and she agreed.  We sent her some pictures we had found online of Hungarian art, colors, embroidery flowers, etc.  We told her we wanted it to be child-like and include at least one butterfly.  She painted a picture that was perfect!  It brought tears to my eyes when I saw it!  We thank Mary Heinemann with all of our hearts for the beautiful picture!

Now, we invite you to be a piece of the puzzle that will give children a forever home!  We are going to make a copy of this beautiful painting and send it off to be made into a puzzle (about 500 pieces).  We are looking for people to donate $20 to our puzzle.  For each $20 donation, we will put your name on the back of a piece of this puzzle and begin to assemble it (that may be the tricky part :-)).

If you have ever done any research about adoption, you know that it is very expensive (but oh so worth it!).  We will be using the money from the puzzle piece fundraiser to help pay for the next 3 payments to our Agency, Lifeline Children’s Service, and also the fee for our paperwork at Immigration.  One of the payments and the check to Immigration is due soon.  All together these fees are over $6000.  When we have the puzzle finished, we are going to frame it in a way that we will be able to see all of the names of the people who helped us put the puzzle together and bring our little ones home.  We will be able to tell our children how much God loves them and how He used all of these wonderful people to care for them even before we met them!  We will be able to show them how much they were loved!  We will also look at these  names and pray for those who lifted us up!  We thank you in advance for joining us in caring for “the least of these.”  We pray that God will richly and abundantly bless you for reaching out in love to His children!

Here’s what to do……..If you would like to be part of our puzzle….you can click the Donate button and make a $20 donation for each puzzle piece – be sure to notate that it is for a puzzle piece and include the way you want your name/names written.  You can also send your check to….Haleburg United Methodist Church Adoption Fund, c/o Pastor Tony and Cary Rosetta, 4A Merion Drive, Eufaula, AL 36027.  If you send a check, you will receive a tax receipt by mail so be sure to include your return address.  Please include a note that it is for the Puzzle and the way you want your name/names to be written.  When you donate, please let us know in a comment to this post so that we can thank you and pray for you!

Thank you for helping us!!  God bless you!
