Blessed...Blessed...and more BLESSED!

I won the $500 Ordinary Hero grant!
I am so thankful to ALL of you who bought on my behalf.

Not sure exactly the amount of "sheep" that were bought in my name....but will let you know soon! It was very exciting to get an email from Kelly....and to read YOU WON! So thankful! :)

On OrdinaryHero blog:

Rachel Hauter!!! Wow! Rachel went nuts with the selling....or should I say she has some awesome friends and family that purchased on her behalf. I think she now will have a whole herd of sheep to give away in Ethiopia on her mission trip :) She sold $2372.55 worth of product in those 6 days!! Wow!! She receives 40% of that total plus this $500 grant. Congrats, Rachel!!
Kelly even wondered how I did it?!?!? Funny thing is...........not sure...other than I KNOW I HAVE AN AMAZING FAMILY and AMAZING friends who God has blessed me with! I WISH I COULD NAME EVERYONE! Once I receive the list......then I will because I want to thank everyone personally for helping me and FEEDING children in Ethiopia! I couldn't wait to get over there....but now...it makes it so much sweeter to know all of you will TRULY be helping children in Ethiopia and that I will be able to hug and serve them for YOU!.....

Below are some pictures of when our team bought sheep back in July for the different orphanages and a church that we attended. Was it my favorite thing seeing these animals get treated like this...and then killed? Noooooooooooooooooo but.....thankful we got to fill up some bellies!:):):):)
(a.) Obtaining or deserving thanks; thankworthy.
(a.) Impressed with a sense of kindness received, and ready to acknowledge it; grateful.

Thank you again...and again...for giving so that I can go.

P.S.-------less than 2 months and I will be in Ethiopia...Lord willing! :)I'll take whatever donations you have....to send over!:)
