Fabulous News!

I know I've been really quiet on here recently.  But my "free" time has been filled with JOY bags!!!  I am happy to tell you that we have had 132 bags sponsored!  This project has just taken off.  We started out just praying that we would get 50 bags, and we met that goal in TWO hours!  After buying more of the 31 Bags Drawstring Bags multiple times, we finally settled at 132 (we bought 30 more and got 2 free, which is how we got to 132!)

Cathy and I have been busy buying the bags, as well as LOTS of toys to fill those bags!  Each bag will be filled with fun stuff like play dough, several books, bubbles, a dry erase board, twistable Crayola crayons, a coloring book, a cuddly stuffed toy, and much more!  We are also including a sponsor card so that the recipient will know who lovingly sponsored their bag.

Our plan is to deliver some of the bags when we go to CHOP in May.  Then we will give the orthopedics department some bags to keep on hand and give out as they see VEPTR patients.  They will let me know when they begin to run low and we will bring more!

THANK YOU to all of you who sponsored a bag (or more!)  We were blown away by the faithfulness of God as we began this project.  It has been so fun!
