While writing our last post, announcing the newest addition to the Fisher family, Jay and I were in the middle of discussing all of the things we were going to need to fundraise for in the coming months, and the figures were getting higher and higher! We had planned on writing a second post to lay out all of these costs, but stress and no time got in the way every weekend. Well, I think God had his hand in us not writing that post!
Instead of writing a "WE NEED MONEY!" Post....
We get to write a "GOD HAS BLESSED OUR SOCKS OFF!!!!!" Post!!!!!!!!!!
So, to show you just how much God has blessed us, let me show you what our costs WERE going to be:
NOW to show you just how much God has blessed us!
BUT THATS NOT ALL!!!! (I totally feel like a gameshow host right now...)
For those of you who remember a few months back when we received a letter from the IRS saying we owed them $1,200 for 2014, well we were able to find an accountant who helped us fix our 2014, 2015 and file our 2016 taxes, and we RECEIVED MONEY BACK!!!! Enough to pay for all our upcoming expenses and to replenish the emergency fund we depleted when Evie had her seizures!
HOW AWESOME IS THAT!?!?!?!?!
With this all being said, we are blown away by how God has provided for us, even when things were stressful and looking hopeless. This provision and everything that goes along with it is ACTUALLY CRAZY. We knew that God would provide somehow (We thought it would be through fundraising, gifts, etc) but apparently God had waaaaay different plans! I've known this news for a week or two now, and I am STILL in shock that everything has been taken care of!
SO! We don't need to fundraise this year. AT ALL.
Our family is growing, and our ministry will be growing soon as well. So we could still use your help! We are always in need of more supporters in prayer, one time gifts and longtime givers. We have been so blessed by all of our supporters and how they are all unwaivering in thier giving (You know who you are!!) and we are so extremely grateful for them. If you you want to be a part of this awesome team (You know you do!) You can find more information HERE.
Still in shock.....
Feeling so blessed.....
Can't wait to see the next surprise God has in store for us!
P.S. Here is an updated picture of our Little one! 13 weeks down, 27 to go!
