Location, Location, Location!


Who knew finding a location for an event could be so hard? Way back when we had our Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser, we has some precious friends offer to do a BBQ Dinner Fundraiser for us. My only job was finding a location to host it...easy enough, right? That's what I thought, too! But...I soon found out that it wasn't quite so easy. I won't go into all the pitfalls of responses I received from my attempts at finding a location...there's just no need and I'd rather ask for your prayers that our potential location works out! :)

The pastor of a local church is in our Classical Conversations Homeschool Community (and we volunteered together in Good News Club at Big Cypress Elementary last school year). He asked me yesterday how things were coming along with our adoption. I mentioned in our conversation that we were still trying to find a location for our BBQ Dinner/Fundraiser. He asked how many I thought might attend. Judging by our spaghetti dinner, I gave him an estimate & thought that was the end of the conversation...but he came back later and said he thought his church might be able to help us out! He emailed me a form for use of the church and I filled it out & emailed it back to him. Hopefully we will hear soon if the deacons approve our request...and if they do, then I'll be announcing all the details and looking for silent auction items! :)

If this works out, we are looking at doing the dinner on Monday, March 19th or Tuesday, March 20th...so save those dates, please pray God provides the perfect place (either this church or another location) and stay tuned for more details! :)

Just found out last night that March 19th & 20th don't work for the family that's doing the BBQ Dinner for us...so we're looking at March 26th or 27th. Hopefully this will work for the church, too. :)
