"Journey to Noelle" is our largest and final fundraising event, and tonight is the night. We've been talking about it for months and planning and rehearsing for it for the past 2 months. Now it's here. Yikes!
Eric and I, all my vocal and piano students, a wonderful local group called The Mirthmakers (2 members attend our church), and several other local musicians will perform. We will also be sharing our personal story and testimony of adoption and playing several adoption-related video clips up on large screen. Noelle's face will also be highly evident throughout. :) And this is all topped off with an ice cream sundae bar. Yummm--
I'm feeling a tad (probably more than a tad) nervous about it coming off well, and wondering if the final details will fall into place. It will be an intense and emotional evening. I'm very excited about getting to share in this time of celebration with friends around our community (and hope that several families feel moved to consider or pursue adoption after tonight), but, boy will I be glad when it's over. Whew!
Please be in prayer for Eric and I as we share from our hearts.
Please pray that the Lord provides in a MIRACULOUS way (we believe!).
And pray that the Holy Spirit's presence is felt by all in attendance.
Thank you SO much! I'll be sure to post about the event later this weekend.
