    For day 20, we left a Chick-Fil-A gift card and note in our mailbox for our mailman.  We got to peek out the window and watch him get it, which was so fun for the children to do! For day 21, we donated to Project Hopeful by purchasing things like mattresses for orphans, goats, a … Continue reading →

    For day 14, we took 4 big sub sandwiches to our local firestation. We thought it would be a big hit with the firemen but God love their hearts, they were more concerned about giving us hats and stickers and letting the children climb in their firetruck and ring their bell. I think they gave … Continue reading →

    Day 5 was a flop. We attempted to bake cookies to deliver but they turned out hard and over-baked. Oops. So we tried again this morning and made cinnamon rolls right from the tube (Thank you Immaculate Baking Company!) We snuck down the street and left them at a friend’s door who lost her sweet … Continue reading →

For day 14, we took 4 big sub sandwiches to our local firestation. We thought it would be a big hit with the firemen but God love their hearts, they were more concerned about giving us hats and stickers and letting the children climb in their firetruck and ring their bell. I think they gave us more than we gave them! But maybe it’s a guy thing, you don’t act too excited till it’s chow time after the guests leave!

For day 16, we donated to New Day Foster Home! We visited New Day when we were in China in August 2013 (Two pictures below). The staff was wonderful and they work very hard to take care of orphans that would otherwise have no hope. We love supporting New Day! Caring for the least of these and finding them forever families.

For day 17, we went to our local park and used sidewalk chalk to write messages of hope to all that will see… kids idea! It didn’t sound all that fun to me… to load up five children and go to the park in chilly weather, but you gotta be that fun mom when your children need you to be, right?! We wrote things like “Joy to the World,” “Do you know that God loves you so crazy much?” “Jesus saves,” etc!

For day 18, we left quarters on two toy machines along with “You’ve Been Rack’ed” notes at a local toy store, hopefully it made some child’s day to find those!

For day 19, each of the four older children picked something from Compassion International’s Gift Catalog. We ended up buying two chickens and two mosquito nets for someone in a third-world country! LOVED doing this, so neat for children to get to pick out what they want to donate!. http://www.compassion.com/catalog/catalog-view-all-gifts.htm
