Ethiopia - here we come! And online auctions!

So, if you have been following my blog at all, you know that we are eagerly anticipating being able to bring our two daughters home to their family!  The final details to be wrapped up, are the final funds and travel expenses. So, we have several things of interest going on.

I am going to be posting items for auction or sale as fundraisers for this final hurdle!  We are down to needing just under $16000 all total.  It sounds like a lot, but there are many things in the hopper.  God has got this in His hands.  And we just keep doing our part and everything we can think of!  So, keep checking back, it will change just about daily!  And share with everyone you know!  LOL!

First things first.  I am going to list a handmade Ethiopian scarf, appears to have been woven on a loom.  A friend's daughter brought it back for us, to be used however it could help!  It is about six feet long and a foot wide, and absolutely gorgeous colors!!!!

What we are going to do is this:  If you are interested in this item, please post a bid in the "comments" section (and please figure that it will come to you priority mail and I will ask that you pay that - so $4.95 for shipping, so keep that in mind as you figure what you would be willing to spend on it - always something to keep in mind as you bid - we do it on eBay all the time!!!).  This auction will run for SEVEN days, so until Sunday night (9PM) February 12th.  Highest bidder at that time will win the item.  I will contact you to get address.  We do use PayPal, so that is a possible way to make payment or you can send it to me.  I will ship it out!  (And as we will be adding more items daily, if you are bidding on more than one thing, let me know and I will hold it until you find out if you won another - and we could then combine shipping!)

Sound good??

Okay, here is the handmade scarf from Ethiopia:  Six feet in length, one foot in width, light weight and just gorgeous!!!  What a great way to bless two little girls and the family anxiously awaiting them!!!  Help us bring them home!!!!!

So, all you have to do to bid is to put your bid in the comment section and check back to make sure you weren't outbid and see if you need to place a higher bid!  (By the way, if you live local, we can arrange to meet up rather than ship the item!)

Thanks so much for helping to love on Azeb and Kahsu!  I almost cannot believe it that in about a month we will be together again, and finally!  They will come HOME!  They will have a FAMILY!  Brothers and sisters and a mom and a dad who love them!    Just a few more hurdles!  Just a few!  I want to encourage you that every little bit helps.  As we have seen in the last five years, if lots of folks do just a little, a lot is accomplished!  Thanks!
