Moldova Here They Come

Frank had class in Montgomery this weekend and I went with him to help Kat and Brian with their yard sale.  My daughter and her husband are going on a mission trip this summer to Moldova to work in an orphanage...and just love on some kids.  They have raised an insane amount of money each for this trip and today put them over the top.  They had a yard sale...with stuff many of their friends and church members donated.  They raised over 800.00 and I am so proud....whipped...but proud.  We got there at 6:15 this morning after having worked until after 9 last night....to find they had almost everything already out.  THEY had been up since 4:30.  By 7 this morning...we were rolling right along.  I slipped inside about that time and caught a couple of pictures of what their yard looked like...through the kitchen window.  I was amazed at how generous people were with what they bought...once they found out what it was for....and with their donations....Kat and Brian have good friends.  Several of their friends showed up to work.  Mandy, was our organizer...and what an organizer she is....she dug in boxes...put stuff out as tables began to clear...so it always looked like we had a good supply of stock.  Chris, was our money man.  He made change and kept the count going.  Brian, Kat, Savannah, Chrissie and I worked the sale.  I am beat.  This is too much for the over 50 one here.  Those young ones are still going strong.
6:15 from the road...looking up their driveway.  Lots of stuff...and we were still bringing it out.

Kat and Frank sneaking a hug before he left for class and after he had helped Brian bring out the three recliner chairs.

 Some of the stuff we had to sell.  Are these the cutest dishes ever?  We even had a service of 6 set of Vintage Nortake china...Water Lily pattern....we finally sold it about 10:30....for 30.00

Throught the kitchen window after the signs were put out.....again!

They just kept coming.....it was amazing!

There was something for everyone....that was for sure.   I am so glad to see their dream of this mission trip come to fruition....and to have played a small part in it.  They have been working like dogs since they decided they had been called to make this trip.  Please pray for them as they begin to ready themselves spiritually and as they travel to do God's work in the mission field.  There are many hurting people in this world. That is why Jesus instructed His disciples to go out into all the world and tell the Good News to every person (Mark 16:15). As you share God's love with those around you, the Lord will use you to help make His love a reality in other people's lives.  Kat and Brian will be doing just this.  I am one proud mama.
