It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

A Matching Grant!!!!!!

We have been awarded a matching grant!!!! 

Lifesong for Orphans is a non-profit Christian ministry dedicated to help meet the needs of orphan children around the world. With over 147 million orphans (yeah, be shocked. That is NOT a typo.), Lifesong seeks to mobilize the Body of Christ to love and care for orphans. 

By donating through Lifesong, your gift will be tax deductible. Want to hear the coolest part? 100% of the funds your donate will go directly to cover our adoption costs. They do such as great job with stewardship, that they cover administrative costs other ways. After we have reached our fundraising goal, we hope you will join us in helping Lifesong serve other adoptive families by providing another donation to them. 

Lifesong has awarded a matching grant of $3500 to help pay our adoption expenses. Will you please consider making a tax deductible donation to help us meet this matching grant and cover the remaining $26,000 to bring our girls home? Our goal date is July 1st, but funds will be accepted towards our adoption until our adoption is complete.

There are two ways to donate: 

Option #1: 
Write a Check
  • Please make checks payable to Lifesong for Orphans. 
  • In the memo, note "Family Account #5208" and "Robey" to assure it goes to the correct account
  • Mail to: Lifesong for Orphans PO Box 40 Gridley, IL 61744

Option #2: 
  • Go to this LINK
  • Complete the Online Form 
  • Be sure to enter "5208" for Family Acct Number and "Robey" for Family Name

Please remember that even a small gift is helpful. If everyone who read this even just gave $10, it would make a big impact (and be a huge encouragement for us).

We travel in less than 2 weeks for our first trip. 
Most of our funds needs to be raised BEFORE that time. 

Thank you!!!!!
