We have a date and an update!

One of two important dates coming up is tomorrow!  Will you please pray for us?  At 2 pm tomorrow we are having our first conference call with our social worker from Lifeline regarding our adoption.  We are super excited, but know we're going to have a lot to take in, and a lot more paperwork to complete.  

We also heard back from the Houston based agency we'll be using for our home study, and we're going to set it up for NEXT WEEK!  We are very excited about this as well, it makes us one step closer.  Each little part is exciting.  

Thank you SO MUCH for everyone that has purchased puzzle pieces so far and for the straight up donations!  We basically raised almost $1,000 in a week!  That $5 or $10 you gave feels like $1,000s to us!  We really had no clue how we were going to do this.  But God began putting ideas in our heads, and all we have to do is follow through.  We hope you don't tire of seeing the different things we have coming up, we have been blessed by so many already!

Two things we'd like for you all to share if you feel so led are:
1)  Next Tuesday, June 21st from 12 noon - 9:30 pm go have some great frozen yogurt!!  The Orange Leaf Katy is giving us 10% of their sales from all day!  All you have to do is say that it's for the Newsome Family and they'll put your receipt in the box with our name on it.  The address is: 
Villagio Shopping Center, 22756 Westheimer Parkway Suite 120, Katy, TX 77450

2)  We have set the date for our garage sale!  It'll be Saturday July 23rd from 7 am - 1pm.  We'll be taking donated items to sell, as well as baking cupcakes to sell and support Cupcake Kids.  It has it's own page at the of this page.  Check it out here.

Thank you again, I don't think we'll ever tire of saying that!
Isaiah 58:6-11   "Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?  Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him,and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?  Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.  Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry, and he will say, 'Here I am.' If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, if you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.  And the LORD will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail."

Are you interested in donations toward your garage sale? I just cleaned out my closet, and if you want clothes, you can have them if you'll come and get them very soon. I don't know you but live in Katy area near Kingsland Baptist.
