Fundraising

Sometimes you think you go to church to hear a sermon, this Sunday God brought me to church to listen to a friend and some simple yet very good advice. Thanks Fred!!

Sunday morning at church during lunch I was talking to some old co-workers. I used to work at a bookstore called the King is Coming Christian store, and as we were talking about all things adoption I was kindly reminded that maybe I shouldn’t get hung up on the materialistic things, like setting up a baby room right now, or what that might look like in the future.

So I said to Daniel on the way home on Sunday “I really think I’ve been thinking selfishly, in that I thought somehow the money would just show up and God would miraculously provide.” Well I can say I do believe that God is going to provide us the funding for our adoption but this doesn’t mean that I can sit on my butt and wait for the money to land in my bank account.

A couple of weeks ago we were presented with the opportunity to fund-raise through an organization that just began here in Canada. A friend that I have met through another blog and who is also adopting from the Democratic Republic of the Congo really noticed that in Canada we don’t often have the opportunity to fund-raise like they do in the US. So her and her husband have started a website where 50% of the purchase will go to an adoption agency for affiliate families. If you would like to support us in this way you can follow the link http://oncewaslost.storenvy.com/ and all you have to do is place our names “Daniel and Krista Nickerson” into the notes to the seller field and 50% of your purchase will go to our agency in B.C.

Last week another friend of mine said that we should have a BBQ and Bonfire at our place and put out a jar and any donations are welcome. This week Daniel said maybe we should see about doing a pie fundraiser as it was his favorite way to fund-raise money.

Now I am asking you What is your favorite Fundraiser?

I am an Island girl from Prince Edward Island Canada. My husband and I are on an adoption journey that we would have never expected. I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, soul and strength. My hope for this blog is that you would be encouraged by how God is providing for all our needs, through adoption and beyond. This blog is to show the journey that we have come through, and the journey that we are on.
