Yardsale Fundraiser

We had our yard sale fundraiser today and it was amazing! So many people came out and supported us! We raise quite a bit of money. It was funny because we got up to the church at 5:30 this morning to set up, and within 10 minutes of us being up there and having the first load unloaded, we had customers browsing. It was funny because they were browsing while I was still unpacking. We had several of our big items sold before 7:00 am...By 7 we felt like we had already been there all day, because we had so many great customers. By 1:00 we were exhausted, heat exhausted and ready to go home. We had a couple of big items we still wanted to sell, but we were going to pack up and leave at 2:00 if they weren't sold, of course a little disappointed, but like I said we were really tired and hot. And of course you KNOW God came through. We had a 52" TV that was donated to us and we were really trying to sell that because that would bring us some money. We had one lady that came up and said oh yeah I want that, I will send my grandmother up here in just a few minutes to get it. So as we waited for her grandmother to come by we had several more customers, and would you know more people was looking at the TV, but we told them that it was sold. Well her grandmother did show up, but wasn't able to get the TV, so God being the God that he is had one of the customers that really wanted the TV still there and she bought it. Once those customers had purchased all they were purchasing we packed up the items that we had left, put them in the trailer that is so conveniently sitting in our church parking lot about to head out to one of the towns here in KY that are less fortunate, and we headed home.

God is such an amazing God!!! We prayed and prayed and prayed for that TV to be sold and it was sold, and all the other big items that we wanted to get rid of we were able to sell. The moral of the story is that God is GREAT!!!! :)
