a wintery benefit

What a busy weekend. Thank you so much for all your prayers for our benefit concert last night for Hailee.

Living at an altitude of 8500, there really is no telling what the weather will do on any given day. Fall is proving to be cold. But we have yet to have a day as cold as yesterday was. Can’t help the weather, hey?

We knew the forecast said cold weather, but didn’t imagine it would be that cold. We never got above 18 degrees. Snow and extremely cold temperatures prevailed throughout the day.

By the time evening came, temperatures dropped even further. It was so, so freezing. Bad news for anyone wanting to venture out for the night. A dance group canceled because of icy roads. Many preferred to stay indoors.

We understood completely.

Still, the show had to go on. Special people had braved the freezing cold conditions, and came to support us. And what a blessed time it was. Though we did not raise as much as we were hoping for, the way we see it, we have more now than we did on Friday. And that’s a blessing!

We are so thankful to the Lord for friends who love us, strangers who support our mission, and a God who is more than able to provide every dollar we need to bring Hailee home. And He will!
