Dossier Sent!

We just received news that our dossier is being sent to Haiti today! Hurrah! We are told it will be 6-8 months from today that we will receive our official referral for the boys. We are praying and ask you to join us in prayer for things to go quicker. We are specifically asking the Lord if we could travel our two week visit this summer. This would be so much easier in so many ways, especially re; Ron’s teaching load.
We have raised around $14,000 total and are applying for some grants and some matching grants. 
We continue to be humbled by the Lord’s goodness in all the details. 
Thinking upon the fact that we are orphan’s spiritually without the saving love of Jesus in our lives. Jesus said in John 14:18, “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” I have thought about the fact that our boys do not even know yet how we already love them, how we have already been willing to give up all to be able to come get them….just as God had done for us in sending Jesus for us. He has paid the price for the sin of the whole world. He desperately loves us and wants us to be His children. 
Thank you each so much for your prayers, encouragement and help in this journey.
We are looking for single bunk beds and mattresses and if anyone has a wooden swing set in your backyard you do not want anymore, we will come take it down!
We will do our best to keep you posted with any new updates.
Blessings,
The Schaffner Family
