A blessing beyond imagination

Wow... I am still a bit speechless (which is rare) as I write this post. I have posted some glimpses, in previous posts, regarding some financial constraints that our family is facing right now. What I haven't shared is that we have had to use almost all of our adoption savings for other things in recent months. We, of course, were a little stressed about this but have always known that we serve an awesome God of miracles. Well... last night we experienced the miracle of people who love like Jesus first hand. Buster and I are part of an amazing small group, who Buster and I are technically the leaders of... even though we never feel like leaders and always more like members of a company of incredible followers of Christ... And, last night these incredible nine families came together and surprised us with a financial blessing to the tune of over $4000!!!!! Almost exactly the balance we need!!!! I am still shocked... and wanted to share this experience as a testament to what happens when people love each other like Christ loves the church. These great people came together and decided to invest in our adoption. Their generosity will provide the means for at least one, if not two, beautiful orphans to be adopted into not just the Vincent family but our incredible small group family as well. I cannot praise God enough for these people, for this gift we've been given, and hope that soon their contribution will be applied directly to the adoption of a little girl or girls that God has destined for us!
THANK YOU!!!!! We LOVE you! :)
