We have some winners!!!!

Abe pulled through this morning.  Opening and closing his hand is a difficult task, but he rose to the challenge.  Words can't adequately express our gratitude for the way each of you stepped up to help bring Hope to Dube Bute.  These people mean so much to our family and we are humbled that so many have chosen to literally transform their lives.  Over $2,000 was raised in this raffle!  A.M.A.Z.I.N.G

I hated seeing so many names in the basket and only having ONE winner.  So we have ONE GRAND PRIZE winner and 5 additional winners.  The others will be receiving a traditional Ethiopian wooden cross.

Congrats to April Reep!!! Grand Prize Winner.  You will receive a large box from me and several additional items from the people that donated them directly! 

5 additional winners!!!

Thank you ABE!!! My family is so excited that you pulled our name! I never win anything! :) I'm so glad that this money helped such an amazing cause. We are adopting from Ethiopia so it meant even more to me. Thanks again so much!

SERIOUSLY!?!?! Abe - You & the Lord knew I needed that Ethiopian cross for many reasons yet unspoken. I am beyond excited!!!

Candy said...

Yeah, Abe! You were awesome, Buddy. You did it with great concentration and a huge smile, as always, on that beautiful face. You bring me joy!!

Thank you to all who are helping with the transformation of Dube Bute-- a Kingdom enterprise.
