They need YOU!

**UPDATE: 14 commitments, 133 to go!!

I know you've heard about the Block family on our blog before... because we just love this family so much and support and believe in what they are doing!

Well, RIGHT NOW, it's time to rally around them as senders! The Block family is ready to move to Guatemala to serve orphaned and vulnerable children through Eagle's Nest in Solana, Guatemala, but are waiting on the Lord to provide the necessary funds to do so. God already sold their house (very quickly might I add), so this family of 11 has moved into a temporary FREE rental (that the Lord provided) until they can go. They have sold their possessions and are diligently preparing to leave - learning a new language and fundraising, while raising 9 kiddos and homeschooling! YES. THEY. ARE. AMAZING!

Would you please join me in spreading the word about The Block Family?!?  The Blocks need 147 families to pledge $25/month in support so their family will be able to serve Him as missionaries to orphans in Guatemala. 

Ironic that there are 147 million orphans in the world and they need 147 sponsors??? :) Please prayerfully consider supporting this beautiful family and leave a comment here if you are able to support them with $25 a month. I mean, really... we can all make a sacrifice of $25 a month!

For each $25 supporter, you'll be entered into a drawing for a beautiful piece of art... I won't share a photo just yet... just to keep you squirming! :)

*And, of course I have to mention, that your tax-deductible pledge will have an eternal investment in the Kingdom, as you already know.

  2. Christi - I think they're only going to need 147 sponsors, not 147 million. Thank goodness :)

  6. Thanks for supporting the Block family. They are Real Life friends, and they are a precious family. I am so excited to see what the Lord is going to do in them and through them as they minister in Guatemala.

  14. Despite the fact that my husband got laid off today, and we don't even know how we will pay next month's mortgage, we have pledged to support the Blocks with $25 monthly. We know that the Lord will provide ... for our needs and for the Block's needs.
