Many of you are probably wondering…”whats the deal with the Platts? Are they here are they in Thailand or….?”
Almost. The fact is this whole-moving-six-people-across-the-earth saga is actually a tremendous undertaking! Who would a thought?! Our entire life has been consumed by this!
But….we have exciting news! Two awesome things really!
First, Sam made his first movie! I know right?! Pretty impressive! Well, technically its not really a “movie” per say, and more like a clip, but still! And technically “he” didn’t make it as much as come up with the idea and did the voice over..but in my book he’s a rock-star! Mad props to Grayson Howard for actually putting it together. The kid is a legend.
Anyways…Please please share it! It’s good and better than that it echos the heart of God…that these kids are right now trapped and waiting to be rescued need us to be their actual voice! God just might be calling you to be involved in someway? I am so proud of him!http://youtu.be/DQ459KvLJQw( click here for link)
Secondly, we are STOKED to announce that this weekend we are having an exciting event at The Crossing!! We call it “ Shop 2 ship us”! All services, all campuses, The Crossing is generously donating ALL the proceeds of whatever You buy at The Shop! You guys this is be AMAZING! They have such cool stuff in there! They have books that will change your life, if you’re not a reader that’s cool..there is jewelry (some even handmade from people in Haiti), tons of sweet apparel, accessories, home goods, and More! Anything you buy goes straight to us to get to Thailand! We are so grateful for this opportunity and are praying it will be incredible! We have quite of money we need to raise so this is such a great way! We will also have a table set up there! We are doing a “different” kind of fundraiser called “Tag that bag” you wont want to miss it! As always you can donate here on our blog too if shopping isn’t your thing. God is good you guys, we have been able to have ringside seats to see His grace and provision! He is setting things in motion in His timing, and we continually look to Him in faith to fulfill His word!
To our sweet sweet friends that have been supporting us in all kinds of ways…THANK YOU! We are all created to live out the dreams He alone puts into our hearts its not an easy thing to go after; so we are grateful for folks who bear the burdens along the way! See you this weekend! We cannot wait to share with you come Monday morning!!
