"Baking for Baby" - Africa Shaped Cookies!

God is already reminding us just how faithful He is! Just today, we have already raised $160! I got a nice surprise in the mail from my friend LeeAnn - a book of stamps! That will help us mail out 20 of our sponsorship/support letters. I like how God works in fun ways! I also received the most sincere and touching e-mail today from a friend that I go to church with. It was full of so much encouragement...thanks Heather! I will have to blog about the great lessons Heather shared with me from Genesis 3 later will need it's own blog entry :)
If that's not some amazing blessings, I also had a friend offer me the chance to raise some money at her upcoming Mary Kay's how we are going to do it!

The first fundraiser we are launching (starting now!) is "Baking for Baby" - we will be selling iced sugar cookies in the shape of Africa for $5 for 1/2 dozen or $10 a dozen (or you can buy fewer cookies for $1 a cookie). We will be taking orders and selling cookies during the month of August.

If you would like to order cookies to help us "Bring Home the Missing Linck," you can e-mail me your order at Here is a photo of the cookie cutter, so that you can get an idea of what the cookies will look like. They are actually pretty big cookies!

We have already sold 16 dozen cookies. Holy Cow, I better stop blogging and start baking!

  1. Are you still doing your cookie fundraiser? My best friend is also adopting from Ethiopia, and I need a favor for her shower. I would need 4 or 5 dozen cookies by October 16. I live near Nashville, TN. I don't know if you are shipping them or not. Feel free to email me at if you would be able to help me. Thanks in advance, and best wishes with your adoption!
