ChipIn Set Up for the Saunders!!


The ChipIn is set up...chip away!! :) Let's bless this family BIG TIME!!!
It has also been suggested that this great family would be great candidates for an ABC Extreme Home Make Over!!!! I think that's a FABULOUS idea!! What do you all think? I have no idea how to start the ball rolling on that one....perhaps someone close to them could make a video of their situation & send it in!!

Hi, sorry to hear about the tragic fire of your friends. I am in Ohio and one of the families here had an extreme makeover last summer. There church family wrote the letter and sent a petition signed by the people and friends of this family. It's worth the effort for this family. :)

I enjoy reading blogs and love reading yours. Thanks for sharing!

That is a fantastic idea. I think the how to is on a website for the show. I wonder if there is an express option...

Hey there. Go to
http://abc.go.com/primetime/xtremehome/
and click on "apply" on the left. It gives instructions. I bet you can find someone there in their CO town who can make a video, use some pictures in it even, and send it in. Who better to get the makeover?!

Fabulous idea! I'm a writer/editor, and though I do not know them well enough to write an entire essay on them, I am more than happy to help out wherever I can!

All the best,
Nicole A. in OH

We live in Montana and our family has attended a little church and a sweet young couple who are new to Montana and had attended their church in Colorado sent a urgent prayer request to everyone in the church. My husband made the comment that they should be great candidates for Extreme Make Over home edition. The spirit within me echoed this same thought. So who in Colorado can get the ball rolling? They should be able to google this show and see what is involved. I wonder if we could get all of their online (and offline) friends to sign some sort of petition to nominate them. I can't believe they wouldn't get. Lets help!

Thanks for jumping in and getting the ball rolling on this! I am going to talk to my hubby right now and see what he thinks we can do. And the Home Make Over idea is THE BEST!

I am Linn's cousin, Jen, and would love to find out how I can help from all the way over in Western NY. I think contacting Extreme Home Makeover is such a great thought... do you think that if many people went to their site and pleaded for the same family that the producers would be more impacted and moved to help out? Ultimately, the Lord will lay it on the right people's hearts to help and get them back on their feet because we know how much we love them - it's sooooo much more intense a love from the Lord that He will definitely be in control of all and through this we will undoubtedly see amazing things happen and His name praised. Thanks for caring for them you all and let me know any way to help

The first thing my husband said when I told him about the fire was to get them nominated for Extreme Home makover. Great minds think alike. Let us know what we can do to help in that. Perhaps if we flood the show with hundreds if not thousands of nominations it might be expedited so they can get their house rebuilt and get back into it long before heading back to China for Jubilee. God will use this circumstance for His glory. What an amazing way for them to show the world God's love for adoption. I can't think of a bigger audience then Extreme Home Makeover. Well, there is Oprah, The Today show, Good Morning America and Dr. Phil as well. Can you imagine the amazing ripple effect that this can have on adoption and obedience to God. God is in control. I would imagine one year from now we will see more orphans finding homes due to their story. God is good!!!!!!Tamara from Washington

Ok FOLKS. I have just finished the application for EHM for the Saunders family. Please, keep leaving your comments and also head over to my site and do the same. The application has a spot for this where they want to read. SO...keep praying and we will see what happens!

Thats a fantastic idea! I wanted to let you know that i have reached out to "Mckmama" at www.mycharmingkids.net about Linn and DW and she has agreed to post about their situation soon. I gave her both Linn's blog address and yours. I'm hoping that this will send some of her followers your way to pitch in, keep in mind that she had over 2000 followers and more than 10,000 blog hits a day. I hope it helps!

I've left a comment on the other blog specifically set up for the EHM for the Saunders. Even without the fire they were so deserving just to have room for their family (present and future!). I'm praying this happens and FAST. Thanks for being such a good friend to the Saunders.
