Ethiopia & iFellowship

I have some AMAZING friends that are so dear to my heart. They were the directors of the internship program I went to called The Honor Academy.

Meet: Trace & Randee Jones :)image

They are the sweetest! I am so blessed by their friendship and leadership in my life! If you click the picture above you will be brought to their blog. It shares there whole story.

It is called “The Jones Journey” for a reason… they are in the process of adopting a baby boy from Ethiopia! YES! You read that right… AFRICA! I am sooo excited for them :)

They have had a few fundraisers going on for the expenses but the biggest one is a RAFFLE! It started right before Thanksgiving & I would LOVE if you could all check it out and see if you have $5.00 to contribute! Really… you could also win BIG!
