“If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever – the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I WILL NOT LEAVE YOU AS ORPHANS; I WILL COME TO YOU.” John 14:15-18
A promise filled with Hope!
So what does this little guy…..
And this table have to do with this promise??
The sale of this table will contribute to his homecoming!!!
His name is Ike Eskridge. He is currently living in an orphanage in China, but not for long. You see, his forever family is waiting on their travel date to go bring him home, and the sale of this table will help them do that.
We started a silent auction for the 6 foot Trestle Farm Table at The Chapel Market last Saturday. The bidding started at $450 and is now up to $625. We will continue to take bids until 4pm Saturday November 1st at The Pike Road Arts and Crafts Fair. The table will go home with the highest bidder, and all the money will go directly to this sweet family.
Meet The Eskridges…..
Dexter grew up with Martha Hunter in Camden, AL. They went to school together from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Martha Hunter also became a nurse and helped deliver 2 of our children. We are so excited for her and her family, as we know the joy set before them! We cannot wait to meet Ike and see the transformation God has in store for his life as his feet are planted in Acres of Hope.
