Yard sale for An orphanage in Guatemala

In a few hours there will be a yard sale at my house. The proceeds go to buy diapers when we arrive in Guatemala. I say "We" because a friend of mine called me a week ago and finally bought her ticket after a few months of her saying she wanted to go with me. I am beyond excited to share this special moment with her. 
Why do I feel insecure? It's just a thought, a negative thought. Will people come? Will people donate? Will people buy? I need to constantly remind myself that God is on the side of these children. He will be victorious for them. 
There's a lot of good stuff that was donated, such as a coffee table, chairs, toys, clothes, a bike (without a seat), strollers and even a large oil painting. I am so blessed to have such a great support system. My mom and sister helped me put up signs late last night, friends donated A LOT of things and someone whom I have not met personally (met her on Instagram), will be coming to help. Thank you Lord! So we shall see what God will do with this 

“Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told."(Habakkuk 1:5 NIV)
These were taken today (my mom helped set up a day early and sold $40 worth of stuff)
