So, I'm not going on the mission trip to the Kenyan orphanage this winter with my Church group, which I'm bummed about....But I am going to go sometime within the next 2 years. I can feel it and I know it. I just started this journey a bit too late this year and didn't have the time & funds to sign up in time, re-arrange work commitments and ran out of time to convince my family that this was a good thing. I know, excuses, right? But, I'm convinced that there will be time in the near future when the trip has my name (and God's name) written all over it. This wasn't the one. But, I am helping the local group fundraise. They are trying to raise $7,000 to build a separate boys wing so that the kids can be separated by gender. A few weekends ago Samme & I participated in the "Run for Orphans." And Samme & I are helping my friend Milly who is going, FILL up a giant duffle bag FULL of art supplies, vitamins, first aid supplies, kids clothes, books, etc. Won't you be so kind as to send some items or a monetary donation for the new wing for the kids at the orphanage? Email me for my mailing address. Every little bit helps.... Thanks so much! Oh, and I need this stuff as soon as possible...early November at the latest!
ps - Look at all of the great vitamins everyone sent last month to Jodi! Woot! I love how a few people can make such a difference.
