this is always a happy sticker to see.
even happier when i don't expect it and don't know what's in it.
LOOK WHAT WAS IT WAS!!!!!
with a note...
when i wrote about africa i sent a picture and link to amy butler herself.
i told her that "i thought you'd like to see how far your book went and what we did with it"
she wrote back.
she and her staff had read all my posts about africa and they were excited and wanted to DO MORE.
she asked what we needed.
i told her patterns and fabric.
she sent it.
Mallory is part of amy's staff....and so nice.
two boxes arrived.
one with patterns and books.
one with three bags of fabric!
and another encouraging note from another staff member named beth.
don't you LOVE the LOVE line even more now?!
i wish i could see the boys faces when they get this.
erin and chris are missionaries with word made flesh from nebraska, living is freetown.
they are visiting their family in the states for a few weeks and they will bring this back to the boys.
i am so happy.
i am so excited for them.
i love that amy's heart is so big.
i miss africa.
remember my post at liferearranged last week?
i wanted to be a little more clear about WORD MADE FLESH.
by donating money on that blog post the money will go to the sierra leone division of WMF.
this is a small group of people.
these are the people you are donating to.
WMF has a small staff of 11 people who work with the youth and community.
their missions statement....
"We are called to holistically care for children and young adults through discipleship, educational/vocational opportunities and family-like relationships. "
they are doing it.
they have a place to meet called the Ale' Ale' Home.
they meet with their LightHouse ministry here...for worship, fellowship, help with school work,
small group, prayer and bible study.
Light House is what they call their teen program.
the tailoring program is part of Light House.
they also run the Kroo Bay Good News Club.
they meet medical needs, physical needs as well as spiritual needs of over 250 children in Kroo Bay.
i know that YOU KNOW my heart for africa.
my heart for these faces in sierra leone.
so....i am asking again.
could you give to Word Made Flesh?
if every reader gave even one dollar....that would be thousands of dollars today.
can you give one dollar?
GO HERE TO DONATE to word made flesh today.
thank you to all of you who gave already.
you are a blessing.
