Boston, adopted a sweet little girl from Simferopol, has set up a most tempting fundraiser for Project T.L.C. and boy oh boy do I wish I lived in NE right now as I would certainly make my way there. You can read about this very creative idea here. If you live close I think you might need to make a day of it and go have some fun. Take note of the very cute princess that is featured in the article. Madelaine and I are gearing up to make more weighted lap blankets so if you all would like one please feel free to email me.
So, what are we hoping to accomplish this trip? Well, our main goal is to establish contact with orphanage personnel and to really find out the needs of the children. Since this is our first trip over there in this capacity I think of it as a fact finding mission trip so that we can regroup once we return to the U.S.A. and see where God leads us on our next trip. At this time we would like to ask you for prayers for our safety as we travel, for the people we need to make contact with that they will be open to allowing us to work with them for the good of the children, and most importantly that we will be examples of God's people to those we meet. I want to also thank those who have so generously helped to fund our trip. I know so many things are happening in your lives and so your financial gifts are truly appreciated and we know are going to make a difference. Right now I do not have all the details for our trip but when we do return I hope to share with you all some very exciting news of our work as well as pictures.
