That is what the sign read that was nestled in approximately 400 or so stuffies. Thanks to Meredith Connelly and McCammon Traditional Elementary School we now have all the stuffies and teddy bears we need. I didn't know Meredith was going to do this. She went to the school with a request on our behalf. To send stuffies to Africa for children who don't have any toys. These tender-hearted children at McCammon brought in their teddy bears and in some cases, teddy bears that still held emotional attachments, so they could bless children in the orphan care centres in Malawi.
Not only did they give but they wrote as well. Take a minute and read a couple of the precious letters that a couple of the McCammon students wrote to boys and girls in Africa.
But now the Lord says, "Do not weep any longer, for I will reward you. Your children will come back to you from the distant land of the enemy. There is hope in your future, says the Lord. Your children will come again to their own land."
- Jeremiah 31:16&17
"Commit everything to the Lord, trust Him and He will help you."
Sydney and I will be going to Malawi, Africa to partner with Alex and Andre VanWoerden and Emmanuel International. Our purpose is to connect with children in Orphan Care Centres and local schools in meaningful ways. We plan to share the simple message of Jesus, fellowship with the children by providing lunch and sharing the meal with them and playing soccer.
Sydney and I will distribute teddy bears to orphans who have no toys, hand out tee shirts so kindly donated by Stillwood Camp and provide for other tangible needs (clothing and school supplies).
