Okay I take it all back ... Scary Homeland Security Chick ... how can I blame her now after what happened recently in New York (bomb in vehicle). She's probably reacting like that because she's freaked out herself.
Anyway I digress. I thought I would do some of my favourite things for you.
Picture above - Alex with wee little one at Maula Orphan Care Centre.
Syd - Maula
Just look at my girl go - I don't know how many balloon dogs she made but she became very skilled at it and the kids loved them.
Girls at Grace Orphan Care - they loved their face painting so much they kept rubbing it off and asking for new ones. We did face painting for more than an hour. They asked for a heart by saying the word "love."
This baby at Ana Di Atu was being carried around on her sister's back. She was soaked with urine (no diapers) but she was a darlin.
Len Coleman - Johannesburg
Our wonderful brother in Christ who helped Syd and I - strangers in a strange land.
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).
