Sharing the Love - Thank you

    “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for 
one of the least of these brothers of mine, 
you did for me." 
(Matt. 25:40)
I realize it has been a few months since the fundraiser, but I just recently got the information so that I can pass it along to you.  Around Christmas last year, we decided to host a fundraiser to send to the precious children in the orphanage that cared for Lia until last year.  We ended up combining our funds raised with another fundraiser for the orphanage so that it would go a little further.  The wonderful non-profit organization, Love Without Boundaries, supports this orphanage, so the funds were donated and dispersed through them with 100% of the money going directly to this orphanage. 
I am happy to report that you helped us raise $550.00 to purchase
diapers and clothing for the children.  
for caring for the least of these!
The picture below is a copy of the thank you card sent to me, 
but meant for all of you that donated or prayed for these children.

The next picture is some of the precious clothing that we collected through our church and 
delivered to our local Rainbow Room, supporting our children in CPS custody. 
So, whether nearby or on the other side of the world, 

Jesus loves the little children of the world 
and He uses our arms, feet and finances to share His love with the world. 

PLEASE Scroll over the words below to see photos of the newsletter
(I couldn't figure out how to post it here)

and if you follow this next link you can see what a difference this assistance made for 
our little girl one year ago when she was the recipient of some of these donations.
(Lia is the sweet one on the right with the big smile in the picture)
and here she is today sharing that big smile with us!
