Hands across the water…

Thanks so much to folks that are sending in pledges and donations…I got a call from Will Lotter today telling me DRCS just pledged another $300…just the amount that the Mabo orphanage needed for food. Sue Ann emailed me that she would donate $100 today, just what I expect to spend tomorrow printing flyers to give young girls telling them about the hotline designed to serve restaveks (children sold into slavery) and girls who have suffered abuse. I didn’t know when I left home that I would have access to this resource, and now we have the money to do the printing! Another ten dollar pledge came in today…enough to buy two skeins of yarn for the teenage girls at the orphanage…just what they asked for a few days ago (it took us a few days to find a place to buy them!). It seems amazing to me, how our daily needs are being met by those of you back home…thanks so much…it just feels like you are right here - reaching out and helping. Thank you so very much.
