We had our first work session last night at the new facility. Energy was high! We got it done! It was so wonderful to see how everyone worked together and how excited everyone was. We had our honored guests from Kentucky. We had new people, “first-timers” as we like to call them, regular’s, irregulars…you name it! It rocked the house. Thank you to everyone who continues to make this happen. Big thanks to Carole, who stayed all day in a cold place, waiting for DTE to show up so we’d all have heat last night. Special thanks to my husband, Michael, who takes the boxes over there every day and the empty boxes out. He’s a quiet, behind the scenes, dedicated WIND BENEATH MY WINGS! I can’t thank you all enough!
Below is a note that I received from Malawi and it breaks my heart every time I read it. Please continue to help these kids. Don’t ever start thinking that it doesn’t make a difference. It really does! She writes this letter to me, but you all know, that this letter is to every one of us! Thank you and God bless you!
Love and thanks,
Honestly, I have run out of words, I can not imagine the heart that God gave you. You are able to help even those you have never seen.Blessed are those hands that giveth and than those that taketh. Rachel I have receive the box that you sent me. As I am writing you I have it with me. To me it is a miracle.There is a verse in the bible which says God make a way where there is no way.To be honest I never expected such a thing to my opharns.You know sometimes I could seat down, look at the kids shed tears thinking of what can I do to help these poor little souls.Sometime I could look at a child, his stomach safeguard by ribs you can count. Naked kids, I could look at his/her face older than his/her age. I then could cry that what can I do.I sometime could have un unswered questions, to say why did I start this thing that I can’t manage to help.But something could tell me God will make away which indeed He has.thanks God my kids will never walk out naked again. May God bless Naomi also for the good heart that she has, by introducing me to you. Rachel I salute you.I will keep on praying for you and I wish you prosperity so that African children should benefit from you.I will tell the children (opharns) that from today stop worrying, God has given them a mother and her name is Rachel.You are a mother to many.When giving out these dresses I will take some pictures so that you can see the kids.I only want to organize shorts for boys then I will give them.
May God bless you abundantly.
