Thank you for another successful fundraiser for the projects in Malawi August 2013! We are so grateful to our sponsors and our sewers and all that attended or sent items for the auction. We had a surprise visit by The King of Rock N Roll, Elvis himself which added a lot of fun to the evening. Everyone really had a good time. “El Kabong” the band out did themselves and kept the dance floor full! Thank you one and all!!!!
One incredible opportunity has come up as a result of the auction. Two of our best supporters from Louisville, KY, not only came up with goodies for the auction, but brought two gorgeous canvas paintings for auction. The artist, Fifi LeFan, was moved by the pictures of the children in little dresses, that she painted two gorgeous paintings. We displayed them at the auction although a better place would have been an art show. The starting bid is $300 although by this artist, similar paintings have reported sales of $1500. We are thinking we may put them out for bid to those who have the heart and decor for such works of art. More details will follow. I’ll post pictures here and also under “Various Events” from the Sock Hop.
Because of your generosity we are very close to raising the money for all the projects we are wanting to do in August. We will be feeding kids, teaching, opening a well, two medical mission days, and distributing thousands of dresses and hundreds of Buckets of Hope. We will also be repairing hut roofs for widows and child-headed families. Your generosity changes lives and we’re so grateful! Thank you so much!!!
Save the date for this year’s FUN Fundraiser. JUNE 15, 2013 we will be rocking around the clock at a SOCK HOP! Get your poodle skirts ready and your leather jackets out of storage! Details to follow soon!!! Auction items accepted starting now!!! Thank you!

Six months is an amazing record of some kind for deciding to send a container, collecting enough to fill a 40ft truck, raising the money to pay for shipping, arranging the paperwork with the right contacts to ship and closing the doors on this amazing project. SOOOOO many of you made it possible from the very beginning. Auctions, fund raisers, school supplies, carrying items to my house, to the warehouse, packing boxes, loading the truck, riding an elephant, working a carnival…the list goes on and on. But, the container is on its way! To God be the glory! Today is the proposed ship date out of New York. It should arrive in Malawi, Africa in March to be unloaded by the team in April 2012. The joy that the items will bring is hard to imagine, but I’ll do my best to take lots of pictures. Thank you all so much for making this happen!
Many thanks to you all for an outstanding Back to School With Laura the Elephant. The rain held off, just as we had prayed for, and left us with a bright, sunny and perfect day, full of all kinds of games, great music, great food from The Market, great items for the Silent Auction and of course amazing and exciting elephants rides, by our star of the day: Laura! Because of your generosity, we raised a total of $12,700 to date and checks are still coming in. With that day and other projects for the container, we will get the money for the container and hopefully ship it late this year. Many, many thanks for the generous donations of school supplies. Conne and I boxed them up last night, and not only were we thrilled with the amount, we were also thrilled with the high quality and variety of so many supplies. The children will be so blessed by your generosity. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!!! Pictures for your enjoyment. And special thanks to that cute Safari guy on the elephant with me. You have no idea how much he sacrifices and gives for this ministry. Thank you, Michael!
Love to you all,
