Thank you, everyone for a great day August 13, 2011

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,

Rachel
