Water play

My kids wanted to play with water, I don’t think this is what they had in mind! Hahahaha!

A Day on the Horse Farm

Today we took our special friends to a horse farm, Cai de Vis! We had a wonderful time! Little “V” can’t walk and can’t use his right hand, but he really wanted to ride on the horse. The joy on his face was so precious.

A sweet woman named Vasilica, who works at the farm coordinating groups, refused to let us pay for our time at the farm and for our lunch. She was a blessing to us and we pray that God will continue to bless her and her family! We took the kids and their carers out for ice cream on the way home with the money not spent and will be able to do an extra event with them.

I want to give a special thank you to the children at Gulfhaven Mennonite Church in Gulfport, Mississippi. During VBS this past June, they raised enough money to pay for the bus to take us all to the farm! Thank you Children!!! You are great!

Thank you to my sweet friend Anca who joined us and pushed “V” up all the hills and all over the farm in his wheelchair! You rock!!

We had a great time riding the horse, watching a mini horse show and playing in the forest. We were able to take all of the children out today, which isn’t always possible because of their disabilities. It was a great blessing to be able to do this! Cai de Vis is definitely on our list of places to go back to!!!!

Christmas Shoeboxes

It may only be August but we are busy planning Christmas! I have gotten about 120 children sponsored for Christmas boxes. I still have a handful of boys and girls over the age of 12,if any one is interested in sponsoring an individual child.

While we can and do pass out boxes for all ages, we are specifically in need of boxes for boys over the age of 12. I don’t know why, but the majority of those in the orphanages are teen boys. These boxes don’t need to be big. The boys are happy with toiletries with a body spray, cans of chips, snacks, a pack of cards, and of course, candy!

We have children of all ages, so boxes for boys and girls of all ages are welcome!

Here is the link to a short promo video. Feel free to share at church and on social media!
