Well, in just a few weeks I am going (again), with 5 other women, to “sing” in Ethiopia. We will take medical supplies, hygiene items, clothing, school supplies, we can love them and play with them, we can take the time and “sing” for them.

 “we will fight, not out of spite
for someone must stand up for what is right
cause where there’s a (child) who has no voice
there ours shall go singing...” Jewel (hands)

Well, in just a few weeks I am going (again), with 5 other women, to “sing” in Ethiopia! Most of us can’t sing like Jewel... But we can “sing” for the children who have no voice, we can “sing” for the children of Africa, we can “sing” for the orphans... we can take much needed medical supplies, hygiene items, clothing, school supplies, we can love them and play with them, we can take the time and “sing” for them...

Sadly, there is no mail system in this country. There is no way to send these things other than to carry them with us as we go... we want to take as many 18 gallon totes as we can. The cost per tote is about $150.00 . We are also planning a swimming field trip for the special needs kids (cerebral palsy, autism, down’s syndrome etc.). We want to take them to a hot springs pool, which is not only fun, it is very therapeutic. The cost of this outing is about $500.00 (renting the pool, lunch for the kids, and transportation)... and worth every single penny. SO... I am asking for your help. Our trip is paid for, our supplies are being purchased, our bags are packed, we are ready to go, but we need some serious cash to get the totes on that plane, and to pull off the field trip! I am asking... can you help? Would you want to sponsor the cost of shipping a tote? Would you want to purchase supplies? Would you want to pay for part of the swimming day? Would you please, please pray for our trip... for health, for safety, for all of the people we come into contact with, and our families at home. Pray that we show who Jesus is, that we are helpful and not in the way. Pray that we are responsible, and that we can make a difference. If you do want to contribute somehow just let me know and i can send the info to you!

Thanks again... please keep us in your thoughts and prayers... the dates are March 13th - 23rd.
