Auntie Margaret's Kiddos!

Margaret's kiddos are happy and healthy as they are now in their 3rd year of school and have sufficient food for the family! Their smiles say it all!!!  Three are in college, another is in a tech school for electrical, and we have the potential of 4 more in college or skills within the next 2 years! These kids are amazing as they function as a family in every possible way, from Omaru leading devotionals and prayer time each morning at 5:30, to various chores and cooking, to helping the younger ones with school. What a great bunch!!

Our special friend, Jon!

It was our privilege to stumble onto Jon in May of 2008 when teammate Brooke saw neighborhood guys terrorizing this very special boy.  He has become quite famous among our teams, and our construction project for Hosetta School for Kiddos with Special Needs came into being largely because of him! We look forward to the day that the school will transition into a boarding facility with a snazzy dormitory and dining hall!!!   

Happy New Year!!

With just 14 days left until we hop on the plane for HOME, we look with anticipation to all that God has planned for 2014! Only HE knows every detail!

  • Waterloo Street Boys - 23 were placed in homes throughout 2013 and began school in September, some for the very first time! Our hope by February 1st is to have an additional 15 boys placed! For the original 23 boys, a 3 day camp is set for Feb 1-3 to continue to pour into the guys and to assure them of our commitment to see that they have every opportunity for success! A team of 11 (TX & Mississippi) will arrive Jan 31, and will minister to the street boys, Margaret's orphans and our precious kiddos with special needs!  Can't wait!
More updates to come! Thank you for your prayers and support as we represent YOU in Sweet Salone!
