SARAH & PAIGE ... "The 25 Project" partners!

Some favorite pics of Sarah and Paige!  They never stopped even with sweltering heat!!! 
 Such an encouragement to Auntie Margaret's orphans, former street boys & 
the special needs students at Hosetta!

Martin and his family have been such a blessing since his first trip to Sweet Salone in October 2013. A few months previously, he had been pondering mission trip opportunities at his church, but they simply were not going to fit into his schedule.  As he was driving in McKinney one day, the Lord impressed upon him to stop by our church just to see what might be available.  The next thing you know, he was preparing to come with one of our teams!  WE LOVE HOW THE LORD WORKS!  Martin is pictured here with one of the Waterloo boys, Mumunu, that his family sponsors.  

All of our team members fall in love with Little Lulu!  She is not one of the orphans at Auntie Margaret's, but her granny has been such a friend and helper to Margaret, 
and Lulu visits the home often, especially when we have TEAMS!   

Kandra made her first trip with her dad to SL in June 2014.  She has stolen everyone's hearts!  Pictured with Ibrahim from Auntie Margaret's and Lulu!

Lulu and some of her friends that live near Auntie Margaret's.

Martin sure knows how to sling a hammer!
Tom has been so blessed to have him to work alongside!

For the first time since Ebola entered Freetown in July 2014, 
we were able to host a team!  
So thankful for
Sarah & Paige representing 25project, McKinney, TX
... and ... 
Martin & his daughter Kandra from FBC Melissa, TX

There was eager anticipation on every side leading up to the team's arrival!!  
These guys are former street boys who are now in caretaker homes and schools!  
This would not be possible without the sponsorship program administered by 25project, 
as well as other families who give toward special needs.

Updated pictures and video will soon be on the way  
to all sponsors of the street guys and Auntie Margaret's orphans! 

We were able to visit FOURTEEN schools spread over a 
wide area in the Waterloo community to see boys and meet their teachers!  
So encouraging! 

Auntie Margaret's kiddos came in groups to our compound 
for some TLC and gifts from their sponsors!  
Cynthia was especially excited! 

Martin was with Tom on the Hosetta School Construction Project!  
He is a ROCK STAR among the staff, kids & Tom's crew! 

Paige spent a morning reviewing Sign Language with the very special kiddos at Hosetta! 

This gave Sarah and Kandra time to assist the guys by hauling cement!  

More updates are on the way!  It sounds like the team took a combined total of 
over 4000 photos!  Looking forward to posting "a few."  

Our gratitude to all who made this possible!!!
