I hope this finds you all well. Just wanted to catch everyone up on the IChooseYou activities during the past several weeks.
I met up with Haley during the month of October and she had a suitcase that a team member from a Houston team gave her to give to me. WHAT A SURPRISE...the IChooseYou ladies that Darby had worked with in May had been busy. In the suitcase was 100 BEAUTIFUL PILLOW CASES that the ladies had made along with several of the book bags. We are so proud of them...they are working so hard and their work is beautiful. Darby looked like one proud momma when she opened the bag! If you are interested in a wonderful Christmas gift....the "Travel Pillowcases" are for sale in the church office!
Rachel Gober, one of our 2010 team members, hosted a benefit in Dallas the weekend before Thanksgiving. We had so much fun and we did get a few more sponsors! Thank you Rachel and thank you to the new members of the IChooseYou family!
Andrew and Haley left on Dec. 1 to spend a week in Namatala, Uganda. Haley was not able to go with us in May so she and Andrew decided to go now....how excited she was to be able to share her heart with Andrew! They will be loving on the kiddos, having a dinner with the kids and the parents, checking on the "pig farm" and meeting with the "sewing club" ladies. I know that they will have great pictures and stories to share with us. Please keep them in your prayers!!
We will be making our plans in the next several weeks for our May/June 2011 trip(s)...sponsors, if you are interested in going, please let me know. How special it is to get to know your kiddo....what a blessing for you and for child. You can email my.... firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you are interested.
I hope all of you are peacefully getting ready for CHRISTmas. What a wonderful time of year....aren't we blessed!!! Sometimes it is hard to say that we are....life is not easy but all we have to do is look around us, love our families, help our children in Uganda and love, remember, thank and praise our Lord for His love for us. Remembering that we are celebrating the birth of our Saviour....makes us KNOW just how blessed we are!!
Thank each one of you for choosing to be a part of the IChooseYou family....you are such a blessing!
I will write again soon....Merry CHRISTmas to you,
