(Red Letters Campaign) Been A While

Time has gotten away from me. I have been very busy lately and haven't been blogging. So busy, that I'm not sure what to blog about because I can't choose any one event.

One of the most exciting things happening lately has to do with Grafted Tree Ministries. Our little rag tag group of families is really starting to pull something together and God is focusing us. We are still in the process of compiling things to acquire our non profit status. We are also networking. In just a few weeks we will sit down with an Ethiopian immigrant pastor who divides his time between here and ET about how me might be able to aid him with garnering sponsorships for the children in his existing orphanage and care facility and raise more funds to be used for building a boarding school and implementing a foster care type system locally. All this is very exciting. We are looking with eyes wide open to see if this project is indeed one that God would have us participate in. I, personally, have high hopes that we will be able to strengthen our relationship with this man.

We are also working on creating a presentation to take with us around local congregations. we hope to spark flames in congregations and encourage more churches to begin their own programs.

In the midst of all this Kim and Julie are both getting really close to travelling to get their kiddos. Kim will leave first, the beginning of June. I don't know exactly when for Julie but before summer is over, I think. Then there's me. Who knows when? But I have lots of fun stuff to keep me occupied while I wait.

Oh, BTW there were 4 referrals given out last week. Two boys, 2 Girls. IT was wonderful!! ;)

It's a bummer that we didn't see the LARGE batch we were expecting but I have high hopes for May. We shall see.....

That is so exciting Jen! What an awesome opportunity to serve God and those kids in Ethiopia! I see big things happening for you guys.

I'm still praying for your sweet little boy out there. I know God is on top of it and eventually the whole plan will be revealed. Hang in there!

Glad to hear from you!!
