Update on the orphans…
Igor, Roman, Naim, Valery, Galina, Maxim, Alexander, Daniel, Anastasia K., Anastasia M., and Natalia are hoping for the best.
We want to send off each of these graduating orphans with a “Life Starter Kit” — comforts of home that they won’t be able to take with them: A blanket, a pillow, and bed linens, pots and pans, and if we can, an iron and a tea kettle.
(Here’s my full photo report on the orphans, from a few days ago.)
At this writing, 17 households have responded with generous gifts of support. Would you also be able to help?
* Your gift of $54.59 today provides a blanket, a pillow, and bed linens for one orphan.
* Your gift of $91.69 today enables us to include pots and pans.
If we receive more than the total we need for all 11 orphans, we’ll include irons and tea kettles too.
If there’s still a surplus, we’ll give Life Starter Kits to 5 other orphans who aren’t aging out but will also be leaving the Children’s Village (switching schools, etc.).
God bless you for any gift of compassion you can give today! Thanks for journeying with us! Much love, Doug Brendel
