Gracious gifts



We just wanted to give everybody an update on the donations. We have now receieved 194 pairs of shoes and we don't even know how many pairs of socks. Before we ship them we will get you the exact total. This week we received boxes from Gretchen (Tennessee), Susan (Florida) and Greta (Florida). Also, we have already received 39 packages of sleepers and pajamas for next month's donation. The outpouring of love is unbelievable. We thank you all so much for helping to change the lives of these children!

Another blessing we received this week is that someone has graciously offered to donate the money that it costs for us to print the cookbooks. So now you know that 100% of the money we raise will go to the orphans of Kazakhstan. Wow, God is so good!!
