Christmas is Coming!

DSC_0721

Christmas is coming friends and we’ve been busy getting ready to celebrate with all the kids in the center!  I’m getting things organized for my 34 gorgeous little bundles.  They are so delighted with everything they get, it is easy to bless them!

Would you like to participate in making their day special?  You can sponsor one of my cutie pies for their Christmas gift with a donation of $20.

This year, we’ve been so blessed with donations of enough clothes and shoes (and a few things I’ve bought and tucked away throughout the year) that we are all set for their new outfit!  Praise God for generous people!

So your gift of $20 would bless them with a special Christmas gift bag of goodies as well as some Dorm Gifts (skateboards, soccer balls, mini badminton, etc). 

If you would like to sponsor one of my boys, you can leave a comment here, or email me at Lauraleighanderson@hotmail.com or contact me on facebook.  I will send you a photo of your special little guy!

A little gift goes a long way!

We just had three lovely ladies and their three cool teenage sons here from England.  Because of their sons’ ages, they wanted to adopt our dorm.  While they spent time in all the areas of the ministry, we were the blessed focus of their attention!

I don’t have photos of all the things they did but I do have some.  They left a leaving gift of a bag for each boy – and they didn’t forget even one! – a sure way to a little boys’ heart, a plastic bag of goodies with his name on it!

They also came prepared with precut triangles to make bunting for the boys’ rooms.  Each boy got to paint his hands and then put his handprints on two triangles, then they sewed the whole thing together.  The boys were delighted!  (now to get them up high enough on the walls they can’t be pulled down by mischievous hands!).  This had gone along with a  teaching they had prepared teaching the boys, “you are special” and uniquely created.

Thanks so much Jo and Jo and Lisa and Noah and Jonti and Jacob!  You were a wonderful blessing with your gifts, supplies, your hearts and love and energy!

Everyone needs a Guard Cat!

I’ve been working on arranging the boys outfits for Christmas and needed to step away but didn’t want them to be seen.  So I threw a capulana over the whole mess.  A few minutes later, the crowning touch arrived to settle in – Guard Cat Antonio!  The boys would never try and peek now!  They will just have to wait!
