friends


We have been so busy we haven't had time to write about all our doings until today!! On September 26th, we loaded up the VW van with quilts, hygiene kits and school kits and a box of bath soap to deliver to the new home purchased for the children from Ficksburg. Remember the 32 kids who lived in a shack? Well, a home was purchased by a wonderful woman from Canada and the children were to be brought 'home' on the 28th. With some money Sister Parmley gave us from her foundation (rich friends), we bought a refrigerator, a set of cooking pans and some food for the children. We unloaded everything from the van and were so excited to see the home and property that will be conducive to help the children thrive. We stopped by to see them on Saturday and they had smiles on their faces, light in their eyes and were excited to show us their rooms.

What a touching story. It is so exciting to hear those quilts and hygiene kits we make are going to such beautiful people and are so appreciated.
