Busy busy busy...

My blog has been neglected...soooo busy! A few events recently that have kept me busy...MY OLDEST BABY IS MARRIED!!! Yep! It was a beautiful wedding and oh so sweet! BUT, I did not know how hard it was going to be on a mommas heart. It's truly something that you can't prepare for. Andrew and Erica will be great together, and it's so precious to watch them ooze that 'new love!'

AND...I have ongoing work for the Forget-Me-Not Children's Program in Liberia, that has been keeping me very busy. One of the desperate needs we have, besides getting more kids sponsored, is the need for our own vehicle in Liberia. We just finished a Rummage Sale at our church...and so many from our church family showed up with wonderful donations and a ton of help! We raised just over $2000! What a great start in raising the $12,000 needed funds!

AND...we have been busy with four new baby alpacas!! One more on the way! The last month has been super insane with these new little ones! They are the cutest animals ever!!!

Continued from day 3

We had the honor of visiting Pastor Peter's village, where he was born, deep into the interior in the bush. This visit was a very special day, it was a day that a water well was being dedicated. Looking at the pics here, you can see us crossing the bridge where they would collect the water for all their needs. It was green and filthy! People and children were always dying from getting illnesses from this water. A couple families from the U.S., took it upon themselves to raise the funds for this well, and we were so honored to be there for this dedication! Someone said we were the first 'white' people to visit this village. This village is very school, no latrines, no drinking water (until this well). The homes are squared huts made of dirt and sticks. The people there are amazing, joyous and dancing for us! You would have thought we gave them a million dollars! It truly humbled me to be among this tribe! What an amazing day we had!
