A challenge….are you in?

December 1, 2010

Someone wrote today from TX.  They are willing to match $1000.oo to help families like the one below.  They are giving us 24 hours to meet this goal.  What a huge blessing it would be to bless many families this Christmas season.  I would love it!  Madelene is eating!  Today we gave her a plate of rice with chicken.  She looked at me and said “you are only giving me one plate I need two”  She is a fighter.  We are hoping and praying that her body will be able to recover.  Ready set go!  8:20pm (Haiti time)

Week #4

I am amazed by these 4 girls and how quickly they have changed in 4 weeks!  Daphna (farthest on the left side) still has swelling in her feet.  She will take several more weeks to fully recover.  Thank you Meds and Food for Kids for making the wonderful product of medika mamba. Thank you World Wide Village for coming along beside us and taking on this fund-raising project for us.  Thank you–Thank you so much to the Livesay Family for all the fund-raising and running you have done to save so many kids lives already.  Tara and Brittany are running a 1/2 marathon soon and are raising funds to purchase more medika mamba.  Help them reach their goal —read their post here or better yet donate here  to save the lives of malnourished kids in Haiti.
