We are Blessed!

A group of four of us are leaving on April 27 for a 10 day mission trip to Soddo, Ethiopia to visit CCC.  I am very excited to be going and I am looking forward to visiting and playing with the children and working with the CCC staff.  We have several projects planned:  repairing the sheep fence to keep the mean hyenas away from the sheep, learning to make fodder for the sheep and teaching the older kids how to make it, building shoe peg boards so the kids have a neat place to store their shoes, and installing automatic shut off faucets in the bathrooms.

Today, as I was beginning to organize supplies and pack for the trip, I opened the boxes of clothes that I had received from the wonderful women at Hemmed in Prayer, Phenix City, Alabama and members of the Grace Memorial Church in New Braunfels, Texas. To my surprise and delight, I found 200 beautifully hand sewn dresses from Hemmed in Prayer.  The dresses are  size 4 to size 8 and will thrill many girls at CCC in the next year.

I also found over 50 new tee shirts from members of the Grace Memorial Church.  They have consistently donated shirts to us over the last three years.  The children love getting new shirts.

Aerie Africa and CCC are blessed to have so many supporters.  We appreciate the generosity of many people.  We could not provide such a loving nest to our children without your support.

Please keep us in your prayers as we set out on our journey to Ethiopia.

Blessings,
