A Tea Party

When you consider the power of a 7-year old. . . . well, she can accomplish a lot. But, combine that power and energy with a second little 7-year old, just look what happens.

Emily and Ali are best friends and they decided that they wanted to do something to help our orphans in Burkina. So, they formed the idea of having a ‘tea party’ and inviting their friends and their friends’ moms to come for an afternoon of fun and fellowship.

Well, somehow the idea grew and grew until many people were involved and as a result, these little girls raised over $2000 plus are sending 100 dolls and 70 soccer balls to our children in Burkina.

What a blessing these toys will be to our children! And what a blessing it is to see the Lord sewing his seeds of love in these little missionary hearts. Jesus hears the children when they pray and we cherish your prayers.

Thank you Emily and Ali! And thanks to all of the moms and friends in Benton, KY who helped to make this ‘little idea’ such a huge success.
