Handshaking -Children Caring for the Children

I am so thankful for the many, many people who share in the work of caring for the orphans of Burkina!  Some are called to go, some are called to send, and all are called to pray!  Our God uses each and every one of us to accomplish His will!

Today I want to tell you a very sweet story about an amazing young woman, Becky Verrips, who
recently spent some time with us in Yako loving and caring for our babies. 

When Becky returned home she told to her pastor, her church, her family and friends about her work here in Burkina and consequently her church agreed to make Sheltering Wings their mission emphasis for their summer Vacation Bible School.

There were about 120 people in attendance each night and part of the fun was a competition between the girls and boys to see who could bring in the most money for the orphanage.  In total, the children raised $851.76 for the orphanage. 

Thank you, Pastor Ray Hoke, and Bethel Church for this gift of love!  Thank you children of Bethel Church for praying for and giving to the children of Burkina!
