I had briefly met Emma almost 2 years ago now but was able to really connect with her this past week when I visited her parents in Pennsylvania. I think that all 8 yr olds are really special but Emma falls at the top of my special list.
Recently on her own initiative, Emma and two of her friends sold cookies and lemonade at a family yard sale. Emma decided that she was giving her share of the money earned to Sheltering Wings! Her parents promised to match what she earned and they have sent a check to help with the cost of milk for the children in our orphanage.
How great it is when the American children reach out and care for the African children who are in need! Thank you Emma for helping us to take care of our children. May the Lord richly bless you and your family for the way that you are helping the children in Burkina.
