I Refuse--The update

Success! Amazing, wonderful, really awesome success!

I am just so pleased to be a part of the story of  Father's House Ghana.  And I am so thankful to my friends and family who caught hold of the vision to help supply the needs for boys they will most likely never meet in this life. 

Here's a picture of all that was collected:

Storage containers, spiral notebooks, composition notebooks, coloring books, threads and lacing to make crafts, ziplock bags, bandaids, medicines, toothpaste...things we take for granted that our family, our children will have whenever they need or want it. 
I imagine Ame' or Gods Way or Evans or any of the 8 precious little boys, being able to put their school supplies away neatly in those storage bins.  I can just see the pride on their faces to have a place to put their things. Can you imagine the laughter and giggles of the boys sitting around coloring together or the love they will feel when Chanda hangs up one of their colorings on the wall?  Let's think a little see God has great plans for these boys.  They will grow up to do great and mighty things.  The ABC's and writing they practice today on those composition notebooks may very well turn into beautifully written, powerful speeches that change the culture of Ghana.  All because a few people from Charlotte NC were generous and gave when they saw a need.
You can meet the boys here.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  This is just the beginning!!
