It’s almost the end of March 2010 and we have been busy. Where does the time go? The kids are doing well, they just got their term report cards and life is moving along.
We’ve been excited and busy for the past couple of weeks here in the US. We are working on the launch of a major fundraiser to build a new girls’ home in Guatemala. The new girls’ home will be just outside the existing orphanage and will be part of the orphanage, yet separate. The land has been cleared and we will soon be building a block wall around the property. That will shield the property from curious drive by/walk by lookers and it will also allow us to deliver and store building materials at the site with less chance of theft.
The fundraiser will be launched on April 8 in Oklahoma City. It will continue for the balance of the year. There will be more fund raising activities in July in Orlando, Florida. After that, Dallas, Texas. Yep… we are hoping that it will be wildly successful. The goal is to raise the $72,400 that’s needed to build a two story home that will house 25 girls.
So…that’s all I can say right now. More news after April 8th. I’m hoping to get some updated pictures of the land and of the concrete blocks and wall. When I get them, I will post them.
Keep your fingers crossed for us. This could be huge!!!!!
Oh… and Happy Spring to you and yours!
