Gaining Momentum!

After posting about Project Impact on the AWAA yahoo group today there was a generous outpouring of support! Many families have e-mailed their desire to help. We will be doing a large fund raiser at the end of September to raise monies either for shipping product over to Ethiopia or buying supplies in Ethiopia for the transition house and orphanages AWAA works with. My heart is full of praise as God uses his people to take care of these orphans. We are still seeking non-profit status in Ethiopia so this container does not get hit with taxes. One organization is looking into cooperating with us by receiving our shipment in Ethiopia in exchange for us shipping some product for them. We will see if this is possible. Others have suggested other organizations that might be able to help in this area. God will bring in what we need so we can help these little ones who are so vulnerable. We are still looking into where to have the fund raising event. We could use prayer for this. We will keep you posted as the events unfold. We are excited about what God is doing and feel grateful so many others want to join with us as we watch a miracle happen!!
