School Supply Smiles

Due to the kindness and generosity of friends, family and our home church- Main Street United Methodist- a lot of sorting and organizing has been going on this week at Egbe School! In September you responded to our request quickly, and tenaciously filled my parents living room with an array of school supply needs!  Now after a long seven month journey the supplies begin bringing joy to Egbe School and the entire community.  So much was donated I have been able to share with our hospital staff, local children, CARE Africa orphans, and even kid patients!  Thank you so much for allowing us to be on the receiving end of so many smiles, hope these pictures will allow you to share in this joy!

Small child badly burned from a house fire. I promise she was happy, she was just scared of the strange “Oyinbo” (white person).
