We want to bless Solomon and His family in a few weeks-Want to help?
Many people have asked me what they can give us to take to Solomon and his precious family-here are ideas-we hope to be able to bless them with at least a large suitcase full of items! Ethiopia's Christmas is Jan 9th-so we will get there right before and wouldn't it be great to give his family a Christmas to remember this year?! We are going through our house finding stuff to send and will buy some too-We are praying we get that Dec. 13th embassy date(we hope to know this week)
TOYS/SCHOOL SUPPLIES: (not sure how much English they read yet-but between them going to school and Solomon's English, should be able to read some for a game or something, bucket of regular legos, puzzle, soccer ball-or any balls, math activity books/flash cards backpacks, crayons, markers, glue, paper, tape, colored pencils, pens, notebooks, pencils, pencil box, etc.
BOYS CLOTHES: SHOES size 3 and 4-1/2 / sweatshirts ages 12 & 8 -(very thin build though but tall)/baseball hats, underwear, socks, t-shirts, pants
SOLOMON: -my height, prob 100-lbs, underwear/boxers, socks, undershirts & t-shirts-size med, tennis shoes he said size 8-(I am checking on this), pants
WIFE: (very thin, but an inch or so taller than me-tennis shoes: size 7-1/2 and any clothes size med.(sweater), underwear, socks, sports bra, pants-elastic waist
ANY TOILETRIES:-soap, shampoo, deodorant, lotion, toothbrushes/toothpaste, shaving cream, maxi-pads, Advil-adult/children's, Neosporin, Band-Aids, cold/cough med, body towels/washrags/hand towels, dish towels, bed sheets-twin & queen, small fan and small heater-electric
FOOD: peanut butter, rice, dried beans/peas, dried fruit, nuts, granola bars, oatmeal, sugar, flour, cheerios, tuna, candy, chocolate
MONEY-obviously is good too-it costs him $25 a month/per boy to send the boys to school-would love to get enough to send them for a year ($300 year/each).

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
