cleaner water in Congo {a thank you}

AHH! We should have known it already, but God had big plans when He brought our attention to the remote village of Congo where those sweet twins lived and died. If you want the back story, go here.) Our agency asked for only $15,000 to provide clean water and supplies to the orphanage, and I believe they received TWICE that amount. Can you imagine what they can do for kids with that amount of money!? I am beyond thrilled.

WOWZA.

Got this message in my Facebook inbox last week (Thank you so much, J!):

Hey Jenny -

It has been quite a long time! I wanted to send you a message. I had been keeping up with your blog, thanks to [friend]'s facebook links.

I just want you to know that we are praying for you and I want you to know you are such an encouragement to me. Thanks for sharing Christ's love with the world.

I also wanted to let you know that we will be sending a check to All Blessings for clean water. I know that you don't need to know that...but I know the Lord had his hand on this money for All Blessings. In April of this year I was the race director for our third annual 5K for clean water in Uganda. Through a series of events, our partner is now starting over in a different location in Uganda (near Congo), and as of right now, wells are not in the ministry plans for him.

Once I read about Omba and Shako I knew where the money needed to go. So we have a $4,000 check coming in the mail to All Blessings. I know you had posted that you thought the funds were raised, and if so hopefully this will benefit the agency in another way.

I'm thankful for God's plans and how he works things together for His Good. I can't wait to see pictures of your sweet little girl!



We are so blessed and thankful to know such GREAT people. Huge thanks to all of you for your support and interest in what is happening in our lives and in the lives of children you don't even know. We can't wait to introduce you all to Little C!
