Garrett's Heart....

Are you thankful for clean water, a variety of nutritional food to eat and good medical care?


Ice Cream Money!

Posted by Robin Laney on December 5, 2010 at 11:22 PM Comments comments (1)

I wonder if the people of Zadecha Island, Ethiopia have ever had ice cream....The kids in Harrisburg, NC sure have and they get to enjoy it often as a treat at school.  So, Garrett and Tia's teacher organized a fundraiser for the Zay people in which the kids sacrifice their ice cream treats to help the people have clean water and medical care.  The entire 1st grade and a fourth grade class are involved with a goal of $500.  So far, they have raised well over $300!  And there's more ice cream to be sacrficed!  Awesome!!!

Thank you, kids, for helping kids just like you have life!

What an incredible Garage Sale!!!  God is so Cool and He used a bunch of really generous people who gave of their time, energy, stuff and money to build the mother of all garage sales and then He brought droves of people to buy the stuff and we now have......

$2,172.35 for Zadechu Island!!!

Absolutely incredible and beyond my wildest imaginations.

Thankful for Water Bills Campaign

Posted by Robin Laney on October 10, 2010 at 9:06 PM Comments comments (1)

How often do you thank God for your water bill....or your water, for that matter?  I don't think we ever have!

In November we are asking families to pray for the people of Zadechu Island and their physical and spiritual needs and...

commit to match your November water bill amount (or more) with a donation towards the building of a medical clinic and well on the island.  Two wells are already paid for and the survey process has begun through Water is Life International.  They need a third well and are in desperate need, also, of medical care on the island.  It is estimated that a solar-powered medical clinic can be built and stocked along with a well for about $50,000.  Sounds like a lot but our God is HUGE!

A little goes a long way and if we all give a little we can do a lot!  In fact, $20 provides water for 1 person for 20 years!  Twenty dollars=twenty years!

Will you and your family help?  If so, please contact us through this site so we can give updates on projected amounts.

We can't wait to see what God does!!!  Dive in!
