Thank You for The Goats Last Year!

Last year's Christmas Goats have been SUCH a blessing.  They are a gift that will keep on giving.  We've just got news that:

  • None of the goats have been eaten prematurely (no kebabs, lol)
  • All of them are alive and well, except 2 that got sick and we're working to replace them
  • At least 12 of them have had babies already!
The children were soooo excited about and proud of their goats when I visited them this summer.  And when I asked them what they wanted for Christmas this year, they ALL said they wanted another goat! So that is our plan.

We'll be rolling out more information on it this coming month and will be offering sponsors an opportunity to send their child a culturally relevant Christmas present!

The goats are not just a future protein supply, but they also help restore hope and honor to those children who are successfully caring for them and their families.   #TeachAManToFish  #RestoringDignity


We're up to 71 children sponsored now!  The latest, Mr. Kevin, just got sponsored yesterday and now we're looking for a sponsor for Mr. Eric. 

If you or someone that you know is looking for an organization to invest in, where the money that they give toward helping a child really does go to that child, send them our way!  Children can be sponsored online for $40 a month via our secure website, LiftThemUp.org.

Donors will receive an initial photograph, a thank you letter, and information on your child and they will also receive annual personalized updates on their child's progress each year.

100 Sponsored Chidlren by Christmas!

Our goal is to have 100 children sponsored by this Christmas Eve!  What a perfect gift it would be, to bring this kind of life-changing hope to a child in honor of Jesus' birthday!

Not only will the newly sponsored children receive: access to healthcare, an education, hot meals and dried goods sent home with them, hygiene training and supplies, new uniforms and shoes, haircuts every month, school supplies and private tutoring, and Bible teaching, but when they are sponsored they are eligible for a matching gift.

Our matching gift, provided by a generous donor, provides each child, who normally sleeps on the cold ground, with a bed, a blanket, a mosquito net, a wash tub, and a Bible in their heart-language!

Getting news like that would be sure to guarantee a very merry Christmas!  

Thank you so much for your time!  Please be praying for us and the kiddos that we can get 29 into the program by the end of the year!

Blessings on your week,
