{Day 4}

I opened my mailbox (well email…) yesterday and found a note that left a huge smile on my face.  The sweet lady that I am in contact with at Warm Blankets informed me that she was chatting with someone at Indian office.  They were telling the children in the orphan homes about this project.  Theses darling little children are praying for this project!!!

Some of the children got to go to the beach for the first time this last week so hopefully I will be able to show you pictures soon. 🙂  Do you remember your first trip to the beach or have you ever been?  I am sure the delight on their faces was beautiful.  Too bad I couldn’t have been there since this outfit looks sea worthy!

Money raised: $625

Update: Here is a picture of the trip to the beach.  Thankfully this home is sponsored so they have the opportunity to do this but many are not sponsored and struggle to continue running.  Your donations go towards homes that are not sponsored.

    I love what you’ve done with the dress thus far and can’t wait to see what else you do! And congratulations on raising $500 so far!! I’ll continue praying for you and your journey and the children. 🙂

        Yes! 🙂

        Let me tell you that you are such an inspiration! I’ve been telling people about your project and I’m going to pray for you and the orphan children. May our Father God bless you more abundantly than you can dream!

    Thanks for sharing about this ministry! And you are so pretty. I love how you are getting creative in accessorizing the dress.

    I went to the donation site through the link you have here. It counts toward your goal automatically, right? Or do I need to notify you separately?

    Keep it up, girl! With God’s help, you can do this. 🙂

      Thank you for your sweet comments Rebekah. My friends are definitely helping me style this dress! Christa (the photographer) helped with these outfits. 🙂
      Yes it does count automatically but I don’t know who gave money unless you approve for me to see your info in the comment box on the giving page.
      And yes God is the one who does it!!!
