Winter Shopping 2012

Sunday, December 2, 2012

Dasha and I took 19 Sparrows Hope kids shopping last Friday at the outdoor clothes market in Gorlovka. Since there were only two of us serving as chaperones it made for a rather long shopping trip, but thankfully it was not below freezing! It is always a fun experience to shop with these guys - and it makes me happy to be able to work with them and share God's blessings with them through our generous sponsors. Thanks to everyone who helps support this ministry. Your generosity is changing lives.

Galina and Sergei recently received Birthday Boxes from their sponsors. Of course, they were very happy and appreciative to receive the gifts. Thanks to all our sponsors who are making a difference in the lives of the Sparrow's Hope kids.


Shopping with (and for) the Sparrow's Hope Kids

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Many of the Sparrow's Hope kids have been at camp most of the summer, but they are trickling back in for the start of school on September 1st. This weekend we took a group of 13 shopping and also took a foster mother and one of the five children she and her husband are raising to buy some furniture and other items for their family. Kostya, one of the guys who live in the dorm without bathing and laundry facilities, dropped off his laundry with me a few weeks ago to wash between trips - it was a walk down memory lane for me to work on his laundry because I could remember the various shopping trips when he purchased all the clothes. It also gave me a great opprotunity to pray for Kostya and his sponser, as well as the other kids and sponsors. The kids all asked me to express their gratitude to their sponsors for your generosity. You are providing great help to these young people and they know that you are showering them with the love of Jesus. Thanks to all who are sponsoring and praying for these young people.


Birthday Box for Albina

Sunday, May 27, 2012

When I arrived in Gorlovka last week there was a birthday box waiting for me to deliver to Albina. This afternoon Albina (and Tanya) came by the house to pick up her present. She was thrilled to receive her gifts. Thanks to all our sponsors who provide for the children in the Sparrow's Hope program.


Great Week In Gorlovka

Monday, March 26, 2012

Last Thursday I took Kostya and Denis and we traveled to all the dormitories that the Sparrow's Hope kids live in and passed out flyers about the shopping trip for Saturday. We only found a few kids, most were not at the dorms. I contacted a couple of others through social media. On Saturday we took 16 of the kids shopping for Spring (and some more Winter) supplies. They all had a great time and are so appreciative for the blessings their sponsors provide.

Four other kids (Tanya, Albina, Dima and Ruslan) live with a foster family in town and they already had their Spring clothes purchased. The mother asked me about purchasing a wardrobe unit for their entry way and a bicycle for the kids. I agreed with that idea and she purchased the wardrobe and will get the bicycle tomorrow.

Thanks to all our sponsors who make it possible to provide needed supplies to these children. I can promise you that your gifts are making a difference in their lives.


Shopping with the Kids

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

We recently took the Sparrow's Hope Kids shopping. This shopping trip was dedicated to buying items for the winter. Most of the kids bought jackets, shoes, jeans, sweatsuits, personal items and socks. Thanks to our sponsors who make it possible to provide for these kids. We are really enjoying having many of the kids come to the worship room quite often.

Recenlty we were able to share two birthday boxes with Sparrow's Hope Kids! Sergei and Galina both received their packages and were so thankful for the generosity of their sponsors. The pictures say it all...

Thanks to all our sponsors who are sharing their love and their blessings with these children. Your generosity is changing lives.
