I made a few more things on my Cricut. My first birthday card for a mini friend and a lovely little box for my 12 year old granddaughter who loves music and plays the flute. Just having fun and the little birthday words cut out so nice this will be the idea for making tiny minis sigs! I made a dad's folding card popout but I messed it up so it's all glued down, but the glue I had didn't stick well Oh well..live and learn! I just love butterflies so I just did a simple one!
No this is not mini related...it's part of the "more" on my blog!
YES!!! I took my first oversea missions trip to Kenya, Africa for 10 days with a fantastic leader and group of folks. Our team S.T.A.R. Kenya started out from my church in Olean, NY and we had 3 more folks join us one from Georgia and two from Florida. it was to help out at an orphanage where they bring in children have been found begging on the streets because either one or more of their parents have dies of AIDS and have no means care. Much poverty and death from AIDS.
The Orphanage is "Quest for Happiness" where a pastor and his wife laid down their lives to help orphaned children. There are 40 healthy kids being fed, schooled and clothed.
We built desks, cabinets for the class rooms, sorted the kids clothes so they each had their own in a bin or suit case and brought them toys, made a tether ball set, played with them, taught some fun crafts, sang with them and sponsored many of them!!!
We loved to hear them sing!!!
What a joy and what a heartbreak when we left. I hope I will see them again!
This little girl, Salome... that stole my heart!!!
She's our daughter in Kenya
The children would gather by the flag pole and sing worship songs
before class WOW! can they sing!
Blogger won't let me up load the video too large wish I could share it with you!

I am a born again Christian.
I love the Lord Jesus and grateful that He loves me and saved me 37 years ago. I am active in my church and have been married to a wondeful caring man for 47 years! God has blessed me with a wonderful family- a son and a daughter both married serving the Lord and now 7 lovely grandkids. God is good!
