Kind hearts and Trees of Glory

A team of 16 people will be heading to Ethiopia in November to minister to the children at both Kind Hearts and Trees of Glory carepoints. This trip is very important to our family because of our ties to Ethiopia, our sponsored child at Kind Hearts and because our good friends from Sheridan are traveling to do construction projects at both care points.

The need is real. Most of the children being helped at these two carepoints are orphans. At Trees of Glory, many of the children have been sold for $12/year to work as sheep and goat herders. These could have been our kids. Gavin started tending sheep at the age of 3- can you imagine being out all day with only a stick for protection in an area with several kinds of big cats? As we toured the Minot Zoo yesterday, this became a reality to me,as I watched my son look at the lions behind the cage bars. Young children in Ethiopia have no bars to protect them from the wild animals as they work all day without food or water.

My friends from Sheridan will be doing construction projects at both care points. They will be helping construct classroooms, get clean water wells and anything else to make the facilities safer for the children they minister to. Would you join us in helping provide funding for these projects? Look at Gavin's picture at the top of my blog and try to invision him out tending sheep by himself...and then give.

If you're interested in helping with finances with this trip, go to, click on GIVE, enter the dollar amount and specify ET101101T-PROJECTS. Please leave me a comment to tell me that you donated and I will let the team know. Again, the need is real. These kids need our help and the people traveling in November are going to be the hands and feet of Jesus to them.
