Give A Backpack

This is Very Last Minute - But it's not going to stop me from moving forward! I was privileged to be a part of a team that went to Ethiopia in Dec-Jan 2014 and was blessed with meeting my sponsor child and amazing young boy named Nebiyu! While we were there I saw the amazing relationship these children have with God and each other!!! i was touched to the depth of my heart and fell in love with the country and the people i met!! After meeting Nebiyu I wanted to find him a backpack sooo BAD. It wasn't easy to find as we had an itinerary and stopping to shop for a backpack wasn't on the schedule. The second to the last day I was able to purchase a backpack and was so excited to give it to Nebiyu!! He was one of the only kids to rcv one and he was the "talk of the group"! When I left I was crying and Nebiyu came to wipe my tears. He said "Sadie - don't cry because you WILL BE BACK!!" I said, "I am not sure - this is up to God." He said, "well God answers prayers because I prayed for a backpack and you gave me a one. So I am sure you will be back!!" The faith of a child is magnificent and I am on my way back! I leave Friday July 18 and HAVE FAITH GOD WILL PROVIDE SEVERAL MORE BACKPACKS!! PLEASE MAKE A DONATION. I SAW WHAT A DIFFERENCE A BACKPACK CAN MAKE!
