            Thursday, Liberty in the Spirit wired us a "cash gift" to help with our children's outreach in Africa!! WOW !! So today I got up early early early and went to the shops and got food and toys and took them to the school in the Squatter Camp.We also took along the plates, cups and bowls. Oh my gosh, we left  with the entire school in 7th Heaven!!! There was such rejoicing. I have never seen children soooooooo happy!!!

             The entire school lined up in long lines in anticipation. First we gave them each their Christmas stocking filled with sweets. Then came a second line. This time they all  got a cold drink and something to eat. Then came the third time they lined up and each one was given a toy! Oh boy oh boy oh boy! Some of these children, most of them , had never had a toy before in their life!  We gave each one a bottle of bubbles. They had never blown bubbles before. It was so much fun teaching them and so beautiful to see hundreds of bubbles all over the school and out side in the yard around the school  the children were blowing bubbles.  It was a sight to see!I thought when I was driving home, I bet GOD was just so pleased to look down and see this beautiful sight, his creation playing and so happy amidst a cloud of bubbles!

              I took a friend to help me.  He was absolutely shocked. He said he has never seen such poverty in his life. Many of the children looked like they had never bathed before - obviously because there is no water. The only water tank there is a box with a spiked they use for the school.  I think I told you last time about the non-existent toilets, they just dig a hole and when it is full, they dig another one, then put a little metal frame around it.

             WE HAVE TO HELP THEM WITH DECENT TOILETS and they have a bore hole but cannot get the water, they need a pump put in.  This another prayer need! They need almost $500 to purchase the water pump and have someone hook it up to work. We were also able to give each of the 8 volunteer teachers a beautiful gift and each of the men workers 4 of them a special treat too! So it was a glorious day!!

             I spoke to Roger Williamson who told me  a couple  projects where there is an opportunity to feed 1700 children who have NOTHING to eat each day. I am investigating this as I feel very led to help! There is such a need here in Africa to help these precious children!

            We contacted Anita Cruel who has a foundation in memory of her son.The William F. Cruel Jr. Foundation. She is having a book drive to help purchase text books for the school we have currently adopted. IMAGINE HAVING A SCHOOL AND HAVING NO BOOKS! THANK GOD WE WERE ABLE TO HELP WITH PENCILS AND PENS AND SCISSORS AND STUFF. BUT THESE PEOPLE HAVE HAD NOTHING. JUST EMPTY ROOMS. AND THEY ARE HOT AT THAT!! BUT FULL OF CHILDREN WHO WANT TO LEARN, WANT TO BE TAUGHT, WILLING TO  LISTEN, AND WANT TO MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF THEIR LIVES..

            I just have to help them!! They are soooooooooooooo precious! And JESUS loves them! And I know you do toooo! We surely need your help with this project. We are so grateful to the Lemings who sent funds to buy the plates, cups, and bowls so they can have at least one meal a day - soup which my friend makes for them. THANK YOU EVA AND HAROLD!!

          Now please consider helping at this Christmas time with TOYS or help sponsor school supplies, this school has 200 children. There are soooo many children and so many schools in this country who need help! I was given a prophetic word in the year 2001 at Rick Del Rios church in New York during our GROUND ZERO OUTREACH, that GOD was going to show me a need in Africa. It would be like with a big telescope and He would focus on that need, and I would see it. Then  I would tell it to other people so they can help, are you one of them???

          Before my daughter went to Heaven she visited the townships here and said how she wished she could help the children - she loved the children here. Our TREASURES FOR TOTS AND TEENS program  is in Memory of ANNA BERRY my daughter. Here is our website project:
                                              http://www.sondraberryyoung.org/t4t/index.html
          I invite all of you who knew her to keep her memory alive by helping our projects to children over here in South Africa and the Leper Colony.  If you never met Anna, you have met JESUS and I know your heart has been touched to see CHILDREN reached with the compassion and love of JESUS! Because of your love for the Master! I will try and send a link so you can peek at some of the pictures we took today at the school! GOD BLESS YOU EVERYONE! HELPING PEOPLE IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH FUN!!

                                                               ONE LIFE TO LIVE

                                                            WILL SOON BE PASSED

                                        ONLY WHAT IS DONE FOR CHRIST WILL LAST.

Yours and HIS "Hands and Feet" in Africa,
