Preparations for upcoming mission

It is organized chaos around me here as we prepare for the upcoming Mission Work in Sierra Leone. Medical supplies, documents for registering the school children, etc. etc. I understand from James, that it is the same atmosphere in Sierra Leone as the school is preparing for Opening Day.

We are very close to reaching the goal we set for Humanitarian Needs; today we lack $1025. This is a must. It would be shameful to travel that far and not be able to give special assistance tailored to the needs of the individuals we find as we travel through the country. Many are the very ones pictured above, like little Adama who has had to step in and take her mother's place in the household since her mother, Gladys, passed on several months ago...and there are hundreds more in the same situations.

Thank you for what has already been accomplished. The Nazareth House Family is truly awesome.

Please be a part of helping these beautiful people. Give Today.
