We still enjoy the many packages we receive in the mail.
Most of them are from family (thanks to both moms) and friends (Anna Goodworth again!).
We were surprised this last week however with a package from Jannie Bahrs a woman I have never met, or spoken to! She happens to be a sponsor of Megan Steele (our volunteer coordinator, also from Portland) and she was kind enough to send us some more kiddie band aids and gum.
Sadly for Megan, the package to us from HER sponsor arrived before her own package. But now too she has received her first package and is very happy.
Anyhow, thank you to those of you who are contributing to our work here, even if we don’t know you or haven’t met you in person. Each and every thought, prayer, contribution is appreciated!
Other ways that you can contribute to our work here at Karibu Centre include:
–Volunteering time to Orphans Overseas in Portland, Oregon as they prepare for the annual fund raising auction. Orphans Overseas accomplishes SO much with just a couple of employees, so manpower is always appreciated!
–Giving a donation of some sort (services, silent auction items, live auction items) for the fundraising auction.
–Attending or hosting a table at the annual fundraising auction (generally held around February each year).
–Coming to Africa to volunteer your time or services for Karibu Centre (and then you are welcome to go off on your own for sightseeing etc! Really a great opportunity to combine service/pleasure in one trip).
–Donate & ship supplies for use at Karibu Centre.
–Keeping our families health and safety in your daily prayers and thoughts.
–Spreading the word about our work here at Karibu Centre among interested friends and family.
If you are interested in any of the above, feel free to let us know here on the blog, or you can go to the Orphans Overseas link (I think it is labeled as our African hookup) and find listed ways to contact Orphans Overseas staff.
