Just look at these children!

200 Faces of HOPE puzzle coming to PC for Christmas!  Shhh! Don't tell the children!

How can it be August 1st already?  Some days I feel stuck on March 25th when Eswatini went in to lockdown and the borders closed.  And then some days I feel like I have at least made it to June, but August?  No way! 

 

Today’s blog will be a photo blog, with pictures of our children in their homes.  We have a lot of children!  A few weeks ago I asked Bryan to help me set up photos with the children in each house.  As always, our children and staff are quick to do what they are asked to do, and they love having their photos taken, so the exercise was painless and quick. The reason for the photos was so that I could have Lisa, in the US office, order Shutterfly puzzles of these photos!  Each puzzle is age appropriate with the number of pieces, and they are ready to be shipped in the container. I can’t wait to see the children work on putting puzzles together with their very own faces!



Needless to say, the toddlers and babies won’t be doing puzzles (or be given the opportunity to eat puzzle pieces), so I didn’t take a photo of them together.

 

I hope you are blessed by these photos today!

 

By the way, our Diaper Drive is finished and YOU BOUGHT EVERYTHING on our wish (and dream) lists! We have enough diapers and wipes to last the next year, and in addition we have bicycles, helmets, games, books, educational toys and so many more things that will help us raise our future leaders to be the best that they can be. I cannot thank you enough for your generosity and love.

 

Live from Eswatini … we are blessed.
