Some wonderful happenings for Forget-Me-Not...
Our trip to Liberia is coming up quick! I cannot wait to love on all our beautiful FMN children and build upon the relationships of our foster families! This is my favorite part of being involved in this wonderful program for 'special needs.' I am blessed to work alongside such a compassionate team of people. I have a wonderful Co-Director, Josephus, whose the hands and feet of FMN in Liberia. He's got an amazing heart for these kids and FMN. I work very closely with Donna, director and founder of Global Orphan Outreach. And now our newest member of the FMN team, Leslie. Leslie truly has a wonderful caring and compassionate heart and is a perfect fit for the FMN Sponsorship Coordinator. She will be going to Liberia for the very first time this trip! I'm so excited for her!
As always, everyday is PACKED full of things we will be doing. Therapy and Hygiene training for our caregivers is a very important aspect of FMN, so that is always on the agenda! We will also have a lot of fun handing out supplies and gifts. Through some generous donors, we have over 50 Cabbage Patch dolls, 100 dresses from 'Little African Dresses', and over 300 little cars to give to the community kids! Plus, with our group of 7, we all will be involved in doing a medical outreach for Pastor Peter's village, and giving medical attention to those we encounter along the way during the week. Our last trip, everyday we encountered children, from several surrounding communities, that needed some sort of care. This trip, two of the gals coming, have been filling their suitcases with medical supplies that will be utilized the whole week! We will be well prepared wherever we go!
That is just a sampling of our week! Keep checking the blog for updates while we are on our trip!
SEE YOU IN LIBERIA!!!!
