Walnut wood has a beautiful dark grain that naturally gets darker and more shiny from the natural oils in your skin.

$50 Amazon Gift Card and 4 Books Giveaway! #4books

Happy New Year!

First I want to mention that we DID (just barely) reach the goal of $400 for Operation Christmas Love!  Everything was turned in just before Christmas.  Thanks for your help!

Secondly, I am leaving for a 9 day trip to Albania on Monday!  I will be spending a day with K (World Vision sponsored) and his family on Wednesday THEN spending two full days visiting Mission Without Borders in Durres.  It looks like I'm meeting with families who are in and have graduated the family sponsorship program and visiting a Mission Without Borders soup kitchen as well.  I am so excited/nervous!  Nervous because I HATE flying.  It's just the worst- especially for 9+ hours.  AND Albania is completely new to me.  I've learned a few words- have a phrase book on my Kindle- but I have never been there before. 

I will try to update daily via Facebook and this blog.  Probably won't be on twitter much.  I hope to come back with lots of great pictures and stories.

Meanwhile, here's a giveaway to keep you occupied until I get back!  This will start on 

Enter for a chance to win the $50 Amazon Gift Card and 4 Books Giveaway!

All 3 winners will receive the e-book The Lives We Lead. They will also receive their choice of e-book or paperback of the following titles: Your Computer is the Key to Your Financial Freedom, Control Your Clutter, & How to Grow Herbs and Microgreens for Health or Profit.

About the prizes

The Lives We Lead e-book

King’s Stand is an exclusive private school tucked away in the forest and accessible only by a hidden road. The students all experience some sort of problem ranging from simply being afraid of the changes the future is bringing to family problems that are tearing them apart.

The author, Alexandra Egi, was a 17-year-old high school senior when she wrote this who aspired to make a difference in the world through her writing. This was her first novel but you would never guess by reading the book. She does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life and pulling you in so that you have to see how the girls resolve their many problems.

Good And Bad News From Ukraine.

On December 20- just 5 days away from Christmas- 2900 explosions occurred in Ukraine as the war continues with heavy artillery and gunfire on the front lines.
"A spokesman for the Ukrainian military, Col. Andriy Lysenko, said that five soldiers were killed and 16 wounded during the day-long battle and that Russian-backed separatist forces had attempted to break through government lines. It was the largest single loss of life for Ukrainian troops in five months."

Once a food surplus nation, now more than a million people need some form of food assistance due to the economic and political fallout from Russian aggression.  More than 1.6 million Ukrainians have been internally displaced due to the conflict.  According to the World Food Program, the price of a basic food box has increased 42% in one year.  Economic fallout and inflation affect all Ukrainians- even those far from the front lines.

Now for some good news! 

In 2015, Mission Without Borders supported 500 needy families in Ukraine through the Family to Family sponsorship program.  This is in addition to the 8000+ children sponsored in 52 state-run homes. 1350 Ukrainian children were able to attend summer camps and 130 young people obtained vocational training in the missions training center in Sarny.  These training courses lead to government approved certification and jobs!

There is so much bad news all over..every morning on the news there's another murder (and another murderer coddled with 3 hots and cot)  I like what Mr. Rogers said in a column:

"Always look for the helpers," she'd tell me. "There's always someone who is trying to help." I did, and I came to see that the world is full of doctors and nurses, police and firemen, volunteers, neighbors and friends who are ready to jump in to help when things go wrong.

So that's my goal and challenge for the new year.  But I want to take that one step further.  This year be a "helper".  I may not be able to solve all the economic problems in Albania but I can make sure K and his family have a good Christmas dinner.  If you're already helping (and everyone is to one extent or another), maybe stretch yourself just a bit and try to help a little bit more this year- even this Christmas.  Pray about it.  I know Mission Without Borders can always use your support- be it a monthly commitment or one time gift.  I probably won't write anything until next week so

Merry Christmas!

1.5 million #Ukrainians are #food insecure, meaning they are at increased risk of #hunger and suffering. 300,000 of these people are severely food insecure and require immediate assistance. During #winter the situation for vulnerable Ukrainians is critical as many can't access the basic essentials they need to survive. Internally displaced #refugees and Ukrainians living in parts of the country affected by the ongoing #conflict with #Russia are particularly vulnerable during the cold season. What's more, those living in #rural areas are almost twice as likely to live in poverty as those in #urban locations, and are most at risk of being cut off from sources of food, #fuel and #energy. We help fill the gap in vulnerable people's care by providing vital material assistance to people and families living in poverty. #charity #nonprofit #foodsecurity #urgentresponse #urgentneeds #crisis #easterneurope #snow #cold #family #childpoverty #children #homeless #instadaily #instagood #igdaily #picoftheday

One week until Christmas! Operation Christmas Love Update #OCL2016

Christmas is in 7 days! Operation Christmas Love parcels have been packed and are being distributed in Eastern Europe as you read this. I want to do my part to make sure this project is fully funded and have set the modest fundraising goal of $400. That's enough to fund 10 OCL parcels for the neediest in Eastern Europe.

 I just added up my Amazon.com and Booking.com commissions and we are now at $358! I have updated the thermometer accordingly. If you are doing any last minute shopping or traveling, won't you consider using these links? It costs you nothing but the commission is helping to make sure needy families and children have the food they need and bring some Christmas joy to an otherwise bleak life.

I know reaching the goal is a long shot but it really isn't impossible! I have seen $20-$30 commission days before (I check nearly every day) I want to thank those who have shopped on Amazon and other sponsors. You made this possible!  I have no way of knowing who you are but I really, really appreciate it!

Christmas Drama (relax it's the good kind!)

When I visited Moldova in 2010, I was able to watch a couple of the gospel dramas that Mission Without Borders performs in schools and community centers.  Teaching biblical values (kindness, forgiveness, love) in a fun, entertaining drama combines a fun afternoon for the kids, an opportunity to bond with the community, and share the gospel!  There are many dedicated volunteers and staff who share these dramas with disadvantaged children several times a year.

I am determined to do a better job documenting this trip and have a digital video camera and tripod coming from Amazon for that very purpose.  Hopefully I can test run it over Christmas and be up to speed by January 9th.

Speaking of January 9th, it's only 22 days away!  I feel like a kid counting down the days until Christmas!  I did receive word from Mission Without Borders in Albania that they will be happy to host my visit.  They are preparing an itinerary so I expect to have plenty to film and share when I get back.  I hope I can film one of these dramas and so much more.  I don't expect to be able to return to Albania anytime soon.  In 2018, I'd love to return to Moldova, then on to Ukraine for a week.
