A Picture Says...

Julie writes:

Ten more Malawi, Africa facts with pictures follow….  The pictures are from my 2008 mission trip.

A soup company once bragged that “Simple pleasures are the best!” The struggling people in Malawi live that cliché. They are true champions of living life to the fullest.

This photo shows they are,
‘happy happy happy!”

Even though they live in quite ‘humble homes in comparison to most of us in the USA, they survive.

In their opinion, with all their AIDS deaths
and malnutrition or disease mortalities,
sometimes, all there is left to do is dance!

Better yet, sing while dancing.

They are cooking including in their version of kitchens!

They have little food
so what they have is not only finger licking good
but bowl licking too!
 It’s their version of bowling.

Somehow, they work it out; we did some chores with them.

The kids made anything they could their toys; their imagination was their only limitation.

They loved to play with our sunglasses including mine.

If you can help me on my second mission trip, please, go to COTN and donate in my name. I will bring you back some more photos to reciprocate. In other words, I would like to invite you to be a part of my support team through prayerfully and financially supporting this effort. I need to raise $3,000 to cover my trip expenses. There are two ways you can help me reach this financial goal. The first is by donating either online at: Julie's FUNds or by check made payable to Children of the Nations, with my personal fundraising code on the check memo line (234471). Checks should be sent to: COTN-Venture Program, PO Box 3970, Silverdale, WA 98383. All investments in this ministry are tax-deductible.

By the way, someone will win a T-Shirt that has a picture of the continent on it as well as the following text.

“The Warm Heart of Africa”

To qualify to win send a donation today and comment on this blog.

You can qualify to win other ways, too. If you guest host my African trip or your review a book inspired by my first trip entitled The Choice, you can qualify. Those details are @ Contest 1

Thanks for partnering with me on my return to Malawi!

James 1:27

New International Version (NIV)

27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

By the way, I am a college graduate and an environmental scientist. I currently work for a land trust that buys back and redevelops ruined natural lands in the USA. A life dream is to help with even more environmental issues including water plagues in Africa. Let see how this second mission goes before I grow into that next goal.

Do you think my story ends here?

Find out more about books I am a part of including - but not limited to- The Evans Terrace Girls and the S.H.E. Anthology. From that anthology, most of the proceeds help children from the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre through mental health agencies (New Hope for Kids) that deal with PTSD.
