60 feet

We met with some sweet friends last night to pray for the adventure that Dan & Michael are about to embark on beginning tomorrow. (Sarah was there!!!! An amazing answer to prayer) Many of you placed orders & you helped to give money to help the children that they will hopefully be face to face with in Uganda in just a few days. Sixty feet is something that speaks so much about God's heartbeat for caring for His children. These children, in particular & like so many others, need rescuing. Thank you for helping this ministry move forward - you can see your orders in action by following the sixty feet blog.
Check out the events page - a home show is happening in Atlanta. A percentage will continue to help TAWV & a percentage will also help to bring an orphan from Uganda to his/her forever family right here in our community.

And a big thank you to all of you who placed orders to help 60feet & as always, Takes A Whole Village (Heath & Neema will be here next week & you can come say hey here) - we will see Dan & Michael tonight as they prepare for heading to Uganda in just TWO DAYS!

Some orders I just finished.



I'm am always amazed to see God's people in action. Mukisa is a place in Uganda that needs our help. Word got out about this place. The conditions. The children. It hit deep into the hearts of some people & 2 of those people are heading over there. They are not just talking about it. They are moving. And they are not going unorganized, but rather planning, researching, praying & learning the best way to help not only these children - but the community. As always, this shop is purposed to use the gifts God has given us for a bigger purpose - artists are partnering with this mission. And as always, 15% of the profits will go to help Takes A Whole Village & through Aprtil 22nd (Dan & Michael leave ont he 24th) we will gather another 15% for them to take to hopefull build a well for these people in Uganda. Will you help? Not out of guilt, but out of gratitude - each time you try to meet that 8 cups of water a day goal, remember that it is water that won't make you sick, each time you grab a snack, remember that others just don't have that luxury. For me, it is each time I say good night to my kids, I remember that there are many who do not have a mom or a dad to do that for them. Check out the site & check out the store and spread the word.


Jennie from the Blocks

Way back in 2001, I met Lee (husband) while checking out a Young Life club for the 1st time. Jennie (Connor) Council was on that team. She's a great girl with a great heart who is also super creative. She has added her blocks to the shopping list - also with a percentage of profits going to help TAWV & the other ministries that vary from month to month when ordered through the Neema Shop. Check out the shopping page for more info on how to order these or any of the other gifts available.
