UPCOMING EVENT: THIS WEEKEND OCTOBER 1 & 2...Art Along the Rogue....All weekend downtown Grants Pass. The event will be held on H Street. You can find ME on the corner of 5th and H.

We have a HUGE goal to meet by the end of the year. I am confident that it can be done. I look forward to seeing all of you there.
First Goal: 2,000 to provide new mattresses for the orphans.
Second Goal: Start raising funds for LONG term mission trip.


When I first started on this journey with the candy, I had two goals for 2011. 1. To raise the funds for a short term mission trip. 2. To sponsor three adoptions. The good news is that we reached our first goal. As most of you know from reading my blog it was and incredable time. However, when I was over there, there was a need at the Open Door Orphanage that I can not ignore. So I am refocusing my fund raising efforts for the remainder of the year. The children here are in need of new mattresses. I would like to replace what they have with
vinyl covered sturdy foam. This would allow for the beds to be cleaned and not damaged. This would also allow for fitted sheets to be made that could be removed and cleaned weekly. There are 33 children and the cost of replacing all there mattresses will be about 2,000. I would have them made in the Phiilippines and I have friends that are willing to deliver them for me. Please pray for this as I continue my fund raising efforts. If you are able to contribute to this cause, and do not wish to buy sweets, you can send a tax deductable donation. All checks should be made out to Home for Good Foundation and sent to:

Thank you so much for your support!. I am excited for the season ahead and look forward to fellowship with all of you.

Thanks to your AMAZING support, I was able to complete a mission trip to the Philippines a couple of weeks ago. This experience was such a blessing. I want to let you know that all of your support went so far....I was able to do so many things for the children when I was there. I visited two different orphanags while I was there and saw the Lord working. I must admit that the trip was far more emotional than I thought it would be. The message I tried to send to the children was a message of HOPE! At one point one of the 16 year old girls said to me "I am JUST an orphan". This ripped my heart out. You see, in Gods eyes we are equal but that messsage was never told to this beautiful, talented, young women. She has completed the entrance exam for the University of the Philippines and we are praying that she gets in. Please join me in praying for her. She will find out in January if she gets accepted.
The Lord showed me many things during my visit. I have been praying for direction and he is being faithful in answering that prayer. The culture is amazing. So eye opening for me. I can not wait to see what the future holds and continue on this journey of sponsoring the adoptions of these children. Hope you enjoy the slide show below.
I am still her on my missions trip. I have been to two orphanages and have gain so much knowledge and insight to the issue here. I look forward to writing up my strory and posting  upon my return to the United States. Please continue to pray for me. Mu
