Nobody's Kids

When I told my Dad that we are giving away Aaron's art he looked at me like I was crazy.  When I showed him the FINAL picture Aaron drew for this giveaway he seriously could not believe I would give it away.
 
Sigh!
 
But I promised so I must deliver....
 
 
TODAY'S WINNER OF AARON'S ART ....the precious happy picture of his house  ....
 
Is......
 
 
MEG (teamstout)
 
Please e-mail me covenant@yahoo.com with your address so I can send you Aaron's Masterpiece!!
 
 
TODAY'S ART PIECE THAT IS BEING GIVEN AWAY IS CALLED MAMA'S VAN
 
Though this is a simple drawing - it is one of my favorites.  The squiggly lines are the roads.  The straight lines at the bottom represent grass.  Riding in the van is one of Aaron's greatest pleasures. 
 

MAMA'S VAN

 
Donate today and you will be put in the drawing for "Mama's Van". 
 
 
Three more days. 


Three more days and our 11 Mulligan Stew babes will no longer show up in your feeds on a daily basis. 

Three more days.

If not for the reality that our voices for those babes will dim, I would be rejoicing that this Mulligan Stew Giveaway will soon be over.

But they are Nobody's Kids.

The least of the least.


I know that seeing the gallery of faces on my blog day after day can be rather tiresome...

But those faces are on there for a purpose.

Our Mulligan Stew babes need families.

Some of them are in decent places right now.  Some of them are in desperate situations.  Some have the privilege of ministry teams working with them.  Some lay in their waste day after dreary day. 

All of them - because they carry the special needs label - all of them will spend the rest of their lives locked away unless they are adopted. 

Right now in that country there isn't another alternative. 

Jason.  Casey.  Simon. Barton.  Hanson.  Porter.  Aubree.  Iris.  Frank.  Bobby.  Darren.

They will live their days alone. 

 
Nobody's Kids.
 
The time-consuming job of keeping a stew pot cooking for three more days is worth the effort if we can be a voice for our 11 babes.
 
Raising their ransom so that a family will find them is so worth it.
 
We have three days to get our final six babes over the $1,000.00 wall.
 
Three more days to shout their need to the world!!
 
OUR NOBODY'S KIDS NEED FAMILIES!!
 
Jason - who has lagged in the back the entire time - has been offered a special grant. 
 

 
 
 
If we can get his grant to 1,700.00 - he will be given another $800.00 so that he will have a total of $2,500.00 in his grant account. That will mean that he makes it on the Moving Mountains page on Reece's Rainbow.  The children on those pages get more exposure!! 
 
 
 Just $581.00 and Jason moves a mountain!!
 
 
So far Angela and Jon have matched $254.00.  They need a little over $1,000 to get their full $1,300 grant!
 
THE OTHER MATCHING GRANTS HAVE ALL BEEN MET!! PRAISE GOD PRAISE GOD!! 
 
We are so close... so close indeed....
 
 
P.S. - Just as a reminder... please leave your first AND last name when you comment... Also - some of you are having trouble leaving comments... send me an e-mail if you can't leave a comment or try using a different server (google chrome works for me)
