Day 163 - June Birthdays & Friends of Fanose...

This morning at church we celebrated all of the June birthdays. I am so thankful that we have Miss Julianne home for her birthday this year!!! Last year we really hoped to meet Julianne in time for her first birthday, but we missed it by six days. We have been making plans for her birthday and she gets so excited when we talk about her party :o) So sweet!! She enjoyed every minute of the singing, cake and lemonade this morning :o) A good practice run...haha!

Sweet Little Jonah is growing up! He started sitting up pretty well last week and we recently discovered that he LOVES playing in the walker. It is soooooo sweet to watch him learn how to use his hands to play with the toys. He is also eating his baby food very well!! I think the baby food is helping pack on the ounces :o) His sweet little legs definitely look a little fuller :o) We have decided that we aren't giving him back :o) We sure love this little guy!!!

Last week was pretty slow for Friends of Fanose, but we had a BIG donation today that got us right back on track!!! We are so excited. Thanks Betty & Ron (aka Ganny & Papa Texarkana!)!! Our new Friends of Fanose total....

$715....whoo hoo!!! Because of you, THIRTY FIVE people will have acess to CLEAN drinking water!! That is a BIG deal!!!

$5000 seems like a HUGE goal, but with your help it is can be done!! We need an average of $54 per day for the next 79 days. If 200 people gave $20 we would meet our goal! Or 400 people gave $10 or 800 people gave $5...it is that easy. That is why it is soooooo important to spread the word through email, facebook and word of mouth. With your help, we can build a well for an ENTIRE village of people!

Why build a well? One in eight people in the world do not have access to clean water. ONE in EIGHT. Think about seven of your friends...can you imagine if one of you had to drink dirty water? Honestly, I cannot imagine that. Now imagine an ENTIRE village of people in Africa has to drink dirty water everyday, but YOU have the power to change that!!

I don't know about you, but I am really excited about making a difference :o)
