50 Books for Croix des Bouquets- Our goal reached!

 Hi blogging friends, 

I just wanted to let everyone know that earlier this week I sent off 50 handmade books to Abundant Ground for the Croix des Bouquets orphanage! 

A big thank you to everyone who participated in the project!-
Including a local girl's camp that finished it all off!

The week before the girl's camp, a different service project fell through for them.  The camp leaders contacted me and asked me if the Haiti project might work well as a last minute substitute. 
(Tatiana, the girl's camp leader)

We scrambled about to get printing prices at local stores and we rounded up scissors and sewing machines for groups of 30+ girls.  We got the service underway and I am so excited about the results.

The girls did great cutting, gluing and sewing.

For many of the girls, it was their first time learning how to use a sewing machine.  But we had a couple of expert seamstress help out and everything turned out great.

I was so grateful to see the girls put in so much effort!

And I am so grateful for the outcome! 

The girl's were so willing and they were all so fun to be with. 
Such a beautiful spirit was there.
Again, I feel like the Lord had a hand in this project, making everything work out.

I will share any follow-up report I get from Stephanie Victor.
Again, thank you to everyone who contributed to the service project!  
I had so much fun doing the drive, I'd totally do it again!

I hope, CK, you are doing well and hanging in there with respect to deployment. One day at a time, and one day closer to the end. :)

I'd love to see pictures at the Haiti end in the future. What a lot of effort and people pulling on the oars together!

You're amazing, CK!
