West Coast Story

Hi everyone,                 
For those of you who saw our previous blog, you would have read about the wonderful young adults of the Tri-Cities Rotaract Club providing Christmas for our "Home of Angels" and as if that wasn't enough, purchasing new backpacks with gifts inside for each of our "Angels" for school next year.  

The Tsawwassen Rotary had recently offered to share a medical container going to Uganda and I have been working hard to organize the many boxes in my home.  As I am also leaving for Uganda very soon, the Rotary has been very supportive, offering to store our items until the loading date PLUS pay all costs for transport.  Once again these young adults of the Tri-Cities Rotaract Club have volunteered to help me unload these boxes from my home and help offload them into the Rotary World Helps Warehouse.

.......and that's not all

We were presented with a HUGE surprise.

The Tri-Cities Rotaract Club chose our "Home of Angels" to have a benefit concert for.
They named it " The West Coast Story" and as you can see below, it will be held in Port Moody on March 3rd at the Hudson Station.   Everyone is welcome.

The young adults of the Tri-Cities Rotaract Club solidly stand behind their mission statement..... and we are indebted. 

                            “Three Cities. One Mission. Creating Change. Taking Action.”

I will be sending an updated blog regarding our home and the children soon after I arrive.  I will try and give you all the updated information regarding the kids and home.  Edwin is so busy trying to take care of the children and both compounds, I cannot expect him to continually take pictures too.  I don't know many people that can do what he does and so efficiently.

Blessings to all of you
