I would like to start by apologizing for missing my first monthly blog in 10 years. There has been good and bad happening on both sides of the world and because of the sickness and deaths in Uganda, our blogs have had to be put on hold until I get there next week to help Edwin.
In the meantime, I wanted you to see what my dear friend Stephanie Reddicopp is doing again this year to promote the name of our Jaaja Barb's Home of Angels. Last year she baked banana bread for 30 days and raised $12,000.
This year she's up to an even a bigger challenge that doesn't necessarily mean money but loving on people and giving them blessings at Christmas time. I'll be leaving for Uganda soon and won't get a chance to experience her 30 Hours of Banana Bread but I'd like to share it with all of you before I go so you can follow her on Facebook or maybe even help her.
30 Hours of Banana Bread
An act of kindness movement inspired by Banana Bread Barb!
Be BOLD & BAKE and BLESS others!!!!! I think Barb’s story is inspiring and worth sharing. I also think Banana Bread is worth sharing! I want the banana bread to be shared all over the world as an act of kindness and for Barb’s story to be told!
Last year I endeavored 30 Days of Banana Bread… it was AMAZING!!! I baked every day and was able to raise over $12,000 for Jaaja Barb’s Home of Angels. This year will be a bit different.
30 Hours of Banana Bread is going to be an incredible world-wide movement that involves you!
• How to participate: BE BOLD & BAKE banana bread & BLESS others by giving it away! I want to encourage people all over the world to join me to bake banana bread during those 30 Hours. The goal is to bake banana bread and give it away to someone who you think should be blessed by it. As you give it away, you tell Barb’s story of building the Home of Angels. I will have a little story people can print off at home and attach it to their loaves when they give it away that tells Barb’s Home of Angels story.
• When: Starting at 6am December 14th - Finishing at 12pm December 15th (during those 30 Hours)
You can bake with your kids or with some friends or by yourself, and then give it away! My house will be open for anyone who wants to join me during those 30 Hours. Come for coffee, mash some bananas … let’s bake some banana bread! Most of the banana baked at my house will be donated to the Cyrus Centre https://www.cyruscentre.com a shelter for at-risk and homeless youth in Abbotsford and Chilliwack, BC.
And, of course, some banana bread will be available for you to take home with you (by donation).

Edwin and I are just humbled by an event like this and we both want to thank everyone for helping us make a difference in these children's lives. Thank you, Stephanie, for all you've done for others now and in the past. This is a huge undertaking but you know that God is with you and you will never fail with Him walking beside you.
