Kids in America making a difference in Africa!!

Not long ago my husband made a promise during our church's VBS.

Nathan promised the kiddos that if they could raise $1,000.00 to go to Uganda that he would allow them to shave his head!!

With a promise like that would could resist...they absolutely raised the $1,000.00 and last week all of the kiddos gathered in the children's building to take part in the shaving of my hubby's head!

Let the shaving begin!!

 Kaden insisted on making the first cut!

No turning back now!!

 Almost done!!

 The finished product!!  I still think he is as handsome as ever and I am so proud of his willingness to think out side of the box to make a difference!

Our kiddos didn't stop there...later that evening they gathered together to stuff over 60 bags that we will be delivering to the caregivers in Uganda!  It is our heartfelt prayer that these bags will somehow refresh the hearts of the caregivers and remind them how much God loves them. 

The kids filled each bag with a handmade card and lots of goodies that we hope will bless these precious people!

Even little Brooklyn got in on the service project!!
As I watched them work I couldn't help but to think of 1 Timothy 4:12...Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
Even when given the opportunity to go play on the playground most of them stayed and worked on filling more bags.  What an example of love!

Just a portion of the finished bags! we come!!!
