My First Kenya Support!

I had dinner last night with the Edwards and the Maguires...my favorites!

I walked in to the house and was talking to Katie when Abby (her 8-year-old daughter) comes in and hands me this:



She has three jars: SAVE IT, SPEND IT, and GIVE IT BACK TO GOD.

Once the third jar was full, Katie and Ron sat with Abby to discuss the options of giving it back to God: tithing at church, giving it to an organization, supporting a missionary...

Abby decided to support a missionary: me!

So, now I am $19.71 closer to my Kenya trip!
Thanks for supporting me, Abbs! I love your guts!

Here's me, Katie and Abby in Kenya (2005)

Katie had that bag of cash with her, and knowing Katie I giggled and asked what it was for. When she told me I cried. Cute Abby!
