A different kind of home party!

I have a cool opportunity for those of you that may be interested learning more about orphan care in Uganda and ways you can get involved by staying in your home or getting out and about!

Brandi is coming to Fargo the weekend of December 3, 4, 5 and 6 and is eager to share with you what Christ is doing in her heart and how God gave her this beautiful group of kids who need help!

The village in Uganda is called "Bukedea". There are 250 identified kids there that are literally starving. There are about 1000 orphans living in this District, just 2 hours from where our family may be living in Kenya. In this post, Brandi writes about the day they met these kids and fed them and 700 more kids came to them hungry and they had to turn them away and because they had no more food.

And they went away hungry.

I want to raise money for these voiceless kids who desperately need their tummies full. I would love your help!

What I am looking for are for people willing to host a home party (similar to what you may do with Mary Kay, Tastefully Simple, etc) in their home and invite 10 women or more and have them bring a friend. If the home parties get too big to host at your home, we may move to some other location. Brandi will be bringing THE CUTEST aprons you have ever seen and paperbead necklaces to sell as well as speak about what God is doing in Uganda. You will also have a chance to sponsor a child if you so desire.

Are any of you willing? Think Christmas gifts for your family! What a precious gift to give other women in your family as well as a cool story to share about where it came from. Or, what a precious reminder for you to pray for these kids each time you wear them. All (100%) of the proceeds from the aprons and beads go TO THE KIDDOS as part of an annual fundraiser I will head up to raise money to build bigger bridges for these kids to have access to things such as clean water, medical care and school.

If you would like to be a part of this weekend and join with me to help fundraise for these precious kids, email me or leave a comment. The more brain power, the more creativity! The sky is the limit. If you have an idea, let me know!

If you are interested in hosting a paper bead necklace/apron party that weekend, please email me at or leave a comment at the end of this post and I will get you the details.
