Good morning #OALfamily! We’re excited to give you a fresh update on what’s going on at Orphan Aid, Liberia.
VERSE OF THE WEEK ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’-Matthew 25:40
LOVE. Shirt Report
Wow, is about the only word that can describe what kind of LOVE. SHIRT month we had in August. It was a beautiful record breaking month. Here is a recap to show you guys just how epic the LOVE was in August.
Cartersville Women’s Club at Church of the Ascension – 576 Meals
CrossFit Warrior Pride– 4,716 Meals
Cartersville High Cheer, Cartersville Middle School, Cartersville Elementary, Central Office, & Cartersville Band Parents– 3,708 Meals
Our children in Liberia are excited and ready to go back to school. This school year we will be assisting over 1,000 children by providing school supplies and school fees. We’re also excited to announce we will have 11 children attending university, one attending trade school, and another in nursing school this year.
If you’re interested in partnering with us, and filling the education needs of a child, please visit our Scholarship Page.
That’s right people, we are officially chicken farmers in Liberia. Two of the orphanages we support (Lighthouse Orphanage & Williams and Garblah) now are farming chickens.
The chickens should lay enough eggs for each child to have one egg per day plus have enough to sale at market.
Learning to farm chickens can help the children develop a sense of responsibility as well as new skills that may sustain them in the future.
