The Trouble Makers

"Every time I pass by soldiers I think, "here come the big troublemakers". Nine-year-old Belice was raped by the Congolese government soldiers. The soldiers stole the goats from her family. The soldiers dismantled their house and took all the wood and possessions they had saved for over the years.

If you would like to donate to Belice's family to help them start over please email me.estination wedding photographer lovesimplyhappens, Destination wedding photographer lovesimplyhappens, Destination wedding photographer lovesimplyhappens,Goma Congo Refugees Congo Sherrlyn Borkgren ShootQ, Nkunda rebels Kivu

Hi. I just took a few minutes to catch up on the entries on you blog site and realize that I guess I have been missing quite a few of these over the past week. I have presumed that when I read down to something I read earlier that I was at the end of your latest entry. Today I discovered much more. Thanks for all the news and for being a comfort to Belize and her familly.

We do not normally commit our selves to gifts until the 25th of the month but I feel it is safe to say that we would like to give $50 to Belize and her family. I saw some ssymbols for visa at the end of the blog. Is that the way we should convey the $$? Is there a better way where we might get a receipt?

I thought you intended to return by now and I have been expecting to hear from you about meeting you. I hope all is well.
We are doing good and church is going on good. There are still new people every week. I hope we are doing a good job of connecting with them.

I love you much and really appreciate what you are doing.

I posted info and a link to your blog back to 2 other sites that I run for our women's outreach groups. Hopefully you'll get some donations coming in from it. I gave them the link to your paypal as well.
