Hello from Amy’s Assorted Adventures. I’m grateful to Mimi for offering me this opportunity.
Five years ago we started out on our greatest adventure to date when we decided that we needed to start an orphanage in rural Zambia. We had been living in Zambia for nearly four years at this time and had seen how desperate the situation for orphans was. Starting our own orphanage was a big step because we were just a simple missionary couple with six kids and no organization backing us. We only had a dream and (of course) God’s backing.
It hasn’t been an easy ride, building and renovating, training staff, taking in very sick and needy babies—losing some of the sickest ones, but it has been so very worth it. When I look around our home and see the babies that have grown up to be preschoolers and now kindergarteners, I know it is so worth it and I feel humbled and blessed that God has put us in this place at this time.
To help them feel that way, we want to present each of our kids ages 3 and above with their own little toy box this Christmas. We are inviting people to send small toys that we can fill them with. If this is something you would be interested in, you can find more details here, Christmas Comes But Once A Year, and here, Missionary Monday.
If you’d like to learn more about all my adventures in Africa please stop by and pay me a visit at Amy's Assorted Adventures. I love having visitors!
Please hop on over to Amy's blog and help with their Christmas project or donate directly to the orphanage.
