Raising money to bring two brothers from Latvia for a four week stay at our home through Project 143.
Gary and I have always had an acute awareness of the plight of children living in orphanages. After discussing for years what we could do to make a difference, even a small one, we feel an opportunity has presented itself through Project One Forty Three. Two delightful boys will be coming to our home for four weeks of lots of love, laughter and fun starting in December! Gary and I hope to provide unique experiences that they have never had and quite possibly may never have the opportunity again!
Oleg is almost age 6 says that if he would love to buy a hat if he was able to earn some money. He attended Bible School last summer and learned "about Jesus and also some English." He also loves sports, particularly playing ball. Oleg is a beautiful little boy with the brightest smile!
His bigger brother, Iija is 13 years old. He also went to Bible School this past summer and decided to become baptized while he was there. He says that all he wants is a mother and father who will love him. He is a handsome young man whose eyes project the wariness of a boy who has been rejected by his family.
