Look what God has done! | 3 years

This past week we celebrated my little brother's 6th birthday! Who is that little brother? Elijah, as in handiworkforElijah.

Which means Handiwork for Orphans has been open for 3 years! THREE YEARS!

And during that three years God has blessed this ministry more than I can believe, and we're not done growing! 

Let's recap:
  • 3 years
  • Founded in Sept 2010 to help bring my little brother home from Ukraine
  • Added Rachel as the missing half of HFO in June 2011
  • Hundreds of hats made and sold
  • Hundreds of dishcloths and other items made and sold
  • 25+ craft sales
  • Several people inspired to start their own shops selling items to help orphans
  • Hundreds of people made aware of our cause and the plight of the orphan
  • Over $7000 raised (estimated)
  • 16+ orphans helped to find their families and come home
  • 6 of those have families working to get them!
  • and 8 are HOME with their forever families!

God is SO good! And we are so grateful to Him, and to everyone who made this possible.

Here's to another 3 years, to more money raised, to more children helped, to more families completed, to more love made.
Dude wasn't cooperating for pictures....
Thank you Elijah! For getting this party started!


Our current child we are raising money for is Maria.
