Here We Come with Smiles and Shopping Magic...

You won’t believe it…we are leaving to Ghana in 10 days (from today).  I can’t believe it!  We leave August 27th and will return in the states September 9th.  Please pray for our travel, the time we are there and the work the Lord has for us to do, while we are in Ghana.  It is our desire to begin the necessary in establishing our NGO (basically nonprofit status) in Ghana.  It is a huge step in our journey to work with the children and families in Ghana.  We do believe it is only a step in the process, there will be so much more, but we need this to move onto the next level.  Last year we left to Ghana for the first time as One Step In Faith, and returned with our first supported child.  Today we have 6 One Step In Faith children, of all different phases of support and help.  We have been praying - we are ready to continue to push forward -  into the next season God has for us in Ghana.  Please join us in these prayers.  Please cover us as we push forward.  Thank you…

A few more updates...
As you are aware, we are fundraising still to support Eddie our new Executive Director.  We have not received any support funds towards 2015.  If the Lord is calling you to support Eddie and his family, please click one of the below links (One Time or Monthly).  We know and trust God has called us to bring Eddie onto the team as a full-time employee and therefore He will provide.
