Another child enters the Ethiopian housing market!

.
All I can say is "Wow!" 

Let me introduce you to Noel...

(This was "Crazy Hair Night" at Awanas - isn't she cute?)

Noel is nine years old and attends Awanas at her church in Show Low, Arizona.   (Do you detect a theme developing here?) 

Dinah Monahan also spoke to this Awana group about her trip to Ethiopia and of the many families in the in a rural village living without adequate shelter.  Noel immediately wanted to help.  Her birthday is near Christmas so she saved both her birthday and Christmas money, combining them to buy a house for a family in Ethiopia!

Here is the note she wrote that accompanied her gift:



Noel is obviously a very smart and tender-hearted young lady!  Don't you love how God is at work in the hearts of His children?  They respond so readily when they see a need.  

Soon, I hope to have some pictures to share of some of the families who are recipients of these houses.  (I've put in a special request to the photographer!)  

 Thank you, Noel!

Truely we plant, others water but it is God that gives the increase. And in this case...it is in the hearts of children. Who would think that, from speaking to two Awana children's groups there would be two new homes for families in Gutamumuu. I love being part of this community of believers! Dinah
