Celebration week continues!
What a fun week we are having! We are hearing from so many of you~ thank you for your words of encouragement and blessing! A lot of tickets are going into the hat~ are there any with YOUR name on them? To find out what the gifts are and how to be eligible to win check out the blog posts for the past two days!
In the meantime~ back to bringing you a good report. A great report!
As you may know, we are raising funds for an orphanage here in Jerusalem~
Re'ut Boy's Home.
Re'ut is part of the Orr Shalom group that provides intervention for children at risk. The Re'ut home is for the most severe cases. In this video about Orr Shalom you will meet Tzvika, a graduate of Re'ut Boys Home. The footage of the children playing basketball, being taught etc is from the home itself.
Tzvika is now dancing with the Bat Sheva Dance group in Israel.
We have a goal of raising $20,000 to help build a new kitchen for the home. Someone recently donated $1500 !!! This generous donation brings us to 20% of our goal! Click here to learn more Re'ut Boy's Home and how you can join in!
Earlier this week The 2 Spies along with some of our grandchildren went to Re'ut to deliver some games and sports equipment. We had all gone shopping and on the advice of our grandchildren, we found many wonderful choices. (It's best to have a 'child consultant' in these matters) Here is a picture of our 'haul'
While we were at the home, the boys were very curious about us and what was in the bags. We were happy to meet them and chat for just a bit. Cute kids! We're sorry that we cannot post photos of the boys~ a matter of privacy.
Please consider how you can help these orphans in Israel.
That's it for today. Be sure to register for your tickets! We'll be back Sunday morning!
Shabbat Shalom, all~
