Hey Sister Sol Sister

I got to spend most of the day with Ella and her baby sister, Sol. Sol means "sun" in Spanish - and she is truly a ray of sunshine! She is the most perfect little baby, complete with lots of thick black hair, and a dimple in her left cheek when she smiles!




And from around the world....

The Raining Season is back in Africa. My good friend, Jessie, has gone a little ahead of the rest of the gang. She has already had a couple of amazing days with the 82 children in the orphanage that the Raining Season has opened in Sierra Leone. I love reading Jessie's blogs. http://anyroadanycost.blogspot.com/

Here's just a piece of one of her blogs which talks about one of the beautiful little girls that needs a sponsor. It is only $20 a month to sponsor a child!!! You wouldn't believe the difference that just $20 a month can do for one of these children!!! Sponsorship includes things like clothing, shoes, proper nutrition, personal items such as toothpaste, shampoo, etc. sanitary items and undergarments for the girls.

Here's Jessie's (Auntie Essie as the kids are calling her!) words about Safianatu:
I do want to first let you know about a child who needs a sponsorship filled ($20/month- personal sponsor)... her name is Safianatu. She is 13 years old (I believe). She is HILARIOUS... she has the best smile... and is always helping the little ones out. Both of her parents died within the year last year and she and her 2 sisters are now at the center (they are from Shenge) She doesn't speak much creo (or English) but she has been teaching us Shako which is the language in Shenge. She starts talking really fast and singing really fast and makes everyone laugh cause it sounds like she is just jabbering off... she LOVES to make people laugh! She is BEAUTIFUL! If you are interested in sponsoring her email info@therainingseason.org!! :)

That's Safianatu hanging onto Auntie Essie in the middle!

The Raining Season is such an incredible organization run by people just like you and me who happened into a situation in Sierra Leone that they couldn't turn their backs on. They weren't prepared for what they found, but they have spent every moment of their lives ever since trying to help. They saw children in need and in just a couple short years have set up an entire orphanage dedicated to helping children in need! It is truly amazing the work they have already done. And such a little bit from us can go a LOOOOONG way for helping them!

Peace. Love. Fiddle. Around the World!
