Your Purchases Helped…

It’s time again for a look at how your purchases helped grow the adoption grants of some precious orphans.

In October, ADDIE was my Orphan of the Month. Unfortunately, no purchases were made in October so we were not able to contribute to Addie‘s grant. BUT… don’t worry… Addie will be Orphan of the Month in January, so please do make a purchase during this month and help grow Addie‘s adoption grant! Please also be praying for Addie‘s forever family to step forward for her – she has only 9 months before she ages out of the adoption system.

In November and December, i took part in Reece’s Rainbow’s Angel Tree Fundraiser. It is a big fundraiser for over 200 of the special needs orphans listed on their website. The goal was to raise US$1000 for each of those children. Everyone gets to pick one child to warrior / root / fundraise for.

Jasper has aged out! Please pray for him and his future.

My Angel Tree child was JASPER. My son and i have prayed for Jasper for over a year now, hoping and praying a family will come forward for him. These last 2 months was our last push for Jasper‘s family to come for him.

Your purchases in November came up to US$30. In December, they came up to US$48. And then there were the sales at the Christmas Market i took part in, which brought in US$147. So in 2 months, your purchases have contributed a total of US$112.50 to Jasper‘s adoption grant.

Unfortunately, Jasper has aged out of his country’s adoption system. Which means he would not be able to make use of this grant money.

However, it is not wasted – by no means! His grant of almost US$9500 was gifted to 2 boys who are also listed with Reece’s Rainbow. They are Erich and Benji. Both of these boys have just months before they age out too. Erich has 5 months and Benji has 7 months! So please do be praying for these boys, pray that their forever families would see them and step up for them asap! Click on their names to find out more.

Do also be praying for Jasper as he is only 14 and has to manage this wide world all on his own. He may be able to stay at the institute for a while more but i do not know what happens to him after that. i have been told that sometimes these special needs orphans get sent to another institute if they are thought to be unable to manage the outside world. Otherwise, he would be turned out into the streets with little education/skills to fend for himself. i will be praying that God watches over him always. Pray with me.

Thank you all so much for all your support in 2014!

i look forward to your continued support in 2015! Come and shop!

Your Contributions Making a Difference…

It’s time to look back at the last 3 months and how your purchases from Angel Crafts Shop has helped some precious orphans grow their adoption grants.

Lolita was the Orphan of the Month for both July and August because everyone was on summer holidays and no one shopped during July. We sold US$34 worth of items during those two months. So Lolita‘s grant grew by US$17.

Cody was the Orphan of the Month for September. We sold US$66 worth of items last month. So US$33 was given to Cody‘s grant, which takes his grant into double digits.

Please do continue to PRAY for both Lolita and Cody; pray for their well-being and for their respective forever families to come for them. Do also SHARE their stories so more people may help them.

Thank you so very much for all your support.

Please continue to shop at Angel Crafts Shop; share Angel Crafts Shop and how a little shopping can help grow an orphan’s adoption grant. You and your family and friends can play a small part in helping bring an orphan closer to a forever home.

The Orphan of the Month for October is Addie! Read more about her here.

Thank you.

It Has Been 3 Months…

Yep… Angel Crafts Shop has been opened for 3 months now!

Thank you all for your wonderful support and encouragement! It has been my honour to have you all as customers and supporters.

Today i just like to take a quick look again at the precious children (our special needs orphans) whose adoption grants you have helped to grow over these 3 months.

Angel Crafts Shop was launched on March 25th 2014, which left only 6 days till the end of March so i decided we will simply have 2 kiddos from the launch date till the end of April.

Jasper needs his forever family to step forward ASAP - he ages out in a matter of months!

Our March/April kids were Jasper and Jason. We sold US$52 worth of items so 50% of that – US$26 was divided equally between the 2 boys’ grants. They each received US$13.

Jason is waiting for his forever family. Are you his family?

Jasper and Jason are still waiting for their forever families to step forward so please do continue to pray for them and share their stories. You can click on their names or pictures to find out more about them.

Pray especially for Jasper who has only 6 months till he ages out of his country’s adoption system and becomes “unadoptable”.

Andrew is shy but will do well in a loving home.

Our May Orphan of the Month was Andrew. We sold US$81 worth of items so Andrew’s adoption grant received US$40.50. He too is still waiting on his forever family. Do say a little prayer for him and share his story too. To read more about Andrew, click on his name or picture.

Mollie needs a caring family to help her reach her potential.

Our June Orphan of the Month was Mollie. We sold US$83 worth of items so we were able to grow Molllie‘s adoption grant by US$41.50. We continue to hope and pray for a forever family for her. Please remember her in your prayers and share her story. Click on her name or picture for more information about Mollie.

It has been wonderful to watch how people get behind these children and support them through a little online shopping. i hope to be able to continue to work with you all to make a difference in more children’s lives, through growing their adoption grants and sharing their stories.

Thank you so much. We would not have been able to give to these children without your continued support.
