Ghosts & goblins you say? No way!

Glen and I had our first 'Halloween' event at the church which we gladly like to call 'Carnival night with games and costumes". We aren't big Halloween fans, mainly because after searching the roots and meaning behind Halloween there are some strong Satanic themes. So basically since God is not for it, neither are we. However, we did a fun event tonight at the church and about 25 kids showed up! It was a special treat to have us all together eating, playing tons of games and running around in silly costumes. Hope you enjoy the pics of the evening. We thank the Lord for the opportunity to serve there!

ZOE Children's Homes

Hello all,

It's been awhile since we've blogged but I (Shilo) recently went to a fundraising event for a Christian organization called ZOE (means "life") which sets up children's homes in the hub of Thailand where human trafficking has been taking place. I don't know if you most of you know this (because I didn't!) but human trafficking is where they are selling children as sex slaves in Thailand and believe it or not it is spreading to other countries, even to the United States. One story I heard that continues to blow me away is that of a little girl who was sold as a sex slave at the age of 7 years old and had up to 10 partners a day, whom later died of AIDS at 11 years old. Can you even imagine that?! It has broken my heart to hear what evil men/women can do to these innocent little children. Please take a minute to learn more about this growing worldwide crisis and learn how you can help: http://www.zoechildrenshomes.org/
