On Wednesday, February 16th the
Lone Oak High School Beta Club
The students and their parents have spent the past few months working together diligently to collect donations from corporations, local businesses and individuals in the community!
Thanks to their great efforts, and the generosity of so many supporters, more than $20,000 in funds and supplies will be put to use, making a difference to countless orphan children this week!
The group would like to thank the many corporate and individual sponsors who have made this possible! It often seems that with 147 MILLION ORPHANS around the world, the problem is just to big for our meek efforts to make a difference.
Your contributions will make a difference for so many, and hopefully encourage others that it is possible to MAKE A DIFFERENCE, ONE CHILD AT A TIME!!!
Please join us in the parking lot of Lone Oak High School at 2pm on Wednesday to help send the team off! We encourage you to follow along through this blog daily!
Please post words of encouragement throughout the week for the students as they embark on this incredible journey to aid orphan children!!!
The kids were precious as they were getting ready to leave! The nervous excitement was tangible. I was grateful to get bunches of hugs! It was wonderful to see them start out on this great adventure! As a friend of mine said, “may they find the real needs and meet them with love!”
I think it is a wonderful thing for the teens to leave their zone of comfort and start exploring the world and I hope that it is the first of many. There is so much to be done in the world and each has talents to contribute. My admiration goes out to the parents who are letting their children spread their wings and begin the journey of finding their place in our world. Cydney’s Aunt Mickela,Vienna, Austria
