What a great way to spend an afternoon

My sister, Penny, beat everyone! She went home with some
great prizes!

The serious table

The fun table

We just completed our first official fund-raiser for our home in Uganda. We are building a home through the Global Orphan Project with the help of many generous friends and supporters. Each home we're able to build will house and support 8-10 children. It's exciting to me that through an afternoon of poker fun with close friends, we were able to raise $600 toward that great cause!

Thank you to everyone who considered the children who will be off the street and came for a good time today (or simply gave because you couldn't make it). We sincerely appreciate your time and financial support. It's ironic to me that we can help others so easily, with hardly any sacrifice. It seems like it should be harder than this. When I get more energy (?), I am going to post what brought us to this charity and this newfound passion. Until then......


  1. I definitely want to hear more about the "what brought us to this charity" story! You guys have such giving hearts. How cool that you were able to raise $600! By the way, your hair looks really cute and it was good to see a picture of Brooke too since she never posts any of herself on her blog! :)

  2. Wendy and Jason I can't tell you what a blessing it is to be able to share this life story with you and you family... someday soon to be even bigger!
    God has called to you and you have LISTENED and are putting that to action. WOW! Clay and I will continue to follow you and prayerfully and financially support you in His plan that you are so obediently following in love. Jill
