**I am reposting part of my last blog because we just received a new shipment of Uganda bead necklaces and they are beautiful!! We sold out of our last shipment in about 2 weeks so they are all the rage:) Just wanted to share the news because I truly love these beautiful necklaces!!***
Now our newest bit of news, which I am super excited about! We are also selling Uganda necklaces as a fundraiser! We purchase them from a wonderful organization, 147 Million Orphans. It is run by two moms with 13 children between them, 7 of which are adopted. These women sell items that promote adoption but also help families fundraise for their own adoptions. These necklaces come with a neat little bio with info on it.
"147 is honored to share the story of our sisters in Uganda who hand make these necklaces from recycled paper. They roll the beads by hand, dip them in varnish, and thread them onto the string. Prior to learning how to make these beads, most of the women 'picked trash' or turned to prostitution to provide for their children. By purchasing the necklace, you help a mother make a sustainable income to provide for her family. This purchase also helps feed a child in Uganda."
(Yes the price did go up by $5 because the price through Uganda went up! Sorry!)

So there you have it! Things are progressing...even though at times it feels like it is slowly:) Thank you everyone for your prayers and support! We are so, so blessed and so thankful for what the Lord is doing IN us along the way! More on that, next time!
