Charity Auction Thanks

Today I was able to sponsor a 10-year-old boy, Jolien, from Haiti. I saw a picture of him and I wish I could see his face when he hears that he has a sponsor. I spoke with someone from Compassion International today and am finding out if I can post a picture of him on my site. Of course, they have certain security procedures that I do have to follow. I want to thank every one of you who took part in the Charity Auction. I promise to keep you all up-to-date on Jolien. It takes about 2 weeks to receive his info packet, and then we can send him a letter tomorrow and will await his answer. He writes a letter in Haitian, which will be translated and sent back to us.

That's great news John. I'm so glad the austion was successful and look forward to seeing the others do well too :-)

I hope you will be able to post pic and info, it would be nice to see how Jolien is getting on.

Good luck with this and nice one for thinking of it :-D
