Why I am writing this note is to bless you (Team Tasfa) who came to visit our FOVC at Shanto, Ethiopia. Before the Howletts came in February 2010, we were in a terrible situation and to tell you the truth frankly we didn’t have anything to feed, clothe and educate the orphaned children. God knows we didn’t know what we are going to do at all. Let alone the kids and the money to pay for some technical staff, I myself didn’t have enough money to pay for my own meals and clothing. So what I had been plenty was hope, faith, love and keep praying to God. We thank God, Lory and Dave came at the right time. Then my children’s and my staff and my spirit revived and everything started growing fast. Different generous people (the Penlones, Katie and Becky and Emebeth) came to Shanto with many supplies and love, FOVC partnered with Ethiopian Orphan Relief, Inc. (EOR) and many people from all over USA and other western countries are showing their interest to support FOVC’s effort.
Finally, you (Team Tasfa) which is really the team of HOPE and encouragement came to Shanto with much blesses and gifts to FOVC, its children, the whole community, to my staff…etc. We can say a lot but not in words on blog. But I truly say it is God’s help from heaven.
You may know that most of my technical staff and teachers were not been paid salary for couples of months. But thanks to you (Team Tasfa) now we have paid the staff their salary and they all are too much happy. Besides, it was Ethiopian Christmas time and FOVC’s kids and many other kids from the village have had enough clothing for their Christmas.
Therefore, we would like to thank and bless all of you (Team Tasfa, EOR, Team Tasfa’s families and friends and etc) in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Be blessed in your works!!!!
With the money which you (Team Tasfa) provided us, we bought sewing machine to train our widows, teff and cereals which is enough for two months to feed FOVC’s children, order dining tables and chairs for the children, the children are being given lunch, we bought color printer, etc. We are now so blessed with you, thank God. Concerning child sponsorship, Sharon is communicating with you and others and we bless her in God’s Mighty name for what she has been doing for my poorest children.
Thank you all very so much for all what you (Team Tasfa) have done and been doing for us!!!
