BIRTHDAYS, MUSIC & SMILES!
This may be the first time you’ve read about one of our NAOMI adventures so we’ll give you a link to their website. Please visit their site to see how extra special they are and how you might be able to help. https://thenaomihouse.org/
We began a new tradition in celebrating the birthdays for the month. For October we had two great teenagers receive gifts, blew out candles and listened to all of our melodic voices sing Happy Birthday!
We had planned for a spaghetti dinner, but then we found out the kids might prefer pizza. That’s when our culinary imaginations kicked into overdrive!
Our new invention from the Compassion Ministries kitchen is called, “Pizza-Ghetti.” If you're a nutritionist you might call that carb-on-carb! We did have some fruit and pepperoni has about .05 g of protein! Anyway the kids loved it and it made them smile. Our goal is to create heart-smiles.
We’re grateful for all the volunteers who help us make the NAOMI young people feel loved. Some of us were on site and others worked behind the scenes. They bought gifts, wrapped gifts, wrote Bible verses in the gifts and prayed for the children and staff.
In November we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving along with five birthdays. If you’d like to sponsor a gift or two, please let us know. 716-830-8240. We’re going to call the birthday celebrations by a special name, “Cracked Pot Birthdays.” The name comes from a story about how all of us have flaws that God can use as strengths to create things of beauty. The story will be told to honor Sean Steven Manygoats. Sean had some cracks, but was a loving kind father, son, grandson and friend.
A few of the pictures below show some drywall in need of repair. There’s also a need for someone with a trencher to help put in a security monitoring system. It’s extremely important to go the extra mile to keep these extra special young people extra safe. Please text or call if you can help.
Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody. Jesus loves you and so do we.
