It was an especially hot day, J– was gone on a business trip and I had one of those no good, terrible awful days. The kids were in bed (finally!) and I decided to cheer myself up with a treat. I opened our food stash for some fruit to find a package of freeze dried fruit that had been mailed to us – on it was written scripture…it was exactly what my soul needed to keep going. Words cannot express the ways your thoughtfulness blesses us when we need to be encouraged. Thank you. Please read the bottom of this post if you want to send a financial gift

Flat rate boxes are our recommendation for shipping they help alot with shipping charges! PLEASE PLACE “garage sale” prices on the customs form and do not include any type of packaging slip from a company or we will be charged an arm and a leg to get it out of customs. Much thanks!
Ideas for the kids:
Right now they are most excited about Adventures in Odyssey 🙂 If you send $ to the address below (stateside) with a note that says kids odyssey we can order an MP3 for them online to listen to right here and let them know who its from. An album is around $17 and one episode is $1.99.
They love legos or creative craft projects
Any type of reading book for the girls (They are reading at a 5th grade level so anything goes!).
Small portable toys. Felt food, legos. Holiday craft projects are very fun. Favorite games that are age appropriate or family appropriate are a huge hit (and things we play with teammates and local friends!) For boys any thing non army print, crafts that are boy/ age appropriate puzzles under 50 pieces, legos, or costumes (for the boys).
Ideas for J–:
Zebra 301 fine tip pens (seriously this is all he keeps asking for!)
Ideas for Abuk
Gift cards for kindle books
Anything ginger flavored from trader joes
Our biggest need right now is money to put toward clothes for the wee little one. We can get alot of things here in the open air market. Money can also be used to help us with meals once the baby arrives as we transition. The best to help with these is to mail a check to the below address marked “baby”. This will allow us to buy things in Kenya for the baby from you!
