God's blessings poured out

I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has donated clothing and desitin for us to take to Ella's orphanage to bless the children left behind.  It kills me to think of each one of their faces and know that most of them do not have anyone coming for them.  In Ella's country, a big bow on your head means you are an orphanage favorite.  A friend of mine, Leanne Barton, is making some bows for me to take to Ella's orphanage on our final trip, so that all of those little girls can feel the favor of their heavenly father. Thank you, Leanne!  Also, a lady who lives near us, Sarah, saw our profile on RR and offered to donate toothbrushes, toothpaste, and baby wash for us to take to the orphanage.  And Orphans At Play sent me a suitcase full of donations for the older children in another orphanage nearby.  It makes me want to cry when I think of all the blessings we will have the privilege of pouring out. 

Here are some pics of the items donated by the ladies in my neighborhood and church:

This suitcase is packed to the gills!

And thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Baileys so far! 
We have raised $466.50 to their FSP and $1,010 to their chip-in.  That's a total of $1,476.50!!! They can only access the chip-in money for their home study (FSP can't be cashed out until their first trip), so they still need $990 to pay for their home study.  There are only 2 days left in our giveaway.  Can we raise $990 for them in 2 days??  I know we can do this with God's help, so please share, share, share!

Here is the link to the Baileys' page for their chip-in:
