Philbert and Bonnie are parents

Last year we started a little project with 2 pigs in hopes that some day we would have piglets. As with anything it takes time to see results and this little pet project has been fun from the start. healingeyes.org has new additions to the family, 5 baby piglets. This pro

You are going to fail often

I want to try even though I might fail.. I'll keep on making those new mistakes as we continually hit walls, get hurt feelings, fail, get up, then fail again, get lied to, cheated, taken advantage of...and then keep on trying. Anyone that wants to help the world and start a

Compassion changes lives

A little happiness on a gloomy Michigan day. We have raised $98 so far towards our cement budget of $2,100. Can you help put us over $100 before Midnight tonight? These 100+ kids really could use a roof over their heads during the rainy season. The rain there is very differe

I guess this is what I am

Shut off from the outside world and now even separated from my new husband. So strange to say 'husband' again after losing my first husband to cancer. Yet here I am, 6 months married, back in Africa but not a widow this time. How did this all start? A huge storm destroyed m

Uganda Update 1/18/17

It's been a sad night here in Africa. Donald just left to fly back to America. He has a 6 hour drive at night, and then a 3 hour wait at the airport - all before his 20+ hours of flying. Pray he makes it to the airport with no car accidents... Traveling at night is dangerous

Dush, Shrubs, School Supplies

We've been traveling miles down dusty roads. The roads here are incredibly dusty because it's the dry season. Translation?.. no rain in over 3 months plus the hot African Sun equals dust on dust on dust. Today we went all day without food, save a piece of bread with peanut b
