What could be better than an Ethiopian welcome, FOVC style?

Save the Date!

Things at FOVC just keep heating up. Oh yea!

On Sunday, February 27, our church will focus its messages on the plight of orphans and widows. I understand Dave and me, or Dave and me and Team Tasfa, or our adoptions, or our trip, or FOVC...or a combination of all of these topics...will be included. Please pray that people will be inspired to "do more" for orphans and widows!

We will also have the opportunity to get the FOVC children sponsored by folks at our church. Wow! We are hoping and praying that the remaining 35 children will get sponsors that weekend. That would be amazing, truly more than all I would have considered asking or imagining. (Yes, I'm dealing with the possibility that my faith may be too small...)

In anticipation of this exciting day, several Team Tasfa'ers are flying in, including Sharon, who is our Social Worker and Sponsorship Coordinator....and Julie, who has come onto the FOVC Board with us...and Dr. Jo, who with her husband, has come onto the FOVC Board, too, and who started this amazing medical aid organization in Africa.

Of course, our Colorado Contingent will be around, too. 
Team Tasfa just doesn't quit!

Finally, to take advantage of the excitement and momentum, we'll have a fundraiser for FOVC, too. Here are the details about our "Little Bit of Tasfa" event:
  • It's an open house on Sunday afternoon, February 27, 3pm-6pm;
  • At the House of Howlett in southwest Longmont;
  • We'll have coffee and popcorn (or course) and maybe some additional treats, too;
  • There'll be a silent auction for Ethiopian handcrafts and other items;
  • And we'll debut our fabulous new FOVC t-shirts!
Please plan to stop by! There will be so many friends and adoptive families...."Little Bit of Tasfa" will be THE PLACE to BE that day!

By the way, if you have anything to donate for the silent auction, please let me know. If we all do a little bit, we can all do a LOT!

(And real invites will soon be plastered on Facebook and sent via email, by the way.)
