My daughter, Fiona and her friend are preparing to raise some funds tomorrow.  They are selling snow cones for the orphanage fund.  They have graciously decided to donate all the proceeds.  What kindhearted girls to want to help other children!

I have spent several hours today, working on a strategic plan for the next five years!  And thinking about funding.

One of the most important things, I believe, is becoming self sustaining.  It is less stressful for employees and orphans if you are not constantly wondering about a grant being funded or not.  I think that using grants to enhance our programs will be a good use, but not to sustain us.  As a grant funded employee, the stress could become almost unbearable…never knowing if you are going to have a job soon.

There are so many “little” details…  Benefits, travel, health, the list could go on and on….but I am sooo happy about our progress this far.

Please continue to pray for the right staff and volunteers!
