2016 Re-Cap

We are grateful for all the donations made throughout the year. Here is a re-cap of what was accomplished in 2016:

As you read through this, take note on how little it takes to make a huge difference in people's lives. Consider all the things you could change in your life to love your neighbor (people) as yourself; for example: Eating out, how much does that cost, a round of golf, how much does that cost, weekly purchases of coffee from the coffee shop, or the desserts you buy ???...all kinds of things we treat ourselves to and have no "need" for, while others are in need of daily bread, water, medicine....

1. 3/18/2016 Patrick 6 years old from Siaya, Kenya was given the $350 he need for a possibly life saving surgery.

2. 5/3/2016 Irene and Pauline suffering from Sickle cell anemia had their medical needs met & continue to be met. Costing about $60 a month per child. TBOW pays a portion of this because other kind donors are also helping.

3. March 2016 "We are happy to announce the success of our first contribution that has enabled people the access to clean water in Kenya, Africa." Providing water for dozens of families for just over $2,000

4. 9/9/ 2016 Uganda, Africa! Our Second Well is Completed!

5. Lazarus in Africa received $200 to care for 9 children that were in need.

6. 12/15/2016 Kenya Project stairs made for safe water drawing & spring made secure from contamination.

7. 12/2016 Salve "motivator" was posted and successful; The Charity:water fundraising campaign we did was closed on December 31, 2016, and $5,180 is being sent to the field.

We were also able to reach out to many right here in America in know those down & out people we see from day to day...One man had been on the streets over a course of months I believe: he had been waiting for someone to help. He was so thankful we helped that he raised his hands & thanked God!

This may not seem like a whole lot for a whole year...but remember we were just 3 people with a burden to live simply, that others may simply live.

We are blessed to see our efforts prosper and that others are contributing to the cause.

We look forward to seeing what combined efforts will help us accomplish in 2017....stay tuned...
