Here we sit in rainy Oregon, waiting for the wheels to turn.
Each week we run into people who say, "Oh, you're still here! I thought for sure you'd be back in Africa by now! When are you leaving?"
There are a couple of ways to interpret that, of course, but we choose to assume only the best!
Our answer is, "We wish we knew!"
We've got a meeting in Portland next week that will let us know more definitively whether we'll be heading to "our" orphanage (where the dream began), or whether we'll be trailblazing our way to Zimbabwe.
In the meantime, we've set up a nonprofit organization in Oregon called Isaiah 58 Missions. This will allow us to fundraise for our Zimbabwean orphans, wherever they may be, as well as for other missions we'd like to support. It will give us maximum flexibility to follow wherever God calls us.
If you shop online, I'd like to introduce you to The Link Mosaic. The Link Mosaic is a charity mall - a percentage of all purchases made through this portal are donated to a charity. And for the month of March, that charity is Isaiah 58 Missions' Zimbabwe project.
So please bookmark this page. If you're making a purchase through Amazon.com, eBay, or a number of other big online retailers, start here. And you'll be making a contribution to Zimbabwe's orphans, without any added cost to you.
