As anyone who has ever sold a house knows, even though you're usually making money when you actually sell it, the getting it ready for sell process can be expensive. Then you add on to that all the other financial demands that just happen in life (van breaks down, homeschool books need to be bought, etc, etc.) and before you know it, you're broke. Ka-put. Finished. Breathing fumes. Eating lots and lots of beans and rice.

That's where we stand right now. Due to issues related to Hurricane Isaac and new government laws where home loans are concerned, we've still not finished selling our house and we're still sitting on empty. But we still have financial obligations to keep.

One of those commitments is to our Children's HopeChest sponsored girls in Swaziland. To raise the money I need to cover their needs --- food, education, and carepoint support amonng others --- I am selling two t-shirts.

They are both brand new. They are also hard to come by.

The first one, this Timbali Craft shirt, was bought in Swaziland and, as far as I know, can't be bought here in the States yet. I have one size large for sale. It is a female cut shirt. I'm wearing an identical one in the photo so you can get an idea on how it fits.

Timbali Crafts is a ministry of Adventures in Missions. It gives women in Swaziland an opportunity to sew purses and other items to provide financially for their families.

The second one is a lime green shirt like the mission team took to all the kids at the Bheveni Carepoint last year.

These are also no longer available so the fact that I have a brand new size large means that you're getting something very special. I especially love the back of this shirt, as you can see in this photo of DeNise Cason visiting Bheveni.

You can feel good about buying these shirts knowing that you're not only looking good, you're also helping me to provide for some precious girls in Swaziland.

Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow.

If you want to buy a shirt, I am selling them each at $20.  Just leave me a comment and the first person who responds for each shirt is the one who gets it. Just make sure you let me know if you want the green or blue shirt and give me a way of contacting you for shipping information.

Praise God! A friend who lives here in our area and volunteers at We Will Go just came and bought both shirts and threw in some bonus bucks, too! Going now to joyfully pay on our sponsorship commitment.
