This past January, we took all our kids to Swaziland to see their future home and also to minister. One of our favorite places to go during our time there was the Sandra Lee Centre in Mbabane. My kids had a blast just loving on the kids who live there, kids who were abandoned at birth in the local hospital or left without parents for other reasons.

Sadly, this is an all too common occurence for the children of Swaziland and most of those parentless children don't find themselves in a loving situation like the Sandra Lee Centre or even with a carepoint to go to once a day for a meal and other needs to be met.

P1180803 Patrick and Baby

As I have mentioned before, my son Patrick will be going this summer for a month to minister to children in Swaziland. He will be serving with Adventures in Missions mostly at carepoints. He also has to raise over $4,000 in order to go.

From time to time over the next few months, we will be selling various items to raise money for this summer. Today, we've got a pair of beautiful earrings made in Mozambique, Africa, out of horn. We are selling them for $12 plus shipping and handling.

Mozambican horn earrings for sale to raise money for Patrick's mission trip with AIM to Swaziland.  Asking price is $12 plus shipping and handling.

If you don't want to buy the earrings but would just like to make a donation, we're totally cool with that, too, or as the Swazis would say, "kuhle".

Just follow this link:

Then choose "Ambassador" for program and type in "Patrick MacLellan" for participant's name.  And if you don't mind, shoot me a message or leave me a comment letting me know you're making a donation.  That way, we can make sure it got credited to the correct account.

Thanks and whether you can help financially or not, we really do ask for your prayers.  Money is nice, but prayers are essential!  And I don't just say that because it sounds like something nice to say.  It is the truth and we couldn't do anything effective for His Kingdom without it.
