11 Days!! So excited!

Update posted 7 years ago

I have not updated this page for a while. I'm so sorry. I have been keeping updates on our Facebook page. If you have not joined that, please do. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2043521459214512/  Stockings are hung and now we have to wait. 11 days and a wake up before we get to pick up "D". We are getting excited. Worked all morning converting a letter, more information on us, house rules and bathroom information from English to Latvian. That is harder then I thought it would be.  We have completed her room and everything that we planned to do. If you are still looking to help, here are a few things you can do to help.

Wish List

Funds for entertainment (We will still need a few more)

If you would like to help, here are a few things still needed.

Gift cards for shoes (size still unknown)

Gift cards for entertainment, dinning out

Gift cards to Old Navy, Justice, or other girly type stores.

Travel size hygiene items and toothbrushes. (These are being sent back to the orphanage)

Lastly, you are still welcome to donate. All funds will go towards our re-host. We plan to re-host in June. All donations are tax deductible. 

**Please make sure you include "Wheat Family & L0291E" in the comment section when making a donation. This will ensure your donation is properly credited. **

From Mid December- Mid January our family will be hosting a 13yr girl from an orphanage in Eastern Europe in our home. We are so excited about this opportunity. The experience is made possible through a non-profit organization called Project 143 and your donations. Project 143 allows children who are surrounded by war and poverty to enjoy Christmas in a family where they are loved. We hope to help raise her spirits, confidence, and independence while teaching them practical life skills and a little English in the process. 

Deuteronomy 10:18 says "He ensures that orphans and widows receive justice. He shows love to the foreigners living among you and gives them food and clothing."

We are inviting you to come along side us on this adventure. We can’t do it alone, and we want to build a community of support around our family as we pour into this young lady. We are considering this hosting experience as our reverse mission trip. Instead of traveling elsewhere to serve people, we are bringing her to us.

Any donation is great!  Project 143 is a non-profit organization, and all donations go directly into her account to pay for travel expenses, visas, etc. to come to the States.  Thank you for your consideration!!
