Got a computer?

:o) Well of course you do if you are reading this huh? But I know someone who needs one and wondered if you would be able to help... or at least pray for provision.

One of the things I love about the World Wide Web is the fact that you can speak to people all over the World! Cool huh?!

While in Ethiopia in April we had the privilege to work with our new friends Samy and Ruth at the Mercy Development center in Addis. They take in children that have been living on the streets, or would be if they didn't give them a home. They are pretty amazing, as are the girls that we were able to hang out with while there. They taught me so much about what it means to live out the faith of Christ. In ways that continue to have me searching for Him in new ways daily.

Well.. one of the things that I love about the www is the fact that they have a gmail account…and so do I…so we can chat. LOVE that! The hours are very different, and the power doesn’t always work but they are able to talk to me on their tiny little lap top.

They asked me the other day to pray that God would help provide a desk top computer for them so that they could teach the girls computer skills. These girls are already at a disadvantage as society looks at them differently because of where they live so while they go to school, do their homework, work outside of the compound and do all that they can to make a better life they still need skills. Skills that having a computer would afford them.

A desk top computer would cost them 400.00 USD. Crazy how cheap that is isn’t it?

Can you help? If you go to this site and give online you make sure you note “YWAM Girl's Compound” or you can mail them a check to the address on that page and make sure you write on it what it’s for….

Will you help? Every little bit helps!!! I know these girls, and they deserve all things wonderful!!

May I post this on my website? I get a couple of thousand readers a day and I try to post a "Help A Family Friday" post each week.
