I had an email from Rebecca's Mom (our other little entrepreneur) recently saying she had just signed up for the HealthEd Connect automatic blog. She noted that Rebecca would also enjoy the Blog. She said "she [Rebecca] talks about the kids from Zambia like they're friends of hers; she'll appreciate hearing more intimately what's going on in their lives." The kids in Zambia feel the same way about Rebecca. They have her picture posted in the new classrooms and always ask about her when we visit.

|Christmas project kick-off|
|Have Shamba Bank, Will Travel!|
The adults in the congregation are selecting a card for school lunches, school supplies, or teacher salaries and dropping their cards along with their donations into the shoe-box school building. Both children and adults are writing messages on African card/envelopes to be delivered to the children in January when a team goes to Zambia. This will very likely be the first and only piece of mail the kids in our schools have ever received.

The project was developed by 3 of our Connector Specialists, Callie Streich, Lisa Ash, and Matt Jones. If any of you Blog followers are interested in obtaining directions for making your own Shamba Huts or obtaining any of the other items used in this project, just email Lisa at email@example.com. We're having so much fun with this project we'd love to share this clever idea with you!!

The Child Support Specialist team in Zamtan have actively visited the homes, intervened on behalf of children being abused, and truly become "mothers" to the community orphans and vulnerable children. In addition, most of the CSS, including Angela, care for orphans in their own homes. These are the umbrella ladies featured a few weeks ago in the Blog.
Jaylene, one of our most creative supporters in California has yet another enterprise going. She is making lovely wrapped pencils with duct tape flowers of every color imaginable. She's selling her creations for $1 each and donating the funds to HealthEd Connect. How cool is that??? I'm sure the children in Zambia will love seeing a picture of Entrepreneur Jaylene working for them. Nothing more fun and appreciated than kids helping Kids.
