is no program in place to help her succeed. Although some effort has been made
to correct and to protect her eyes, the care available here is not adequate for
her needs. She also suffers greatly due to the harsh African

My friend, Ruth
Cox, http://sheltering-wings.org/ shared with
me that these children are available for adoption and they are all in great
need! I am able to photo list these children because I do not work in any
professional capacity with Burkina or an agency that works with Burkina! I am
simply burdened for these children since the first day I saw OLIVIA's photo! She
is so much like our Avigayil and it breaks my heart that she has no Mommy and
Daddy to love her and care for her and to feed her ice cream like Avigayil!
Don't you just want to
love these children so that the sad eyes can be replaced with joy and
belonging! OH HOW MY HEART ACHES FOR EACH OF THESE

Some facts about Burkina:
Faso has one of the lowest GDP per capita figures in the world: $1,200.
Agriculture represents 32% of its gross domestic product and occupies 80% of the
working population. It consists mostly of livestock but also, especially in the
south and southwest, of growing sorghum,
pearl millet, maize (corn), peanuts,
rice and cotton. A large part of the economic activity of the country is funded
by international aid. Burkina – is a landlocked country in west Africa. It is surrounded by six countries: Mali to
the north, Niger to
the east, Benin to
the southeast, Togo and
the south, and Côte d'Ivoire to the southwest. The country's capital is Ouagadougou.
When I repeat the phrase over and over...BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS...do you usually think of adults doing something to get the word out about the plight of the orphans around the world? Take a look at what one YOUNG VOICE CAN DO...

Check out the news story on Channel 3 in Michigan and then come back to read the rest of this post (if I were a computer genius I could just post the video here on my blog...but I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DO THAT...so check out the link and come back and continue reading!!! YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS and MISS helping out with this amazing project....
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A West Michigan girl with a big heart isn't even 13 yet, but she's already helped hundreds of kids around the globe.
Hannah Weal lives in Kalamazoo, and says that a couple years ago, she woke up feeling down, and looked to her teddy bear for comfort.
She realized that if it could make her feel better, it could make other kids feel better too, so she set out to do it.
Hannah admires Mother Teresa, so she decided to collect stuffed animals for orphans in Calcutta, India.
She named her project Hannah Hopes.
This year, Hannah is sending love to orphans in Bulgaria and The Philippines.
She's collected around 215 stuffed animals so far, but is hoping for 1,000.
If you would like to donate toys or money to help pay for postage, you can do it through Hope Reformed Church in Kalamazoo.
The phone number there is (269) 349-9788.
Stuffed animal donations are requested to be small rather than large for ease of overseas shipping
Hannah Hopes and Ting Ministries are teaming up for this project! Hannah is collecting the animals, making the tags, and shipping to our location here in Pennsylvania so that we can then get the special stuffed animals to orphans in Bulgaria and the Philippines! WE might even have the opportunity to share the animals with street children in the Philippines! This is exciting when you view the tags and the love that is put into the tags for each animal. Hannah shares that God is love on the tags. Hannah HOPES that each child that is touched by animal would come to know the LOVE OF JESUS. It is my prayer that each life touched by one of these animals is a life changed by the power of LOVE...by the power of God...by the Power of JESUS Christ and HIS REDEEMING LOVE!
Hannah is turning 13 years old! She is being a voice for the voiceless. I am humbled and blessed by this precious young girl and excited to watch what the LORD will do with this very special project and her young life!
I Timothy 4: 12 says "Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."

If you live closer to Kalamazoo, Michigan please call Hannah Hopes (Courtney Weal 269-271-1037)! Some of Hannah's favorite phrases on her flyer to raise animals for the orphans are below:
-What we can do with little bit of love and God’s help - We LOVE because God first loved us -Live with compassion -God is Love 1 John 4:8
-Have faith that moves mountains Hannah is one extraordinary child of God that is using her gifts and talents and compassion to give to others!I can not even begin to imagine what the LORD could for the orphans if we as adults took a simple plan and allowed the LORD to make it HIS! BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS...Hannah is....
Stay tuned for updates on the amount of animals that Hannah HOPES COLLECTS!
