Recently I took my two-year-old grandson, Hudson, to get a haircut. The hairdresser asked him if he wanted to sit in a fire engine or a New York Taxi for the haircut. He chose the Taxi. With his head perfectly still while the scissors clipped away, we had the following conversation: “Nannie, when we get through with my hair cut, can we go to the candy store?” Ordinarily I would have told him that as soon as he popped out of that chair, we would head to the candy store, but I couldn’t today, because his mom...

When I learned that many of the Sahrawi children who return from the refugee camps do not go to school, I asked, “Why?” I learned that the main reason is because their families do not have the money to purchase the school supplies and the workbooks that the child needs to enroll in school. One of the TCI goals is to purchase 100 backpacks for Sahrawi children by August 2013. This is the time they enroll in school for the 2013-2014 school year.

Posted by on Mar 10, 2013 in Children | Comments Off on A DeJa vu Moment

In February 2013, I had a déjá vu moment. It was while visiting an after school Bible Club. My friend Sherrill Cressman (and TCI Board Member) teaches at McClure Elementary. Sherrill and fellow teacher, Chloe Brown, started an after school Bible club, which has over 50 children in it – an outstanding accomplishment. Sherrill asked if I would come and teach the children in their Bible Club to do balloon tying. Tying balloons was one of the outreach tools I taught my Junior High Bible class (many years ago)....
