Visiting the Children and Save the Date

This past month, Jason and four others, Bret Royal, Troy Jones, John Kenneth Jones and Talton Russell made the trip to Africa to see the children we have sponsored. It was an amazing trip! While there, these men accomplished so much. Here is a list of some of the things they were able to do:
Deliver care packages to each child from their sponsorer
Play games with the children
Hand out letters written to the children from their sponsorer and assist them in writing letters back
Visit the Murole school (where the children of Rubanda Care Point attend) and interact with teachers and students
Meet with care takers regarding a micro-finance fund already in place, donate to this program, commit to further partnership and support
Attend and participate in a soccer tournament at the soccer field partially financed by Superhero funds
Provide food for a community meal feeding over 100 community members
Visit the home of one of the children attending the care point

As you can see, so much was accomplished on this trip. The most important though were the relationships that were formed. The men were able to interact with the children, teachers, care takers and leaders of the village, care point and school. They came home with an even stronger desire to help these children thrive and succeed. Over the next several weeks, we will be working with HopeChest to determine the next step to take in helping the children of Rubanda Care Point. So, we are asking you to SAVE THE DATE for the next Superhero Ball on February 23, 2013 from 4:00-8:00 pm at the La Vernia Chamber of Commerce Hall. Please join us in raising money to support these children. They still have so many needs that we can provide for!
