"Another day has passed while our hearts are growing closer, but our time under the African sun has started to come to an end.  Today we had the experience at both Ruby's and Timbutini to pass out a variety of different shirts for the kids.  I cannot even begin to explain the looks on their faces as we gave them a gift as simple as this.  While in Timbutini, some of the girls felt so guilty to take our gifts that they would try to hand them back to us.  The second we told them they were for them they jumped for joy and had smiles from cheek to cheek.  Each and every one of these beautiful children had a little thing called hope in their big brown eyes.  I know that these children are yearning for not only the touch of man, but for the love from the one true God.  Although we are tired and running low on energy from sleeping on rooftops and jumping rope with the kids, God still manages to provide that last extra boost to keep us going."

What you've just read is one of the blog entries from a group from Georgia who went on a mission trip to Swaziland.  Their church partners with Children's Hope Chest in working with orphans in special care points.  The picture above shows some of the kids who received a new dress or shirt from Dresses for Orphans during that trip.  Below you can see the leaders all organized to give out the dresses and shirts.

If you're planning on selling your current home or buying a new one or both, and don't yet have a real estate professional on your team, we can help!  

At no cost to the seller or buyer, there is a program which is designed to locate qualified real estate professionals all across the United States who will pay a referral fee to a new program called Helping Orphans Thru Real Estate.  Most of this fee will be donated to orphan care - in this case, to Dresses for Orphans.  

If you're interested in learning more about this unique program, just call Darlene at 480-807-2672 or email to and we'll explain the whole program to you.   Dennis Archer, the director of this program, says that real estate agents are more than happy to pay a referral fee in order to obtain a new client.  In fact, millions of dollars exchange hands in the U.S. each year by real estate professionals making referrals to one another.   

Just contact us and after we describe the program in detail, you can proceed in any direction you desire!  You'll find that this is an excellent way to find a great real estate agent who will be 'in your corner' and at the same time contribute to Dresses for Orphans without any money coming out of your pocket!
