Getting new clothes calls for some serious jumping and clowning around.

These kids are from Haven of Hope Orphanage in the Philippines on the island of Mindanao.  The orphanage was started in 2006 as a joint effort between Filipino Americans and local stewards of Sowers International - Philippines.  The children have come from Muslim and tribal villages with just the clothes on their backs.  The heart of Haven of Hope is clear in their byline - Every Child Deserves a Home to Call Their Own.

Of course, the girls did their share of having fun in their new dresses as well!

The smiles on their faces pretty much says it all!

This is an email I received from Peter Cowles who directed the trip that delivered the outfits:  

"We had a super time today when we traveled to one of our sites where we work with a group of very poor pastors who have a number of  members in their congregation with disabilities.  We gave out some food and the shirts and dresses from your group.  They were all so happy.  Several cried at getting the dresses and shirts.


Have you ever wondered what happens when the volunteers meet on Wednesday mornings to sew?
