Here's the African Childrens art we will be actioning

off! Bids will be starting at $50.dollars. Remember too these are for the children's housing. It takes $65000 to build a house for up to no more than 12 children and one house mom. All people need a home to grow up healthy and strong. Kampala Christian Centre is a model project for all the children of Africa. A place where they feed, teach, house, grow leaders and most of all teach the love of the Lord!  These children are not just being fed food, but spiritual food and mental ability,so that many will grow up to become doctors, teachers, pilots, musicians, farmers, IT people, and much more. With the money we are able to raise through this art more opportunity will be gained. One hundred percent will go straight to the children of Uganda..
  Next week the children are coming through NH again on their way to RI from Vermont. That's when I will be meeting with them so that I can take individual photos of each child and his/her art work. That is when they will also be titling their paintings.
  I did the over paintings so I signed my names on the fronts in smallish lettering and signed my name as Auntie Sanna, since the children show respect by calling people who are older auntie or uncle if we are a part of the family in faith.Which I am happy to say I am . I love being their auntie! I want to go to Africa and teach them art too, sure hope it's in God's plans for me.
  I have wanted to be a missionary to Africa since I was a small child myself. I would love to help them found an art program.We all know how art heals and that the world in every culture has great artists waiting for opportunity to create!
  I thoroughly enjoyed the short time I had with these blessed children and I miss them so much as odd as that seems. I think of them all the time and I want to hug them and wrap them in my arms and protect them just like my own kids. Maybe because they have no parents, and maybe because they are just so sweet and precious. They all work so hard to help the other still needy small children and babies of Africa who are hungry and need  not only food and clothing, but love and support. I watched them do those shows(where thy sing and dance and give testimony) and I just thought they are saints. Very very young saints, selflessly giving for others who have less. How could anyone not love these precious children?
  Please stay tuned for more information on the auctioning as I find out who your checks will be written too, as they will be tax deductible.Collection will be to me but they will be written to the org in charge of monies going to Kampala Christian Centre and Destiny Africa.
  Until then here are a few peeks at the children's art work!!!!!
This is my title may not be what the child chooses

This child wanted me to draw her, she did the background and lovely textures!

This says: "I smile because I love di Lord" It's one song the children sing and "di"  means the, I love African accents! I love all accents!!!

The over letters will not be in the actual art, this is simply a protective measure.

The Crested Crane is Uganda's national bird

The children have one dog at their community at home, a big dog they named Chiwawa! LOL!

This young man made a cross and wanted a basketball net hanging off it as their painting were about what brings them joy! So I told him to add a lot of balls. He said he like foot ball best and proceeded to tell me that really means soccer!

David wanted a lion! I love his polka dotted nose!

This girl was a challenge as it was already so beautiful I simply added designs!

Already being requested by two women! So the bid might go high on this one?!!

To me this is so simple and beautiful, I hardly had to do a thing to it,but it will make a great cover for
the box the cards go in and a wonderful print for those who love the show!
This sweet girl wanted a third dog but I suggested we do a monkey since no one else had yet and she agreed, the monkey made her laugh! I loved her butterfly so worked the tail around that!

This piece was created but the leader of music! He had a real artists touch. Great job Alex!!!!

Dorothy who is there matriarch was so sweet and she participated and did a beautiful  painting too!!~Thank you Dorothy it came out beautifully!!!

More cranes and I love how there are three but my favorite is the one the child painted!

This one was by Mary Pheona! She is so happy and she has many smart ideas too!

Added pink to this piece as the girl strike me as a fashionable girl who would love pink!

I loved this tree, the child said it was a magic tree but I think it's the tree of life so I added eleven birds to the one he had soaring up into the tree!!!

Here you see both Uganda, and Africa's shapes, and a message about God's undying love to us.
