My latest African child painting is ready for adoption. I am hoping to get 700.00 dollars for her so her village can purchase an amplifier and start to use the organ for worshipping God in church!

Original photo of Praise sent to me by her father Pastor Ssenono.
 This little girl is named Praise! She is the daughter of a Pastor in Uganda who takes care of many orphans in his village as well as his own family and he is the pastor of the church there. Recently the church was given an organ but in order for it to play they need an amplifier. Hoping through this painting we can raise enough money so that they can purchase the amplifier.
God has whispered that since adoption all the needy children of the world is a mere dream, instead as artist I will paint them one at a time as He so inspires me. Whenever able to auction off a painting of one of these precious children then the village, clan, tribe, family, orphanage or Center with which they live at will benefit from the proceeds 100%!
Praise is sister to Promise, Patients and Favor. Favor is the brother in the family. However they have many more children they house and feed as Uganda is the youngest nation in populace in our world. Yet the mortality rate is fairly young, due to war, diseases- like malaria and AIDS, and the lack of certain medical care. Water that is not always clean and hunger makes the children especially vulnerable. With certain lacking amounts of protein at young ages one is weakened in bone and brain growth, even more so without adults to care for them these children would certainly perish. The pastor here is one of my heroes as he not only cares for his own biological family but also many children who did not have their origins from him or his family while entering this world. Yet both he and his wife love all the children like their very own! I have met him in Uganda and his heart is of pure gold.
They have many needs but the organ would help lift their spirits during worship through song and many would come to hear it and the word of God. I would love to reach $700.00 dollars for this work if anyone is willing to bid that please do so! The name of the face book auction site is "AN ALTRUISTIC ART AUCTION FOR AFRICA" it is public so anyone can join!

We will also be having one two and three man art shows along with themed individual pieces for auction. I am offering a 40/60% cut to those artists who do the one piece themed shows and A 60/40% for the artists who do more intensive showings of their own works! Hoping to spread hope throughout the globe through this process! Thanks Sanna.

Beautiful "Praise" in my basically finished painting>
