Children of Grace ~ Life with Lily

For years I have sat through missionary slides where they showed their work in orphanages. Seeing the happy faces of those children so enthused about what ever gift they had received always touched my heart.  I hoped to someday help more directly.
 
Yesterday I received an email with the following picture.
 
 
Children of Grace in Uganda received copies of Life with Lily from someone.
 
To know that something I worked on is now being read and enjoyed by these children is a highlight in my writing journey.

Sweet story! Thanks for sharing. I know those dear children will enjoy your books. I have both Lily books and my students absolutely love Lily and can't seem to get enough of her.

What a joy for you! My dream has always been to travel to an orphanage and serve. That will probably never happen but we support children though World Vision. To see the smiles on those faces and know that it's because of your book...what an absolute joy to your heart.
Blessings,
Betsy

I know I really enjoyed your story - I am sure they will as well. I think it is awesome that not only did someone get them the books - that someone took the time to let you know. What an awesome thing! Lisa :O)
