Wish you all the best

Hey there,

Happy New Year everybody! It's a pleasure to have all you guys reading my blog. I'm going very very very soon. In about 2 and 1/2 weeks. I really can't wait to see the children. We went to St. Ignatius before Christmas and they presented us with $700!! And my school gave me $400 and a digital camera for the trip with a memory card that holds 1,742 pictures on it. I thank-you St. Ignatius and St. Bernard. You guys have been a big help. $700 could keep 5-7 families for when I leave so that they can survive on their own. $400 can do 2-4 families. I thank all of you out there for your support. Bye for now.

It's almost time!

Hey guys, there's only 3 weeks until I'm going. We will be starting to pack up and get ready. I really want to change what's happening there and I can't explain my emotions its just that the poverty there it's just so incredible. I just want to make Malawi a different country and just get to know the people. And be able to help them and buy them what they need. And just help all the orphaned children. I really can't wait.

And just today we got a $243.33 donation from the daycare at the college named Family and Children Centre!! And just think about a day care giving $243.00. LIke God is working something here. Thank-you so much daycare for your support. I had alot of fun meeting them today. Right now God has His eye on Malawi. Like Madonna, Unicef, me and others are helping Malawi. I thank you all for supporting me . Just remember that the money is going to a good cause. Bye for now.

Buttons and Blog

Hey Guys,

Just so you know it has been me writing these blogs sometimes my mom will type it and I'll say it because it goes alot faster. The only time my mom writes is if she writes from Sue. I hope that you know that it is true because it is.

And lately we have been making buttons, they will be sold at Maltese, Primary Photo, Shear Heaven, Home Hardware and at our church. The buttons are $2.00 each and they say my website on them. The net one.

I hope to make a big change in Africa. It's in exactly in 4 weeks . I just ask that you support me and my mission. Also, lately there was a girl that came to my mom's office, she said that I inspired her and when she gets through university she's going to go to Africa and teach and she's 18 year old and she said that she left a little donation for us and she gave us $1,000!!! So God is really working this out. Bye for now.

Purchase Program

Below you'll find our purchase program. We are having some problems with our web page so I hope the information is okay here.

Chicken - $ 4.00
Goat - $ 45.00
Cow - $ 350.00
Donkey - $ 350.00
Maize - $ 25.00 (50 Kg bag of their corn staple)

Treadle Pump - $ 100.00
Bike - $ 100.00
Ox Cart - $ 175.00

Here are some thoughts.......
Two donkeys and an Ox Cart will provide a business for an individual. A bike is used as a taxi service in rural villages providing a family with an income. A treadle pump will help irrigate a small vegetable plot to assist in growing food to feed a widow and her family.

Purchases can be made in the following ways:
1. Visit any Td bank and make a deposit into the Thunder Bay Christian Fellowship account number ending in 157. Branch 6053. (E-mail deposit info. to include your name and address)
2. Send cheque or money order payable to: Thunder Bay Christian Fellowship 515 N. Syndicate Ave. Thunder Bay, ON P7C 3X2

During the Christmas Season, if you wish to purchase an item on behalf of some-one else as a gift, we'll send you a beautiful Christmas card to give.

All donations over $10.00 will be issued a tax receipt at year end, if full name and address are provided.

Thank-you, Sue (Jaako's Mom)

Time is almost here!!


In 4 weeks it is time to go!! I really can't wait to see these children. Help those people who have Aids and HIV. I'm so excited!! I'm also sad how much we have compared to them. I want to be able to help every single person I see and meet by buying them the stuff that they need and just getting to know them. Bye for now.

Hey Guys,
Did you know that Malawi is the 2nd poorest country in Africa and 7th in the world? Did you know that in Sub-saharan Africa a child dies every 3 seconds? And Malawi is right in Sub-saharan Africa. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have HIV/Aids it's not very pleasant. Did you know that almost every child has lost one or both of there parents? They usually live with there grandparents if they have any. Not very many adults make it past the age of 37 or 38. And 43% of the children don't make it to the age of 5. That's why I really want to help these children. And I really want to help them with what they need. And just buy them what they want and just bless that country. They have such severe pain. I'm just so excited to go and help them. We are so lucky to live in Canada where there is medicine to help with all these diseases.
Bye for now.

Time is short

Thank-you for your continual support everybody. We've been having a couple school doing things. I'd like to thank St. Bernards and Holy Cross for hundreds of "Bags of Hope" they were great and a big thanks to the girls after school program at St. James who raised $172.00 by having a bake sale!! I got to meet the girls yesterday and we talked.

I'm really excited. I can't wait until I get to Africa to help these children. I might be a little bit nervous about the animals there. I really hope that there will be a change there when I get back. I really want to help these children. To them that will be their Christmas time because they don't get much there. I can't wait to see the smiles on the children. I want to bless these people. I just can't wait. Please I encourage you to do whatever you can do to help these kids.
