Dear Partners, Gifts From Angels I’ve heard many times, “You may be the only Jesus they will ever see”, but I never expected anyone to literally think I was God in the flesh. Five years ago while distributing coats and boots for the orphans in Komarivka, Ukraine, Zhenya (Eugene) walked over to me, squeezed me tightly and said “Ты Бог” . . . “You are God”. I was humbled and broken-hearted to think that my sorry model was the best this child had ever experienced, but astounded that such a simple touch of compassion could demonstrate the love of Christ. I wanted these children to see Christ in me and they were beginning to understand His hope and grace. Of course, I explained to Zhenya that I was a far cry from being God and 2 weeks ago, when this photo was taken, he jokingly, but lovingly greeted me with “Shawn, you are God”. I can’t do much, but for most people, it doesn’t require extravagant kindness to demonstrate the mercy, compassion and grace of our Father. This world is a cold, hard place and little, unconditional things done for others goes a long way. You’ll notice the stickers on my jacket . . . Gifts from Angels! Smile House Construction Continues I just returned from one of the most productive construction trips ever. Our team was able to accomplish more than I ever could have anticipated. We were able to pump (Huge Thank You to Carroll Fulmer Logistics!) more than 7000 square feet of concrete, including the furnace building and main entry stairs. We located a Bobcat/skidsteer tractor and graded the entire property and laid more than half of the block for the furnace building. Our next trip is scheduled for March 24 - April 2, 2011. If you have drywall, tile, plumbing, electrical or other skills . . . including “none”, contact Shawn ASAP for trip details and application. Continued on page 2
