The current need is to find sponsors for all 168 children at the carepoint. Wendy and I are committed to help find these generous & loving people who will make a difference in the life of a child or children half way around the world. Sponsorship will enrich the childs life by meeting their; physical, emotional, & spiritual needs. Please prayerfully consider partnering with us by sponsoring a child today! The cost of sponsorship is $34 / mo, but the benefits to the child and your family will far outweigh this small price.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more information. The website for Starved 4 Hope is http://starved4hope.org/ . All funds are funneled through Hope Chest and their website is http://www.hopechest.org/ .
We are so excited to see the Lord work through this new opportunity!
Derek & Wendy Walz
Also, the video off to the side is actually pictures of some of the children at the Tullo school taken from the founders of Starved 4 Hope back in September.

Some of these pictures are at my mom's house and my Aunt's house. We had my mom's Christmas and my Grandma's Christmas the weekend before Christmas so I just grouped them together.

Below is a picture with each of the kids on Santa's lap. This was the year that each child sat on Santa's lap with out crying. Last year, Ethan wouldn't even get close without crying. This year he crawled right up on Santa's lap and told him he wanted "a tractor", Santa said, "What color?" Ethan said, " uh, green, no, no red!" Ash asked for a reindeer and a monster truck, Garrett a DS and Mekie a doll house. Oh, I forgot to tell you that Ash was so excited to sit on Santa's lap that the line was starting to form and he ran right to the front of the line to sit on his lap. I felt bad because my child cut in line but he was on Santa' s lap before I could tell him to stop.

And this was the day after Thanksgiving. I had been up since 2:45 in the morning because I was on of those crazy shoppers out at 3 a.m. But I had promised to get the tree up and decorated. So after we finished decorating the tree, I pulled out santa hats and the kids went crazy! We have had so much fun this holiday season doing all our traditions with Ash and Mekie. They are such a blessing!
Well I hope to get more pictures up of the kid's meeting Santa in the next few days so stay tuned!!!

I love Ms. Mekie's smile and her custom Hair bows that I love making for her!!!
This was Thanksgiving morning. My grandparents came out, my dad and his wife and my brother. This is my grandma and I finishing up the cooking. We had all the traditional foods and the kid's had a blast playing with Uncle Tyler and their grandparents! My mom then came later that day and we spent the night in the dark! Our power went out around 7:30 and didn't come back on until the middle of the night. Then my mom and I woke up at and headed out of the house at 3am for Black Friday shopping. My favorite!!! We had a great time and filled the car with our bargins!
