Message from Sue and Frank

Dear Family and Friends,

Our year of fundraising is coming to an end, culminating in our African Arts and Crafts sale this coming weekend (see details below). Do venture out and have a look around for that special gift. We have gifts for those who have everything; like cards that say a goat has been purchased on their behalf, or a pig, chicken, etc.

We have lovely handcrafted cards and wire ornaments made by Zimbabwe children.
We have beautiful colourful Batik tablecloths and table mats, wood carvings, and lots of paintings, the proceeds of which help supply our artists in Zimbabwe with canvas and paints.

If you're not in a shopping mood, feel free to come simply for a visit and a chat, and perhaps enjoy a cup of delicious cup of pumpkin soup or one of Sue's chicken pies for $2 each, and the proceeds will go to the kids.

If you would like to support a particular component of our ministry, please let us know and we will make sure your donations go exactly where you want them to. Here are the 5 components of Health that support each community we work in with.

1) Water Well: $2000 (many people donating $50) will support a community with a well.
2) Education: $20 per month will support a child going to school
3) Adult Education: $100 (4 people donating $25) will support a man or woman attending a woodwork or sewing course.
4) Help build a church
5) Help build a clinic

Your donations will help revive a village.

To make a donation, please send cheque to:
EFCCM
Box 850, Langley Stn LCD1
Langley, BC. V3A 8S6
Canada
Please make sure your cheque or Credit card donation states
EFCCM account 2-3257

Frank and I have had some medical challenges this year, but we are still planning a trip to Zimbabwe next year, most probably in mid April. Our goal is to build a school and add to the Rasper Project we started this year. We will then meet the medical team arriving in June and staying well into July.

Again, thank you for your support both in prayer and financially. Thank you for your generosity. So much has been accomplished through your support.

Sincerely,
Sue and Frank Janetti

😊

African Art Sale

Saturday and Sunday Nov. 2nd and 3rd
8:30 AM to 4 PM
Ocean Park Hall - 1577-128 Street, South Surrey

Save your Christmas shopping until you see all our goods!!!


We will be featuring unique paintings, soap stone crafts, hand painted Batik tablecloths, hand crafted bowls and spoons, baskets, beaded ornaments, beaded Christmas ornaments, hand crafted cards, and so much more. Paintings are priced to sell, well under their value in order to support Zimbabwe artists so that they can continue to paint. We have a selection of well known artists who have appeared in the Zimbabwe Art Magazine.

Chutney and Apple Butter with recipes will be available again this year. They make great hostess gifts. Home made cakes and cookies will also be available for purchase.
Join us for a cup of coffee and some delicious Pumpkin soup, as well as homemade Chicken Pie and gravy and learn about what we do.

Get your Christmas shopping started early with these unique gift ideas and stocking stuffers, and make a difference in the world by supporting our worthy cause! 100% of the funds raised will go to supporting widows and orphans in Zimbabwe through the Zimbabwe Gecko Society.

We look forward to seeing you there!
