 The changing sky never ceases to amaze me. 

Despite all the rain that fell and the gray days we had, I was  awestruck by
the beauty to be found in the sky this week. 


On the other side of the world and under the same sky lives a little girl named Fidelis Muthoni.
Carrying her is Joseph Wambau, the young man that is trying to help Fidelis and her mother get to Canada this month for much needed surgery. They need our support because the surgery in Canada is free but they do need to raise travel funds to get from Kenya to Canada and to have living expense money while they are in the country.

I would be grateful if you could spare a few minutes to do what you can to share the information about Baby Fidelis more widely with your own circle of contacts and friends.
You can find all the necessary information at this link
The more people who know of the baby's situation, the more people who will be reached that might help baby Fidelis.

If you have limited time but want to make a donation, you can do so through Pay Pal.

Here is a link to the Pay Pal button
Please mark any donations as "Purpose - Baby Fidelis" so the funds get to the right child.
The Hope Foundation which is based in Nairobi, tries to help many orphans and disabled children.
Identifying the funds for Fidelis makes sure that it is earmarked for her travel and not to the general needs.

Thank you so much for your help!

Good Morning Joyful -- First things first, I just clicked over to PayPal, using your link, and made another donation for Baby Fidelis. It is so easy and I encourage all of my blogging friends to help Fidelis. One look at the photo of baby should put all our problems into perspective. Thank you, Joyful, for your efforts here and for keeping us updated. Now, onto your sky photos ... You know I always enjoy your sky photos and this post is no exception. I found it interesting to note the whispy clouds in your first two photos ... I wondered if you might have taken that photo on the same day we had similar clouds down here ... I think it was Monday. Thank you for such an encouraging and kind comment on my post yesterday ... April Photos. Wishing you all the best! Take care Joyful!

Beautiful sky! I love that sort of clouds. Praying for that little child.

Joyful said...

Hello John, thank you for dropping by and for making another donation for Baby Fidelis. May God richly bless you and meet your every need and some wants :-) I just wanted to let you know that you are correct. I took the wispy cloud photos on Monday as most of the other days were too gray for such clouds. I hope your weather is still very nice. Ours is supposed to be nice for the weekend at least and so I hope to enjoy some sunshine before the hotter days arrive. Have a wonderful weekend!

Joyful said...

I'll do my best! Thank you for your prayers.
