Happy 5th birthday to Imara International!

Imara International 5th Birthday Cake

It is hard to believe that we opened the doors of the Imara home five years ago. We plan to make 2017 a year of celebration. Celebrating girls who are excelling in school, children who are healthy and love to laugh, a staff that is growing, amazing volunteers and supporters, and a God who is faithful and has carried us through! Wow!

Goodbyes are always hard. We left our wintry home in Minnesota fourteen days ago. Although we feel some fatigue and are missing our loved ones, bidding farewell to our Imara family has come so quickly.
