Friends!  I'm beside myself with joy.  I don't even really have good news, I'm just feeling an overall sense of calm and knowing that God is in control.  He is at work and I'm anticipating His glory like never before!

Here is what I do know!  BFGO is going to increase and improve communication with our community of donors, prayer warriors and friends.  Be on the lookout for a more efficient and informative blog.  Very soon we will implement regular updates to include:

  • BFGO financial statements
  • Child spotlights - yes, we'll be doing feature stories on the orphans
  • adoption stories
  • Down syndrome adoption stories
  • Lambshops - item of the week  (
  • EXACTLY how monthly donations are spent
  • stories of faith and inspiration
We are going to establish a Facebook group that will be completely private.  This group will be only for donors and prayer warriors.  It will be a place for us to share sensitive information that we cannot post on the blog or blast in email newsletters because we'll have to know exactly who our audience is.  Please email me at melissa@beautifulfeetgo(dot)org if you want to be invited into that group.  You'll need to provide me with your facebook information as well!

We are partnering with some bloggers to do some fantastic giveaways including jasper and t-shirts!  You'll find out about those here at this blog, so I'm requesting that you sign up for the automatic email feed.

And finally, my most exciting announcement...  in August when I return to Zim I'll be organizing a sponsorship program.  There will be at least 3 ways to get involved.  We will have programs for (1) school fees (2) Staff sponsorship (zim staff)  (3) Project sponsorship.  **We will begin offering a correspondence program between the children, staff and donors.  I could not be more excited about this!  You'll get to bond through correspondence with a Zim orphan or caretaker.  

PRAY WITH US AND FOR US.  GOD IS MOVING MIGHTILY.  WE KNOW IT AND WE FEEL IT.  May God bless each of you beyond your wildest imaginations!

  2. Hey Melissa. I just wanted to let you know I am so excited about all the new developments with BFGO, and I am definitely praying about getting more involved and exactly what that will look like. You know my heart is so tender for Zimbabwe, yet fear/caution has been holding me back a bit. My heart is still left feeling very vulnerable and exposed and a little wounded from, well, you know :) But maybe thats exactly how God wants it right now?

  3. Exciting things are happening! Looking forward to all the God is going to do...
