Here is the newest "Cover"

Cover Girl and Boy !!
There is a wedding in the near future! Soon ! Soon ! We are using this "cover" on the package of welcome to Whidbey, stuff we give out to the "out of towners".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.

Isaiah 61:3b

Despite even the most grim of situations, there is always at least a thread of hope. God longs to adore us and shower us with love, hope and joy. If you're seeing ashes when you look at your situation be reminded that He intends to transform them into beauty. If your spirit is faint, even to the point of mourning, expect Him to evoke gladness and praise. He is faithful - hang onto that promise.

Displaced Orphans International

Displaced Orphans International is a registered
501c(3) non-profit foundation started by a
small group of Christians in Washington State
who are intimately familiar with the critical
problems facing displaced orphans on the
borders of Thailand. DOI was formed to
provide hope to those children who currently
have none.
The board members of DOI are all employed
individuals who have been led by personal
beliefs to assist the forgotten children in this
area of the world. These children are not
recognized by any national organization as
refugees and hence receive little or no aid.
DOI pledges that 100% of all donations will
go directly to the support of the children and
that all overhead expenses such as fundraising
activities, will be borne by the board members
Strict accounting practices are followed and
annual audit reports are filed with the IRS as
required. These reports will be disclosed to any
sponsor upon request to DOI. If interested,
DOI can make arrangements for the sponsor to
visit the orphanages in Thailand so you can see
the results of our work first hand.
