My home made birthday cake from Lenny and kids.

Thank you to all my friends, family members and supporters who made my birthday so wonderful. I spent my birthday in Kano, Nigeria with C.A.R.E. Africa, SIM, Lenny and kids. From coffee lattes and cake with my friend Jocelyn, to shopping for fabric in the local market, a package from the USA with a awesome t-shirt and a surprise homemade cake from Lenny after a 5 hour drive back to Jos from Kano….it was a great birthday.

Icing on the cake was that my birthday wish of getting a playground for my kids in Egbe was granted. Thanks to everyone $2,104 came in, of the $2,400 that I had asked for. I am so excited about this and cannot wait to send you all pictures of the kids playing on the new equipment. I will head to Egbe in a few weeks to start working on this along with many other items. Please pray for safe travels along with wisdom and discernment from God as C.A.R.E. Africa continues to grow.

    Happy Birthday, Patrice! You had a wonderful celebration with family in Kano. So glad that enough money was raised for playground equipment for your school. I continue to sub in schools here in Washington. The kids are so privileged here. How I miss Nigeria! You are a wonderful writer who keeps praying friends in touch with what’s going on in the mission field. (Did you know that Hudson Taylor was also an excellent writer of prayer letters?) Keep them coming…and the prayers will continue to go up! Love from, Sylvia Eikenberry

    Happy birthday Patrice. I know it’s late there, but we want you to sleep well, so we will pick up the balance of what you need. Love you!
