Noah's Memorial Birthday Party
Pancake & Waffle Breakfast

July 22,2013

Dear Friends of Noah’s Outreach,

With some regret, after five successful events, we have decided to cancel this year’s Noah’s Outreach Pancake Breakfast.  We appreciate those who have helped us over these past five years.  A lot of time and effort has gone into each event.  If you choose to, we would ask you to donate $6.00 this year for Noah’s sixth birthday. 

We have had faithful partners and support since the beginning.  But we also continue to have internal and external competition for each donation.  Events on the same day at the same time have occurred.  The economy forces everyone to choose how to use their money more wisely.  Food and supply costs continue to rise.  Some businesses have supported us faithfully.  Many have closed or are unable to continue their support.  Even in this tough environment, we still see Noah’s Outreach has its place. 

Noah’s Outreach moves forward with renewed focus.  From the smallest simple beginnings in August 2007 holding Noah in a donated blanket and seeking a Bible to find scripture for his Memorial Service, we have been enabled to give hundreds of Bibles and hand-made blankets away in his memory.  We still feel his loss and remember like it was just yesterday.  We will continue to give away Bibles and blankets as long as the Lord provides the resources.  The first weekend in August will be cut, snip and sew days to make new blankets to celebrate his birthday.

It is said time heals all wounds.  We believe God helps us heal as time passes.  When we first lost Noah, our entire focus was on that particular occurrence.  Six years later, God has put two little girls in our lives which occupy a great deal of time and effort and love.  Remembering Noah is no less important, but looking after Hope and Hannah puts the memorial in different focus and priority.

The fundraising continues, even without the breakfast.  Please consider donating $6.00 for his 6th birthday or you can choose to send whatever you feel led or drop any donation in the offering plate.  Thank you for your thoughts and we covet your prayers as we continue to work through Noah’s Outreach at BBC to reach out to our community.

In Christ’s Love,
Phillip and Karen Andes
