Hello everyone! We hope you are all enjoying the beginning of spring!  We’ve been enjoying a lovely few days in the North of Germany at the north sea with Uli’s family. We had a wonderful easter and celebrated Uli’s mother’s 60th birthday! Even got to take our nephew Janosch to the sea for the first time! 

 We want to give you all a short update on

THE MANNCHEN PLANS. 

CLOSING OUR LAST PROJECT...

As you all know we went to Ethiopia to close down our 5 year Koshe project in February. Since then we have been working on sending out thank you cards to hundreds of people around the world who have been part of supporting, praying, practically serving and championing this project! Was quite inspiring to see how many people really carried this project!  We also have been working on a final farewell video, which we have for you today! Thank you to every single one of you who helped impacting these girls lives. For supporting us all these years, or on one time trips, so that we could support these girls. It’s been a pleasure working with you! 

... AND STARTING A NEW PROJECT

Our next project we are swiftly and passionately moving onto is “The Pillalu House” in India.

Our friend Raj started a small orphanage in Vijayawada, India and has asked us, Pick a Pocket to partner with him in seeing it reach it’s full potential. “The Pillalu House”, which we named to stand for “The Lion Cub House” currently has 23 children. The majority of the children have become orphaned do to their parents fatal farming accident. Raj has done an incredible job at finding astray relatives in the area, or locals, that look after individual children so that they all have a home to come to every night. During the day he helps supporting them by sending them to school, providing 3 meals a day, play time at the orphanage and prayer/ bible studies. It is one of the healthiest orphanages we’ve ever seen, and that is why we're so excited to partner with him. CAN'T WAIT! 

BUT WAIT, WHAT ARE YOU DOING RIGHT NOW?! 

We are heading out to MERICA WEDNESDAY! Wow, that snuck up on us quickly! We have been asked to speak in the Florida, Marriage of the Arts DTS again. We are pretty honored to be asked back for the second year in a row! We will be speaking on identity, which will lead into arts and missions! Following our week in Florida we will head to Atlanta to finish the rest of the Liz and the Lions album! Ruth and Thomas are also going to be coming over to record their parts for the album! After 4 months of fundraising we’ve only been able to raise enough for 2 of our 4 flights.  But we decided in faith to pack our suitcases trusting He will provide! Please keep us in your prayers as we are still needing another two flights! 

Alright folks! THAT'S ALL! Shoot us some love, we like hearing from you all!
