Love One BY One Ministries posted the following message in their April newsletter along with these two photos. “The little boy in the photo came to our medical clinic in Uganda adoring and playing with his beloved car from the YEAR before. Loving One by One has received numerous cars for past mission trips, and we are super excited and blessed to be hand-carrying 2,000 of these precious cars this summer.” Thank you to all our Smilemakers for making a difference in these children’s lives. Your work is making a big difference in many children’s lives.

Darren Martin with Chapter Financial Resources in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, holds a car building event monthly for their financial clients who bring their children and grandchildren along to participle. It is held at their 10,000 square foot retro style Memory Lane event center. They anticipate 50 volunteers monthly. At the last event they built 1,000 cars in just 75 minutes. Yes, you read that right! THANK YOU to Darren for hosting the event, and Frank and Jeri Stand for supplying the car parts to assemble.

Thank you for all the toys you sent to SALUD PARTNERS for our mission trip to Cuchiverachi, Mexico. The kids (and even the adults) were thrilled. We want you to know how much you blessed these children who have so little. God is good, Richard Stam



Suitcases full of wooden cars were recently delivered to the children at Joy Christian School in Rwanda. This is the only “non-self-made” toy they will ever own. It is fun to see the smiles as they learned someone cares enough about them to donate a simple wooden car. Thank you to all Smilemakers.
