hey I am anutrtion educator and i am so happy to hear about all the great changes you all are trying to make.  Just a comment about the juicer, the USDA states children should not s=consume more than 6 ounces of juice per day and adults no more than 12 ounces, this is because while you are getting lots of nutrients you are also getting lots of sugar and for children especilly this can mean they will eat less of other foods their growing bodies need.  Also we need the fiber in the fruit and vegetables and juice does not provide that.  So as always God states moderation in all things for good health!!  God Bless you both and keep on making those great changes/.

Have faith and stick with the Zumba classes Kelli! I have not been able to fit a class in to my schedule yet, but my husband has a PS3 gaming system, and he was kind enough to buy me the Zumba fitness game! I am hooked and "play" the game frequently. It is a great workout; I love to dance, so why not do that to get my body moving and into shape!?

I heard you talk about how you were going to Afghanistan and you need hats/blankets and that the hats have to be homemade.  Well, I kept the hats that were put on my kids when they were at the hospital.  My kids are 18, 16, 14.  Why should I keep them? What really will happen to them?  I think that sharing them this way is better than leaving them in a box somewhere.  So, How can I share them with you?

I, too, would love to contribute.  I've been knitting since the early 80's, first for my children and now for my grandchildren.  I currently have four baby blankets that I would love to send you.  It would be such an HONOR to know that an Afghan baby was being warmed by the blanket I made with loving hands.  Tell me how/when to get them to you.  All I ask is a picture in return.

Scott -- great job on the baby hat!  Keep it up.  You'll find that knitting get easier and easier with practice, and someday you'll be able to do it without (hardly) even looking.  It's my favorite way to spend a relaxing evening.

I listen to you guys on my way to and from work every day -- you are such a blessing in my life!

I too would love to make hats and blankets for your trip.  Do you have specific patterns or whatever we make?  Where do we send them and when do you need them?  I crochet so my hats and blankets would be crocheted.

I thank God for a place for Christians to celebrate their faith through all of you.

I sponsor a knitting club at the middle school I teach at in North Carolina, and we have been looking for a project.  This would be perfect!  We would love to make baby hats for your trip.  Please email me with the necessary information.  My students will be so excited to have a foreign project, and at the same time we can learn about Afghanistan and the needs of the people there.  Can we use the round knitting looms?  Thanks for this opportunity to serve the Lord and our students at the same time.

This is a great idea!  I wonder if you woud be interested in using yarn or hat kits from kidknits.org?  The yarn is handmade by widows in Rwanda, and provides them with sustainable jobs.  Using this yarn would extend the benefit of your wonderful project upstream as well as to the recipients of your hats!

My church has a yarn ministry.  Most of our ladies crochet but I would love to get them involved in this, if it would be possible.  Are crocheted items acceptable?  If so, when and where do they need to be sent?
