I have been informed by two different people (seriously) that this is the sound a goat makes: “Maaaa–aaaaaa-aaaaaaaaa”.  So for all you parents who are teaching your children animal noises, you can add this to your repertoire 🙂

Below is an e-mail received from a goat donor.  He’s a pastor in a small, rural community.  This year he received what he described as the “best birthday present ever.”

I am extremely pleased to share with you some good news.  When I was asked by my wife what I wanted for my birthday, I told her I would really like to buy a goat or two for our sponsored child.  Well, little did I know that she was working behind the scenes sharing my desire with our church family as well.

Today after church we had a potluck/BBQ with the church family and they presented me with a very nice cake and a card. When I opened the card there was an envelope inside that said, ” Pastor, here is some money to help you with your goat fund.”  When I was finished crying, I opened it and counted what was there, and I am happy to say that by adding it to the “goat and a half” I already had saved, the Lord has blessed us with the ability to purchase 5 goats.

All I can say is that this is the best birthday present I ever received! Praise the Lord!!!

Another goat donor wrote the following to her friends on her facebook page:

I’m buying myself a goat for my birthday and am letting a little girl in Uganda take care of it.  It’s not good that a goat should be alone.  If anyone wants to buy me a birthday present, my goat needs a friend, they like to travel two-by-two 🙂   One goat costs $75.  It will help a child in an orphanage in Uganda.

To date, two dozen goats have been donated to sponsored children!  Click here to read more about giving a goat to a child.
