Home at last !!

Well my daughter is coming home today for good from the missionary field with her hubby Evan and three kids. I couldn't be more excited then I am today. I have been to the grocery store three times I hope I have everything now.. SO unlike me to go so many times.
I couldn't be more proud of them for giving up all their worldly comforts here in the USA to care for orphan children in Jos Nigeria. They haven't been gone all to long but the impact and restructuring of the school left lasting impact.
With Pambra's picking up I really need my right hand girl here too :)

Too much excitement to contain my self !!

I am soo very excited that my daughter Veronica is coming home with her family from their mission trip to Jos, Nigeria Africa for good.. I have had to contain this news for several days.. I am not good at keeping exciting news inside me..

They have three boys who have all grown so much. The youngest left as a baby barely talking, he digs in everything and talks up a storm now. We have so much preparation going on round our house for them to stay with us until they get on their feet.

As a mom I have not missed a single day thinking about my daughter and her family being in such a dangerous place. Jos Nigeria is the most dangerous place in Nigeria to be. They have heard the terrorist bombings and seen the aftermath of such atrocity's. They did a lot of work their at the orphanage. Veronica worked as the schools headmistress also known as the Principle.. and taught classes. Evan her husband worked with the boys teaching them doing security work with the guards, and led some bible classes.

They have taken steps in their lives to reach out and help those who needed it. Not many people would give up all the comforts of home to travel around the world and know the danger they were in before hand and still go anyways. They will enjoy the freedom that the USA has to offer once again. A simple task of grocery shopping or going to your child's school with out an escort for your safety. Among many other things they have learned. I would love to have them write a book about their experiences...

Blessed they are coming home.

March is for FUN

Already excited by this months work. Gained a couple new accounts, as well as going to large trade show next week. Last time I went to this same trade show we did so well 27 new accounts in 6 hours. Can't wait to see what this show brings. Marketing is one of the hardest things to do. At times it comes very easy and everything falls in place. Other times it can be stressful and challenging. One of the biggest challenges has been materials for really large accounts, I mean the BIG boy kind of accounts. Pambra's has a place in a new contest where they will even help make the large orders if we make it thru.

I have worked on Pambra's for 22 years now. We are entered into a contest with Wal Mart. It is called "get it on the shelf" there are over 4,000 entries. I don't know if we would make it to the top ten, I am not as aggressive as some others might be, that and I am extremely busy. Perhaps some friends have my back, you never know. I know I am extremely blessed no matter what.

Blessing from all over

Well We gained two new babies in one week. My daughter Jeanette had a baby boy on Monday. He is so adorable with her red hair and olive skin. This makes eight grandkids for us. My niece I raised after my sister died of breast cancer had her baby the very next day. Kandy had baby Zoey, she is so precious. Two babies in two days it is almost like having my twins.. 18 years ago..

We have gained another new catalog for the second year in a row. I love it because this one came to us as well. We are only growing more and more.. Looking forward to some traveling in the near future. This trip promises to be very good for Pambra's.. well tell you more an 45 days or so.. come back again soon. HUGS

Busy Bee's

We are really Busy Bee's, much earlier this year then we were last year. Looking forward to a wonderful trade show in March and a little family time as well. The Tummy liners have just finished their first full year on the market and what an impact they have made. Seems they are equally liked as much as our Original Bra liner style. Marketing is my favorite part, but still being a small company I do a little of everything still. Very Thankful for all the people who help get Pambra's on the market. All geared up for another great year. Tax man was wearing a smile when I seen him earlier..
