One of the main ideas behind the design for these t-shirts originate with something Seth started when he was probably about three.

When he would see the moon that looked like a "smile" he would tell me "Mami, the moon is for you." I would just say "Oh, thank you Seth."

Well, after a while we all started stuff like that. The other day we were walking at Hidden Acres during sunset and the sky had streaks of pink and I told Selah, "Look Selah, the pink in the sky is for you. God loves you so much that he put some of your favorite color up in the sky."

The truth is that everyday God shows us glimpses of His love through nature, people, and events. I think one very cool thing about the continent of Africa is its very unique animals. People go on Safari's just to get glimpses of these animals in their natural habitat.

This is why for the first design I created I wanted to use a picture of a close up of a zebra that I took at the State Fair in the Petting Zoo. I think that those very cool stripes tell us about God's beauty and how He shows His mastery in the details of this world.

For Africa with Love.

God has written love notes for us everywhere, and most clearly in the Bible. In the Bible is where we remember that God's most precious love note was sending His Son, "The Word become flesh" to take away the sins of the world.

I pray for the people of Africa that they may know that Christ came "for Africa with Love"
