OCTOBER 19, 2010:
Dear Friends of Kay…
On Tuesday, November 2, 2010 at 2:00 p.m., Kay Oursler will speak about the Sunrise Children’s Home in the village of Uhekule, Tanzania. You are invited to hear this story of a woman, who after rearing 3 children and having careers in the medical and business world, joined the Peace Corps at age 64 and served two and one half years from 2005 to 2007. In the fall of 2008, as a private citizen, she returned to the African village she had served. Kay has worked with the villagers to build an orphanage for the many HIV/AIDS orphans in the village. The Sunrise Children’s Home was dedicated in June 2010. This is a story of how one person’s vision and positive energy is making a significant difference in the lives of the villagers in Uhekule, and also in the lives of people in our country who have had the opportunity to help make it happen. Please come and bring a friend. The meeting will be in the Annex of St. Paul United Methodist Church, 2223 Durwood Road, Little Rock, Arkansas 72207 and is open to all.
Directions to St. Paul United Methodist Church , 2223 Durwood Road, Little Rock, Arkansas 72207 Phone: 666-9429. The Annex is second building to left of the Sanctuary entrance.

May 1, 2009: Little Rock, AR
Kay Oursler, aka BiBi Kay, is back from Tanzania and in Arkansas for a brief visit. You are invited to come visit with her at St Paul United Methodist Church in Little Rock, AR. (2223 Durwood Road, off of Pine Valley) on Wednesday, May 6th, 9 am to 11 am. She will speak informally with us about the orphanage that she and the villagers in Tanzania are building.
We will have plenty of time to ask questions and dialogue with her about her experiences.
Since her time in the states is very limited this visit, I am inviting several different groups to come together to make the best use of her time in Arkansas.
Come in your gardening clothes, tennis clothes, work clothes, pajamas, but put on a robe please! Coffee will be provided. Please invite any family or friends that might be interested.
So that we are all “on the same page” check out the pictures and monthly letters on her website:
Kay is a great writer and she is doing amazing work. You will enjoy reading her letters and will love meeting her. We will all be richer for the experience. Please come.
Love to all,
Kathleen Wesson, Friend of Kay (FOK)
