WOW! Getting back to the fast paced USA has been a bit of a shock to my bunny system!
It’ was overwhelming to go into Walmart for the first time after having only shopping in a little one room store for 9 months.
All is going well in Mozambique, as Eric Dry, my Associate Director, is keeping me well informed of all that is going on.
Much rain has made travel and work very difficult, but this is our “norm” from Dec. to March.
I was heartbroken yesterday when Eric wrote to tell me that our precious little 2 year old ESPERANCA from Impire Village, took ill with malaria last week.
Even though she received treatment, she only lived 2 more days before leaving us to go live with Jesus.
For those who may not know her story, Esperanca was declared DEAD IN UTERO 2 years ago by our Balama Doctor.
The mother refused to accept those words, and came to our church, asking Linda Stanley and our women’s prayer group to pray for her.
After prayer, there was no movement or other sign that the baby was alive, so the mother walked back to her village (15 miles into the bush) very disappointed.
Three weeks later, she went into labor. The nurse at the Impire Village Clinic checked her but found NO HEART BEAT.
Jesus performed a resurrection miracle and that baby received LIFE AS SHE EXITED THE BIRTH CANAL, SCREAMING her entrance.
Shocking everyone, she was found to be in perfect health.
Linda and 2 year old Esperanca can be seen together on this year’s DVD update.
Many die of malaria each year due to inadequate treatment in remote clinics.
This is one of the “roots” that orphans so many across Africa.
Our DVD updates will be available where ever I speak this year for a $5 donation to cover our cost for making it.
If you cannot get to one of these meetings, then you may obtain a copy of the update by contacting Linda Ferguson at our office in Texas.
I’m in Eagle Lake, TX at the moment, staying with my parents.
On Thursday this week, I will leave for Kansas and travel none stop till the middle of March hoping to see many of you as I travel to 7 states.
If you need to contact me, e-mail is the best way. (Brenda@orphansunlimited.org)
If you need to speak to me, then you may text or call me on my USA cell: 210–912-3919.
I really look forward to visiting with as many of you as possible.
