SIX MONTH PERMIT IN OUR HANDS!
This is a GREAT accomplishment after a 2 year wait and many hours of writing a BOOK containing the needed documents.
The State Office of Social Services has blessed us with a 6 month permit for our orphan program, thanks to all the improvements we made in the building projects, as well as the increased children’s programs we have added to meet the new requirements.
This is the first step to the permanent document that we seek. Capena, our office manager and document producing expert, is working diligently to complete the needed changes so we can apply for our FINAL LICENSING DOCUMENT.
So all is great, as we have till February, 2014, to finalize everything.
THREE SOULS ENTER GOD’S FAMILY….
after a bold gospel presentation at our Thursday food give out by Melissa Olmesdahl, our new Youth Leader. One person who came forward was a BIG SURPRISE, as this teenage boy has been extremely “rebellious” in the past. Melissa was floating on the clouds the rest of the day, since this group has not shown much interest in knowing Jesus in the past few weeks.
I know everyone is off for a 4 day weekend, so I plan to keep this short. I hope all of you have a GREAT WEEKEND of FUN and hopefully splash around in a pool somewhere to keep cool. Winter will be upon you before you know it.
All our kids are out having a great time playing on this beautiful sun shiny day. Our 10 teenage boys are just 1 hour away from their first basketball match against one of our town’s youth teams. They are a bit nervous about it as they feel much more comfortable with soccer. So I’ll soon see how much the Bunny’s training drills have helped (or not).
So like most “proud Moms”, the Bunny has to go cheer them on!
Aguas Vivas (Living Waters) boys are in BLUE uniforms. First half our boys did GREAT and were winning, but they didn’t have the stamina to last the 2nd half and lost 32 to 20. It was a great game and it taught the boys how important conditioning is if they want to win. BBB
Love and Hugs to all of you. Bush Bunny Brenda and the Balama Team
