|ORPHANS UNLIMITED ANNOUNCING NEW ADDRESS FOR LOVE GIFTS
Our Board decided our Postal Address should be in an area that doesn’t flood, and does not depend on flood-prone Houston for its mail.
Our new address for Love Gifts is:
562 Hwy 123 Bypass, # 301
SEGUIN, TX 78155
Seguin is just outside San Antonio, TX, and is closer to our office than the Houston address. This box is already in service, so please feel free to send your September gifts to the new address.
The old address will continue to receive and forward your gifts to us for a limited period of time to allow for everyone to get the new address in their records. Please notify your bill-pay or automatic payment services of our new address as soon as possible.
If you need new pre-addressed envelopes, please email us with the quantity you need… or enclose a note with your next love gift.
Your patience and understanding during this time of challenges is much appreciated.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR ALL THOSE AFFECTED BY HURRICANES IN TEXAS, LOUISIANA, AND FLORIDA AND OTHER NATURAL DISASTERS ACROSS THE WORLD.
GRANNY MIRACULOUSLY MAKES BREAST MILK FOR ABANDONED BABY
Eight day old Baby Jacinta is our newest family member who was literally born “in the road” of a remote area. Sadly, this mother decided to abandon her baby and run away, leaving the newborn to die on the side of the road.
Along comes Grandmother Fatima a few minutes after the baby was abandoned. She sees the baby, quickly scoops her up, and wraps this small, still wet newborn in her own skirt. (Talk about a Good Samaritan Story!)
Grandma Fatima was desperate to save this little girl who only weighed 2kg (4.4 lbs), but she did not have any friends who were nursing a baby at this time. So she put Jacinta to her own breast, and not knowing for sure if God truly existed, she asked Him to give her breast milk.
HE ANSWERED and the baby drank its first meal a bit later! (Never underestimate the faith of an unbeliever.) Grandma Fatima realized she could not raise this little one for she knew her years are limited. So she used her “widow’s mite” to get a ride to Balama with the local mini-bus driver. Social Services brought her to us with a written request asking that Baby Jacinta be allowed to live in one of our foster families. She was immediately accepted by one of our foster mothers, and is already gaining weight after 4 days of proper baby formula.
MIRACLES IN JESUS’ DAY WERE GIVEN TO ALL, EVEN THOSE WHO DIDN’T KNOW HIM. ONE THING IS FOR SURE. FATIMA NOW KNOWS GOD EXISTS AND HE ANSWERS PRAYER!
NEW CHURCH OPENS SAVING FIVE ORPHANS
The BBC Motorbike Team celebrated the opening of their 2nd church this week in the remote village of 7th of April.
THIS IS DIRECT FRUIT FROM THE BAWANA GAMES PROGRAM.
Over 1000 villagers of all ages attended along with all 11 of our remote Pastors from around Balama. These Pastors prayed for the sick, and taught the crowd about Jesus.
I am told the church has only 27 adults in regular attendance, but over 900 children show up to hear the Jesus stories!
A Granny brought her 5 orphaned grandchildren for prayer. (TWO of the boys, ages 12 and 8, had to be carried for they have suffered with deformed legs since birth.) The 1 year old orphan baby has eye problems. All 5 children are moderately malnourished for the Granny and her daughter who tend to these children do not have enough food to feed them.
Once this report was given to me, we immediately accepted them into our weekly food program. The following day, Fred, our Provincial Pastor, drove back to this village on his own motorbike to take a week’s worth of food to these children.
The BBC Team will continue to deliver food to this family each week as they take the Word of God to this remote area. (Sorry, no photos available of these kids at the moment. Pastor Fred’s phone camera malfunctioned.)
YOUR LOVE GIFTS AT WORK!
THANK YOU FOR GIVING US THE HELPING HANDS NEEDED SO THAT OTHERS MAY LIVE.
