GOD’S FAVOR REIGNS
After 6 days of prayer for favour, and many hours of hard work by our while team, the regional inspector came to “pre-inspect” us last Tuesday.
Three hours later, after seeing all we had done and checking our paperwork thoroughly, he gave us 4 items we needed to correct, but DID NOT levy a fine!
He told us to work quickly to correct these 4 areas by Monday, July 2nd, and that he would tell the main inspector group that we were in compliance.
Three were administration corrections on paperwork, and the 4th was to put smooth cement plaster on the walls of our corn grinding mill and paint it.
All these items were corrected by Friday as our team of bricklayers worked long hours to complete the cement work. Painting will begin this week.
On Thursday, we got the call that the inspectors accepted his report and would not be coming to Balama at all!
All of us were so relieved!
THANK YOU ALL for your prayers for favour, as God gave us more than we expected. I never dreamed we would be exempted!
We serve a BIG GOD who can move mountains! We are so happy he moved this one.
LAME WOMAN WALKS CAUSING HER ANKLE ROD TO BREAK LOOSE
Veronica, the woman who could not walk after breaking both ankles when she fell into a 30 foot traditional water well, has developed a problem.
We took her by car to the Regional hospital last Tuesday for an X-ray as the metal plate and screws put into her ankles to help them heal have come loose!
She was transferred to the Pemba hospital yesterday as she will need surgery to remove them.
Her sister is with her and a neighbour is watching her daughter till she can return home.
O.U. is providing the funding for this, as this woman has no money for food, much less an operation.
We’ll keep you posted on how things develop.
PRESIDENTIAL VISIT IS TODAY
The President of Mozambique flies into Balama today by helicopter and will be in town for 2 days. Over 50,000 people are expected to fill the streets this morning. All churches were asked to have their services at 6a.m. today so that all citizens can be in the streets to greet him by 8 a.m.
Church services will resume normal activities next week.
Our team will be serving at the Balama church, since the large crowds makes it impossible to even drive through the streets.
Love and Hugs,
Bush Bunny Brenda and the Balama Team
