BUSH BUNNY’S HOUSE ROBBED IN MOZAMBIQUE
Sometime last night, a child with at least one adult, broke into the back of my bedroom at our mission station in Moz. An axe was used to pry open one of the solid wood shuttered windows. (they left the axe behind as proof of how they got in).
Footprints from a small child, approximately 10 years old, were found below the window.
The shutters are too narrow for even a small adult to climb through.
The prescription medications online room was completely ransacked with all my clothes and other items pulled out of boxes and suitcases onto the floor.
Without me being there, it will be hard to determine exactly what all they took.
For sure, the electronics were taken.
Personal DVD player with headphones
Ministry DVD player used for our Bush Bible School
16 inch flat screen used for teaching purposes in several programs
Some of the medications for the kids
Anyone who has been robbed while away on a trip, knows that it is very upsetting and leaves one feeling very violated and angry.
We have 2 night guards on duty plus 4 dogs, but whoever did this knew the guard routine, and knew to stay on the side of the house where the guard dogs would have difficulty hearing them.
All that can be done now is to add more security to the windows and have the guards make more round each night to make sure no one can sneak up on the my house .
At the moment, I’m in Tulsa for the week, as my out of state speaking tour is just beginning.
I’m making new friends, as am now “mentoring” missionaries who desire to start orphan foster care programs in 3 countries.
Foster care is the most LOVING and practical way to care for 1000’s of orphans. We at Orphans Unlimited know for a fact that God prefers His children be KEPT IN THEIR CULTURE, since He ordered me to do it that way in Moz.
Social Services from the national government level inspected us this year, giving our program their highest accommodation for our care of 1,600 orphans in foster care.
They asked to use our program as a model for others desiring to care for orphans in Moz.
I’m now sharing this information with any missionary desiring to care for orphans throughout Afric.
The model will work in any country in Africa.
We appreciate your prayers and loving concern for us and our kids.
Blessings, Bush Bunny Brenda
