Computer problems makes for short blog this week. I am two-finger typing this on my tablet, letting each photo tell its story.
BALAMA WOMEN’S GROUP VISITS ORPHANS
FOUR women, all Balama leaders in the nationally known OMM women’s group, visited all 5 of our orphan houses today. They were very pleased with our accommodation, foster parents, and the beautiful, polite children we are raising. One family of orphans won their hearts as the children broke out in a welcome song as these ladies entered the gate to their home.
UNABLE TO WALK AT 2 YEARS
Orphan Delfina lives in a remote village visited weekly by our BBC Motorbike Team. Malnourished from birth, this little one had never walked when our team learned of her 3 months ago. With lots of prayer and a weekly drop of food carried in on 2 bikes by the BBC team, Delfina surprised everyone when she stood up at last week’s church meeting and began to walk!
“THE CHILDREN shall lead them” takes on new meaning to the new believers in this village who are struggling to understand how faith in Jesus heals. Delfina listened and acted on what she heard. Don’t let your brain block what your heart knows is truth.
ORPHANED TWINS ENTER FEEDING PROGRAM
It’s been a busy week as we received 4 new babies into our milk formula program. Each time an infant is brought to us, it reminds our staff just how fragile life can be.
Twins spells double trouble, especially if 1 baby is not in the proper position at birthing time. Six months of formula gives these innocent ones a chance at life.
Your love gifts are VITAL to this program, so plz keep these precious babies in your prayers. We have 32 babies needed formula at $5/can/week x 24 weeks. ($120 raises an infant to 6 months.)
PASTOR FRED’S 30 STITCHES REMOVED
At Dr.‘s orders, Sister Ligua (Lisha) from the Balama hospital did the deed. His post-op cast is mostly open down the front. In 2 more weeks FRED returns to his surgeon in Nampula city for cast removal.
Thank you to all who blessed him with prayer and love gifts to expedite his recovery. He will soon be able to walk again on his own 2 feet.
FOLLOWING JESUS MEANS MAKING A DIFFERENCE TO THE LIVES WE TOUCH.
