MULTIPLE DONORS PROVIDE SWEAT SUITS FOR OUR LITTLE ONES
Don and Mary of Michigan have sponsored 7 year old Momadi since he was a toddler. With the “cold season” coming, Don and Mary motivated family and friends to help us buy complete sweat suits (pants and jackets) for our 35 little ones under 7 years of age.
Jane and Paul in Pennsylvania donated sweat suit jackets and pants for the over 7 year olds.

The cold season is coming on fast as night time temperatures are already lower than normal and it has been windy. But thanks to our “northern friends” in the USA, our children are outfitted for whatever weather comes our way.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO GAVE SO OUR KIDS CAN STAY WARM THIS COLD SEASON.
MIRACLE TRIPLETS NOW IN 1ST GRADE!
THREE TINY INFANT BOYS were brought to us by 2 female family members for they needed baby formula and clothing. Each weighed in at about 2kg (4.4 lbs.). Their aunt and grandmother had teamed up to care for them, for it was way too much for any 1 woman. The husband abandoned Mom when he found out she was carrying 3 babies.
FOR ALL THREE BOYS TO SURVIVE TO SCHOOL AGE IS TRULY A MIRACLE.
We helped them through several respiratory infections as well as other health problems that face fragile babies in a rugged environment. Usually 1 or more are lost during the first year.
But GOD watched over these 3 and they are now all doing well in their first year of school.
At 2 years of age, the aunt decided to get married. Her new husband would not accept the boys, so she left these three rambunctious toddlers with the elderly grandmother who could not keep up with them. Thankfully, Granny had a niece (a single mom with a baby) who lives near our mission station. Granny and the boys moved in with the niece, and together they make one big happy family.
THE TRIPLETS–Jacobi, Antonio, and Ermilindo (L to R)
Granny adores these little boys, and we were grateful that she had “younger legs” to help keep up with them. Your love gifts provide their needs for Granny who, even at an advanced age, is still farming her fields, but is not able to provide much for them.
The boys help Granny plant and harvest each year in their little training field that is behind my house. Every child must learn how to farm if they plan to provide for a family in their adulthood. THIRTY of our 40 acres at the mission station is used to teach farming to the older orphans who live in our foster houses.
