ERIC’S RECOVERY ON SCHEDULE
His knee is doing GREAT according to his surgeon and therapy has started.
Post Op, his blood sugars were high, but with a strict diet and some
medications, that is now under control.
Eric asked me to send his DEEPEST THANKS to all of you for your love gifts
to fix his knee as well as your continued prayers for his fast recovery.
BULLDOZERS MOVING IN
Friday, Oct. 15, the road crew’s supervisor drove up to my house to inform
me that their bulldozers will be moving in within 14 days.
We cheap prescription drugs must vacate 5 orphan houses as they will be bulldozing to within 3 FEET
(1 meter) of these houses.
The 5 new houses being built for these children still lack the cement
floors, doors, and windows.
My workers have agreed to work 6 days a week till all is completed, so we
have doubled our efforts and are working at top speeds.
Dave DeBoer is key to this effort as he hauls water and building materials
to the construction sites and helps with the warehouse responsibilities.
Millie Daniels and Marta Riggin are making sure that the orphans and the
missions needs are taken care of so I can concentrate on food
20 TONS OF FOOD DISTRIBUTED LAST WEEK TO ORPHANS
The December rainy season is fast approaching, meaning that the roads to
our 3 remote food distributions will close.
Our 6 ton truck is hauling to 3 areas of the county each week as well as
taking 6 tons/week to our orphans in Meluco County, 9 hours drive away.
If it wasn’t for Dave, Millie and Marta, this Bush Bunny would be in
serious trouble, because there is NO WAY one person can organize,
supervise, and execute all that is being accomplished at the moment.
Please continue to petition the Lord Jesus for 2 permanent people to help
The program is growing and it s a HUGE work load for Eric and I to handle.
We desperately need 2 LONG TERM people to come along side us to help.
Financial support is available to qualifed people willing to commit to 3
years of service.
ORPHAN CLOTHING, HOES, AND MACHETTES
Millie and Marta have worked hard to organize and distribute clothing to
the new orphans in the KWE KWE program (298 kids) as well as the IMPIRE
area kids (150 kids).
We have our own clothing factory with 2 sewing machines at our base. Two
men work produce 20 outfits/day.
Organizing clothing to the 900+ kids in the Balama area is no small job.
ALL 500 WIDOWS in the Balama area have received hoes and machettes thanks
to a corportate donor who gave generously for this program.
The Meluco County widows will be receiving their hoes and machettes this
Our goal is to give a HAND UP and not just a HAND OUT to those in need.
These tools, plus the corn and bean seeds to be distributed in November,
will make it possible for these teenage orphans and the widows that care
for them to plant their own fields in the first step to becoming
independent of our food distributions.
Keep your prayers coming!
We appreciate ALL OF YOU and YOUR LOVE GIFTS that make this program a
Love in Christ,
Bush Bunny Brenda
