Foster Mother Balbina and her girls, the first to get to choose shoes from our Australian donors at Syrah Resources.
These smiles tell it all, as these orphans/abandoned kids show off their new shoes.
Thanks to our Australian friends and their families at Syrah Resources, the orphans received a special treat this week. It was 6 months since they last received shoes, and one look told me those shoes were finished. So out came the ones we have received over the last few months. There are always staff members from Syrah flying back and forth from Moz to Australia. When clothes or shoes are donated, our friend Alex Worley gathers it up and sends it our way with the next person headed to Balama. This is a great blessing for sure.
Note: We normally buy shoes at the local market, but they are already well worn, unlike the donated shoes which are either new or like new. THANKYOUTOALLOURAUSTRALIANFRIENDSFORMAKING A BIGDIFFERENCEINOURCHILDREN’S LIVES.

BBCMOTORBIKETEAMTAKESBAWANAGAMESTO 3 NEWVILLAGES.
Carlitos Jorge and his team of 7 men set an all new record Thursday this week as they explained God and creation to 2,138 children and adults in 3 villages over a 7 hour period.
Folks, this is super hard work, for the team leaves at 5:30a.m. and returns at 1pm, for it is over 10 miles (17 km) to these remote villages on roads that are only suited to motorbikes.
Starting any new program is a challenge, but our team THRIVES on challenges.
They made it happen today using the tug-o-war game to draw a huge crowd in each of the 3 villages. We have permission for 2 other villages in that area, so plan to open them next week.
Afterwards, they had devotions and had those children pray with them who wanted to accept Jesus as their Savior.
