DATE: JULY 2, 2022
Jessica Christie, now a Board Member for Orphans Unlimited, is returning to assist with our children while I am tied up with corn buying. So, I was off to Pemba to fetch her at the airport on Friday, just 3 days before our Corn Buying Spree takes off on Monday, July 4th. While you celebrate the USA Independence Day, our team will be “counting corn” so that orphans in our area will not go hungry.
Jessica Christie, now a Board Member, comes to help with corn buying and much more.
Please forgive the short blogs for the next 3 weeks, as duty calls, giving me little time to write.
MELUCO CORN TEAM RETURNS TO BASE
Our 3‑man-team returned on Monday after a tough weekend of work. Assembly of God Pastor, Manel, our driver, used the Sunday morning to hold a “mini-church” with the 34 men who assisted our team in preparing the 500 sacks of corn for storage. Since few of these men attend church, it was a great evangelistic opportunity to share the Lord’s love.
Village Pastors each counting the 145 sacks that they will fill with corn.
On Tuesday morning, we met with the 106-man team who will help us process the Balama corn. After the meeting, a dozen men assisted Manel in getting the corn chute off our 7‑ton truck and back into the corn barn. All is now ready for the July 4th take-off which will be a 2‑week-marathon, receiving 5,000 sacks (300 TONS) of corn over 10 days.
Unloading the heavy corn chute after the Meluco team returned.
Our team will be weighing and processing simultaneously, making it a very busy time indeed. Keep us in prayer for strength and endurance as well as NO accidents as we tackle this immense job.
All the children, including the infants, are all healthy and fine. Our newest member, Elsa, is responding well to regular feedings, PTL! Our 4 school tutors continue to help all our school-age children make better progress in school.
THANK YOU FOR MAKING ALL THIS POSSIBLE!
MANY BLESSINGS FROM A BUSY BUNNY!
