MADELINA RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL!
God answered your prayers for Madelina’s health just 1 DAY after you prayed for her. She is healthy, and eating well after returning to her home with us over the weekend. There is no sign of the malaria, no vomiting, or other symptoms that she experienced on her 7th day of hospital treatment. We are VERY HAPPY to have her healthy and at home!
Baby Madelina and Foster Mother Felicina happy to be home again!
KIDS AND BALLS, A PERFECT COMBO!
Last week, I made a quick supply run to Pemba. While there, I found wonderful small soccer balls (very tough) that were perfect for our toddlers. Loading up the cart with 8 miniature soccer balls brought inquisitive looks from other shoppers who passed my cart. They probably thought I was nuts over soccer balls, not realizing I have 25 little ones who ADORE any kind of ball.

I also found special balls with bells on the inside, which became an immediate hit since they make noise!

BUSH BUNNY HAIR CHALLENGE
Finding a person who can cut woman’s hair in our area is a BIGGER CHALLENGE than imagined as the local Catholic Nuns and I found out this year. Sister Lisha always cut our hair, but when she left last September, it put all of us in a quandary. I had no choice but to let my hair grow long in the back. I could cut the sides and front myself to an acceptable level, but not the back.

FINALLY, 11 MONTHS LATER, I no longer needed dog tags! One of the local Sisters met another Sister at a conference who lives just 2.5 hours away on the road to Pemba! After contacting her, I could finally get my hair cut! It is amazing that what most consider a “little thing” in life can bring such JOY once all is back to “normal”.

A very happy Bush Bunny with a great haircut!
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND LOVE GIFTS THAT MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR OUR PROGRAMS TO CONTINUE SAVING GOD’S CHILDREN.
