|BEAN BASHING BRINGS BUNCHES TO BALAMA
Ask and you WILL receive!
God opened the flood gates this week after our “bean prayer” for 100 tons to fill our barn.
Our GOD is a GOD of MULTIPLICATION, and as we are learning, HE CAN MULTIPLY ANYTHING!
How to activate His Blessings: ASK IN JESUS NAME (with right motive), BELIEVE, AND RECEIVE!
On Monday, Capena spread the word to our 3 churches in the major bean growing area, and the “bush grapevine” was activated.
The Leaders in these areas reported that their beans WERE NOT READY, and that the bean harvest would be small this year. Very discouraging since all children depend on beans to meet their daily protein needs. It also means prices will be higher than normal.
GOD PROVIDES FROM A NEW SOURCE
Our MECUTI PASTOR, Armando, was first to bring his beautiful beans to our barn (1.5 TONS) just 48 hours after the “bush grapevine” went into action.
What’s amazing about this? FOR 3 YEARS, THIS AREA HAS HAD A WEAK BEAN HARVEST!
Pastor Armando’s 40 church members say they can fill 300 sacks! (20 tons) With that news, we happily sent the Pastor back to his church with 100 sacks in hand. When they fill those, we will send more.
GOD IS NOT LIMITED, as Moses stories would tell you. If God can provide food in abundance from heaven, NO PROBLEM to provide beans from a weak field!

GOD’S PROVISION FOR TRUCK REPAIRS
I was shock to find out from Linda, at our Texas office, that a gift had arrived which MATCHED the repair costs of our Land Cruiser’s transmission.
This gift was sent BEFORE the amount of the repairs was known.
We had prayed and ASKED JESUS to provide for the repairs, but no one was told the amount, as I didn’t know what it would be.
Obvious that JESUS totally understands how essential that truck is to our orphan food program, since it is the main truck for hauling to all the remote sites.
I LOVE IT WHEN JESUS PROVIDES THE NEED BEFORE THE AMOUNT IS EVEN KNOWN.
YOUNG COOK AND HOT “POP”, A DANGEROUS COMBINATION
BRENDA ‚PUTTING SYLVADINE OINTMENT ON BAD 2ND DEGREE BURN. BRAVE GIRL, NO TEARS.
Eight year old orphan girl, Vela, found out the hard way last Saturday that a firm grip is needed when moving hot liquid corn cereal called “pop”, from the fire. The pan slid from her grasp splashing over her forearm from elbow to wrist. Second degree burn blisters rose up immediately. Her Grandmother washed off the “pop”, but felt that no treatment was needed since no raw skin was exposed (only huge blisters)
VELA SHOWS US HER ARM EIGHT DAYS AFTER THE ACCIDENT.
WE THANK GOD FOR HER RAPID HEALING.
Little Vela is one tough little girl, and obviously has a HIGH pain tolerance, for her grandmother only brought the burn to my attention 36 hours later, on Sunday afternoon. Only mildly infected, I cleaned and covered this large burn with Sylvadene ointment before wrapping her arm in a sterile bandage. Hardly a wimper left her lips, which amazed everyone, as 4 adults stood by to help hold her if she tried to pull away.
With much Prayer, Tylenol, and Amoxicillin for infection, Valatia returned to school on Wednesday with her bandaged arm, as it was healing nicely.
On Saturday, the 8th day since the accident, VELA WAS COMPLETLEY HEALED with new skin covering the burn area.
God is good, ALL THE TIME!
We PTL for her rapid healing.
DAWN RECOVERING FROM MALARIA
Dawn Horger, our newest missionary, never experienced malaria when working in Southern Mozambique for over a year. She is in Balama only 3 weeks and a nasty mozzy must have found her quite tasty upon her arrival! She had a mild reaction compared to most “first timers”, but said she would rather not repeat the experience.
Speaking from experience, IT IS A BUMMER!
Keep your prayers coming!
Next 3 months will be super busy as we bring in the harvest in order to feed hungry orphans.
