FROM “BUSH BUNNY BRENDA” DATE: OCTOBER 18, 2014
BUILDING THAT “FLIPPED IT’S LID”, BACK TOGETHER IN 4 DAYS
If it had to happen, then the timing was perfect, since elections had shut down all schools, including our pre-school, for this entire week Our master carpenters and brick layers had it rebuilt by Friday, PTL!
BABY DANIEL NEEDS A SPONSOR
Three and a half month old Daniel, totally signed over to us by his family last month, is now eating rice cereal and the high protein Hypo Pop!.PTL, as his ferocious appetite was consuming 3 cans of formula a week!
His sponsorship can now be lowered from $60 to $40/month, since his formula consumption is now only 2 cans/week. Daniel is ours for the raising, and a $40/month formula sponsor is needed for the next 6 months.
His attitude is very “up beat” and charming for sure, as he has not only the mothers and orphan girls fighting to hold him, but the BOYS TOO!
AWANA IN PORTUGUESE HERE, LAUNCHING 18 TEAMS THIS WEDNESDAY
OUR GOAL: REACH THE 80,000+ CHILDREN IN BALAMA DISTRICT WITH THE STORY OF JESUS
Pastors bicycled in from all over Balama District on Oct. 8th for a Youth Conference which taught them how to lead Awana games and teach the AWANA curriculum. After many months of translation work by AWANA INTERNATIONAL, the training manual and 22 lessons are ready to go.
The balance of the 66 lessons are to follow.
On Oct. 22, we will launch 18 teams who will begin telling God’s story of Creation to large numbers of children throughout Balama District.
This is the LARGEST EVANGELISTIC OUTREACH we’ve ever attempted, and our leaders are in it for the long haul. Training up a child to truly know the heart of Jesus takes time.
Jesus sent us to seek and save the lost, and the joy I feel to see the fruit from 15 years in Balama, has my heart soaring! For the 1st time, we have enough TRAINED PASTORS to handle the task at hand. We are currently training leaders who are called to this task in both Meluco and Namuno Counties. Once trained, they also will be equipped to reach the multitudes of children in their areas.
ORPHANS UNLIMITED REACHING OUT TO THE AN “UNLIMITED” NUMBER OF CHILDREN. THAT ‘S “JESUS’ WAY”.
