SYRAH/SODEXO SEND TREATS
Balama was honored with a visit from this country’s President on Thursday the 12th of April. President Nyusi was here to inaugurate the Syrah/Twigg Graphite Mine and the new Agriculture School that is just down the road from us. His helicopter’s pilot whisked him in and out with great skill between heavy rain storms that surrounded our area.
After his departure, our office manager received a call from leaders at the nearby graphite mine stating they had lots of nice TREATS left over from the inauguration and wanted to bless our children. Cake, fruit juice, apples, and other goodies were brought in and sparked an impromptu party enjoyed by all the orphans that afternoon.
And then the rains returned!
Oh well, the food was fabulous, and we are thankful that everyone traveled safely back to their homes.
The Ostrich House kids get a ride. Guaranteed giggles and smiles when Mama Brenda gives a ride to some of the preschoolers.
18 OF OUR YOUNGEST SEND THEIR LOVE TO YOU!
This smiling crowd gathered for a photo today for they are the orphans who attend our Little Disciples program each week to learn Portuguese, basic numbers and their ABC’S. Each day ends with a Bible story and devotions. When a camera appears, the foster mothers and teachers are not to be left out!
18 preschoolers send their love
Thought you would enjoy seeing our happy bunch which are a delight to us all. Truly a great group of God’s innocent ones who have a wonderful chance at a future thanks to your Love.
BABY SANTOS CAME HOME TODAY!
I went to the hospital today to check on this tough little guy, and met his Doctor in the parking area. SANTOS had completed his antibiotics and was ready for dismissal. PTL! God’s timing for sure!
We are to watch him closely for fever, but this little guy is on the road to recovery.
Now 15 days old, Santos is still quite tiny. His new family was thrilled to have him home, so I am sure he will receive the best care that their love can provide.
Baby Santos at home — Truly content with a smile to prove it
Thank you for your prayers and plz keep them coming, for we need him to pick up weight quickly. He’s spent his entire life just trying to survive. Now it is time for him to LIVE ABUNDANTLY in the love of JESUS.
