RESURRECTION EGGS – A BIG HIT ON EASTER SUNDAY
With the churches closed, our children met in their small home groups. No exposure to children other than the ones they live with. This meant our Youth Pastors had to do several presentations, but it all went smoothly, and the children loved the RESURRECTION EGG PRESENTATION along with the large color pictures of Jesus and his final act of love for us.
Teaching the Resurrection story of Jesus in small house groups to our orphans.
If you’re not familiar with these “break open” Plastic Eggs, each egg is filled with 1 miniature piece that tells the entire Resurrection Story of Jesus. Starts with the tiny donkey that he rode upon entry to Jerusalem, and ends with the WHITE EMPTY EGG representing His ascension. This is really a great tool for teaching small groups, so give it a try! The eggs were brought over by a friend from the USA.

We are very grateful that all our children remain healthy and super active during this time of world health challenges.
Two of the triplet girls born on April 2nd presented with serious health challenges this week. Sadly, the little girl, Rosinha, who weighed only 1kg (2.2lbs.) passed away from respiratory complications at the Balama Hospital Thursday night, April 16th. Her sister, Rosa, weighing only 2 kg (4.4lbs) was diagnosed and admitted with Malaria. Malaria is deadly to an infant of only 15 days, making her survival a matter of intense prayer. She needs a Jesus miracle for sure.

The older TRIPLETS (2 boys and a girl) born on March 15th are looking stronger and gaining weight. I take my hat off to this mother, who is raising these 3 babies with only the help of her young son and daughter.

Keep praying for this family, as the babies are still very vulnerable. Since they all weigh between 5 and 7 lbs. (2.35kg to 3.2kg) at one month of age, these 3 have a good chance of survival.
LENDING A HELPING HAND
The 12 beds made for the Balama hospital by a local welder were ready for transport last Wednesday. We were asked to lend a hand since our long bed 6‑ton-truck could carry them all at one time to their needed location. The beds were taken to the new Ntete Clinic Building about 6 miles (12 km) from Balama, and will be used as an isolation ward if virus patients present in our area.

At this time there is no virus in our area, and we PTL for that!
TOGETHER WE ARE KEEPING JESUS’ CHILDREN SAFE AND HEALTHY.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED PRAYERS AND LOVE GIFTS EVEN DURING YOUR OWN PERSONAL CHALLENGES.
