|FROM “BUSH BUNNY BRENDA“DATE: APRIL 4, 2020 BOARD MEMBER, J.L. OBENHAUS, DANCING WITH JESUS|
J.L. OBENHAUS, an Orphans Unlimited Board Member and dear friend, graduated to heaven on April 3rd after a bout with Pneumonia (not Covid-19 related).
Longtime Orphans Unlimited board member, J.L. Obenhaus J.L. LOVED JESUS!
J.L. was always helping someone, which is what Jesus expects of all of us. An active church member, rancher, gardener, and lover of children, J.L. came to our Balama mission station about 10 years ago to get a feel for what we really do here. He planted an Ata Fruit tree (sometimes called a Sugar Apple here), which bears a sweet fruit each year that our children dearly love. That tree is a constant reminder to me that J.L. loved our children and our Evangelistic Program.

Survived by his wife, a big family, and tons of friends, J.L. will be greatly missed! Please join us in sending our condolences to his family and friends.
REMEMBER: When a loved one who believes in Jesus, graduates to heaven, IT IS ONLY A TEMPORARY SEPARATION. If you love Jesus, and have confessed Him as your Lord and Savior, you will see your loved one again and be with them for eternity. Happy trails, J.L., for we will meet again!
HELPING OUR NEIGHBORS
Our local hospital needed a helping hand with transport, as well as the making of 12 new beds. We do what we can, when we can to help, for that hospital is the key to everyone’s health in this area.
This week we had a Land Cruiser going to Pemba for other reasons, so we helped out by fetching a load of supplies needed by the hospital. No sense having a truck return with only half a load. I’m a practical Bush Bunny, and believe in maximizing resources to help others when needed.
Our local Balama welder came up with the solution to the needed 12 hospital beds shown in the photo below. His design is truly practical and well built. We thank him for his assistance in meeting this need.

The heart of Jesus is that we all work together, helping one another in whatever way we can. Thanks to your Love Gifts, we will continue to do so until Jesus returns.
