CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION RECEIVED
Certificate of Recognition given by Balama Administrator to our church
The Balama Administrator honored us with a Certificate of Recognition for all that our program (Igreja Aguas Vivas/Living Waters Church) has contributed to assist Balama’s children and widows over the last 21 years. It is a great honor to receive such recognition as it is not given lightly. NONE OF WHAT WE ACCOMPLISHED would have been possible without our “behind the scenes” partners (you)! It is an honor to serve the Lord in helping youngsters have hope of a better life when they have lost all that really matters to them, their parents.
BABY ANCHA NEEDS PRAYER
This little 5 month old girl has had a tough start in life, as her mother’s mental illness kept her from being properly cared for. Only 3.6kg/8 lbs when we received her last week, Ancha has fought off malaria, diarrhea, and an upper respiratory infection. But in her fight to survive, her first transfusion made no improvement in her blood count when her 2nd set of lab tests were received. A SECOND TRANSFUSION was given on Tuesday of this week with better results (Hbg 8). On Friday, Ancha once again had a fever, vomiting, and diarrhea. The hospital had only a small amount of a very strong antibiotic that she needed, so our Pastor/Driver Manuel left at 4 a.m. this morning to pick up more of that medicine from a pharmacy in Pemba. PTL that they had it in stock!
UPDATE: Ancha is showing improvement after two doses of strong antibiotics
PLEASE PRAY FOR BABY ANCHA’S FULL RECOVERY. SHE NEEDS A MIRACLE TO PULL HER OUT OF THIS.
