Many of you remember DIXON from years back, for he came to us extremely malnourished (4.4 lbs./2 kg) at 4 months of age. Today, 8‑year-old Dixon is a handsome youngster in the 2nd grade who loves his pet chicken, “Galinha”. (Chicken in Portuguese).
DIXON represents the 20,000 vulnerable children saved because you care.
Dixon represents the 20,000 plus orphans and abandoned children in the 2 counties we serve with food, clothing, and school materials. These children live today because you shared the love of Jesus that lives in your heart.
The Balama project is now 20 years old, and it keeps on expanding with the opening of orphan home #7 in January 2021. JESUS named us ORPHANS UNLIMITED as He showed me a vision of a sea of children. That sea of children continues to expand.
Thanks to your love gifts we delivered life-saving food to over 1,449 vulnerable children and the 550 widows who care for them.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESUS!
On Dec. 24th our children will celebrate the birth of JESUS with a huge birthday party that includes games and a feast for the 110 children and foster mothers who live in the homes you provided.
THANKS FOR MAKING THIS PARTY POSSIBLE!
INFANT UPDATE: PRAYER NEEDED
1. BABY FATIMA was hospitalized last Thursday after she developed a fever of 101ºF/39ºC. Malaria was ruled out, but the source of the infection could not be determined. She is recovering well after 2 days of general IV antibiotics.

Baby Fatima feeling better but remains in hospital.
2. INFANTS MAEZINHA AND QUISTON both received treatment for dysentery this week. With more energy due to a great diet, both these babies show exceptional curiosity by putting everything they can get a hold of into their mouth. Both are recovering well.
Baby Quiston now has strength to sit up with little support.
Baby Maezinha returning to normal eating habits.
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!
MAY YOU ALL HAVE FABULOUS FAMILY TIME AS YOU CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF GOD’S SON!
