QUISTON GAINING STRENGTH
Our 12 babies are all weighed at our food distribution each Thursday. All of them are steadily gaining weight, and I happened to catch Quiston showing off his new strength after his Foster Mother, Angelina, put him on her back to secure him in a “caplana”.

A Caplana is a 7 ft. (2 meter) piece of strong cotton cloth that the mother uses to secures her baby to her back. This calms the baby, as the mother’s walking motion works the same way as the movement of a car ride.
LIFESKILLS TRAINING IN FARMING
Three of our teenage boys are taking final exams this week for last year’s school term. The other 9 teens were busy learning to plant Juko Beans in the proper way. The ropes keep the boys moving in a straight line as they plant the long rows. The video below shows it better than words.

Planting is the easy part. The weed removal in the coming 3 months will be a bit more challenging. Teaches patience and persistence!
STAND UP AND WALK
GENONO, 70, is the oldest church member we have. He still works by making baskets for our mothers to use in food preparation. He loves to visit me, and that entails a 3km/1.5 mile walk for him. His amazing strength is proof of God’s power in his life.

When I met Genono in 2006, he couldn’t walk. His friends carried him to the tree where we 1st had church in his village. He listened, received God’s healing touch, and WALKED HOME! He’s never stopped walking, nor does he take his strength for granted, for he knows that Jesus truly touched him.
He is an amazing testimony to all he meets.
GENONO BELIEVED, RECEIVED, AND ACTED ON IT. GOD’S WORD TELLS US THAT’S ALL IT TAKES.
Note: Our children are all healthy and happy. We are now in a 2nd lockdown due to the virus, but there is none in our area. However, this means no large gatherings for the next 30 days, thus no feast.
Keep praying for us, and know we are praying for you. Let no challenge defeat you, no matter your circumstances, for Jesus is always with you.
