HEAVY RAINS WRAP UP 2020
Rain means our corn/bean fields will grow, PTL, but it also crushed our hopes for the children’s feast on Dec. 31st. So Bush Bunny and staff pulled out the reserve plan by loading the toys, cookies, and individual koolade bottles into my fully covered King Cab.
When the rain paused at 7 a.m., off we went to deliver the goodies house to house. Sunshine filtered through the clouds just long enough to get family photos of all 6 children’s homes. Each house with small children received a miniature soccer ball so the under 3‑year-olds can have fun at home.
Beautiful “Gazelle House” with their gifts.
Our precious Ostrich House family.
As I was getting the “Rabbit” family of Victory House lined up for their photo, the children’s hands were full holding their presents (and they weren’t letting go). Thirty-month-old Jesuino tried to hold his gifts AND THE NEW BALL, but couldn’t manage it. The ball fell to the ground, so I placed it at his feet and stepped backwards to take the photo. Next second, I was hit full body with that ball as Jesuino rared back with all his might, kicking the ball perfectly to his “goal”.
THE KIDS ROARED WITH LAUGHTER, for Mama Brenda forgot that this little one can’t resist kicking ANY BALL within his reach.
Solution: remove his koolade bottle so he could hold the ball. His face is one of total determination, daring anyone to take the ball away. Our future soccer star for sure!

The Lion House kids!
Seeing the smiling faces of our children as we gave out gifts house to house, brought great joy to all of of our staff. Next week, we hope to have our “picnic” with the kids. Just need a morning of sunshine and dry ground as it is totally an outdoor affair.
Buffalo Boys with pocket money for shopping, treats and a new Soccer Ball.
For some of our Zebra House kids it was their 1st toy ever!
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO GAVE SPECIAL LOVE GIFTS SO OUR CHILDREN COULD HAVE SPECIAL TREATS THIS YEAR.
HAPPY 2021 TO YOU ALL!
STAY CLOSE TO THE LORD, AND NEVER DOUBT HIS WORD. IT IS FOOD FOR YOUR SPIRIT AND ENCOURAGMENT TO YOUR MIND. HE TRULY IS COMING SOON.
