WEE LITTLE ONES NEED YOUR PRAYERS
Baby Susana is doing slightly better after her blood transfusion 2 days ago. The malaria she contracted in her home village causes a delayed anemia, as the amoeba destroys red blood cells before the treatment can kill it out. Her blood tests still reveal an infection, so she will remain in hospital until that is eradicated.

Each Thursday is when all 26 infants in our baby formula program come in to be weighed, and receive their formula. The tiny twin girls, received last week weighing only 1.9kg EACH had lost 1 lb. Or 500gms EACH in 7 days! The mother is handicapped with only 1 hand, and later found to be severely anaemic (hospital test showed hemoglobin of 3!), so her Sister was taking care of all of them.
Tiny twin girls now in hospital with sick mother (far right) and Aunt (foreground) look after them.
We rushed all 3 to the hospital along with another very anemic infant boy who has only his father caring for him. All were admitted, and blood was arranged for the twin’s mother. One of the twins has an infection and is receiving IV antibiotics also.
The anemic baby boy has malaria, and is receiving treatment. However he has O‑negative blood, which is very rare. His hemoglobin is 4.4!
Only 2 people in our District of over 130,000 are known to have O‑negative blood. Neither of these people can contribute at the moment as they gave recently.
This little one needs a Jesus transfusion!
Please keep them all in prayer, and I will update you next week.
RICE IN THE BARN
Our team did a marvelous job of filling our rice warehouse with 16.5 tons of rice this week. When rice comes directly from the field and is left in its hull (unprocessed), God’s natural shell keeps it safe from all bugs.
Our barns are full, officially closing our food buying for 2021.
THANKS TO ALL OUR DONORS WHO MADE THIS POSSIBLE SO ORPHANS IN 2 DISTRICTS/COUNTIES, will have nutritious food for the next 12 months.
