NATIONAL CHILDREN’S DAY FEAST A SUCCESS
June 1st is National Children’s Day in Mozambique. The 1st to 7th graders are given a holiday as it is a day of fun and feasting for the younger children. With 28 fat chickens, 220 lbs/100kg of rice, 33 lbs/15 kgs of Montega beans, and all the “fixings”, these kids had a wonderful party.
Always fun watching our littlest ones tackle those chicken pieces.
Baby Fatima (pink hoody) thoroughly enjoyed the feast!
From the youngest to the oldest, everyone feasted and enjoyed the fellowship!
Our Children’s Day Celebration begins by singing God is so Good.

Baby Franciano celebrates his first Children’s Day celebration.
It’s a bit cool, as it is our “cold season” in Mozambique with chilly temperatures making a sweatshirt necessary, especially for the younger ones. Thanks to your generosity, a 2nd set of warm clothes has now been provided to each child so that the Foster Mothers can “wash one, while the children wear one”.
THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS WONDERFUL PARTY A HUGE SUCCESS!
BABY REGINALDA NEEDS OUR PRAYERS
“Reggie”, as we call her, was born with fragile bones. Her left femur broke 4 weeks ago but, even with treatment, it has healed bent to the left.
MAF (Missions Aviation Fellowship) very generously offered to fly her to see an orthopedic surgeon in Nampula, 7 hours south of Balama. Going by road was out of the question with such fragile bones as this child has.
Baby Reggie takes a plane ride with Missions Aviation Fellowship. She is the only orphan in our family to fly. Foster Mother Angelina thought it was pretty great to make a 7‑hour-drive in 45 minutes with the plane.
This surgeon felt that with her being only 15 months old, we should wait before trying to correct the problem. With great disappointment, Reggie was flown back 2 days later, with instructions to be extremely careful when lifting her. She is on the best mineral supplements available to help increase her bone strength.
WE NEED A JESUS MIRACLE, and ask that you join with us in praying for her left femur to straighten out, AND for the strengthening of all her bones. NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD! THANK YOU and I will keep you posted on her progress.
JUNE FOOD BUYING DELAYED UNTIL THE 20TH.
With cold temperatures (55°F/15°C nightly and 72°F/23°C daily) and grey cloudy skies, there has been little sun to dry the beans properly. Many may laugh, but for people use to very HOT temperatures, and only thin cotton clothing, this is VERY COLD. That’s why your LOVE GIFTS are so valued, for it allows us to buy the needed clothing to keep our kids warm and healthy.
Having to patiently wait for the beans to dry has all of us a bit frustrated. WE NEED STRONG SUNSHINE, so that is also a prayer request. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes over the next 2 weeks.
