OUR CHILDREN ARE GROWING UP!
As all you parents know, you are hugging your precious infant one day, and the next you’re sending them off to school. We only have 4 under 5‑year-olds now as well as the 8 new infants who are NOT IN SCHOOL.
All our first graders this year were received here as infants 5 to 6 years ago. How time flies!
3 little ones on the right came to us as infants with Sozinho and Joenetta entering 1st grade, and Daniel on far right is now a 2nd grader.
Enjoy the photos of some of our families as the children receive their final school supplies we managed to buy this week. Not an easy task to buy for as we now have 71 of our children in 1st to 12th grades.
Sandra (pink shirt in front line) grew up here from infancy and is now a 1st grader. Monica (hooded jacket) will attempt 2nd grade. Please pray her strength holds up.
The Fabulous 5 is now the Fantastic 4, as the 2nd oldest girl, (not shown), decided to marry and left us a few weeks ago. Pressing on, these 4 want to complete their high school education.
With Ali, Alferes, and Helder possibly leaving for teacher’s college, Samuel will become the oldest in the dorm at 18 in the 12th grade.
With only a 2‑day notice last week that schools would open on Monday, March 21st, it was a scramble to find all the needed supplies, for not even the Pemba suppliers were ready for this.
YOUR LOVE GIFTS AT WORK! THANK YOU FOR MAKING THESE SUPPLIES POSSIBLE.
BUSH BUNNY TIDBITS
1. ALI, HELDER, AND ALFERES, the 3 young men who applied for teachers college, are still awaiting results.
2. BABY CHRISTIANO remains in the hospital due to an eye infection and his low weight (4kg at 10 months of age).
He is a fighter, with great perseverance, for the staff are surprised his body is showing signs of improvement against great odds. God is giving him supernatural strength, so please keep your prayers going heavenly for him.
