A YEAR ROUND GIFT THAT DELIGHTS ALL
A mural painted on a wall delights all who see it. A month ago, I saw a mural someone had painted at the local high school. One of our staff found out who the painter was, so I invited him to our office to find out if he could paint animal scenes and at what price. (I figured his quote would be too high for our budget, but wouldn’t hurt to ask.)
I had held onto a gift given over a year ago specifically for decorating the children’s homes, but I was never able to find a painter who could do designs. So when Vicente quoted a Noah’s Ark scene that covered an 18 ft/5.5 meter wall for $100 including the paint, I sealed the deal for house #6.

AMAZED BEYOND WORDS was my reaction when I saw Vicente’s painting. He just looked at the picture I showed him from our evangelistic book, and drew it on the wall! After his Noah’s Ark job, a $100 remained of the painting gift, so he agreed to do a Creation scene for another of our homes. Another super mural!

But now the funds are finished, and there are 5 homes without a mural. Number includes house #7 which is in its final construction phase.
Our children don’t ask for much, but they are super excited after seeing the murals, so Mama Brenda is getting many requests from the children whose homes don’t have a “pretty picture”. With Christmas coming up, I wanted to put this “Christmas gift idea” to all of you.
Any size gift is just fine, for I will combine all gifts earmarked “mural” for this fund. Total needed is $500 to complete the 5 houses. Plz email me if you are able to help. It’s a gift that will touch many all year round.
TRIPLETS ENTER THE SAFETY ZONE
All 5 babies in the 2 photos are now eating and growing rapidly. Only by the grace of God, your prayers, and love gifts have we been able to raise all 3 sets of triplets into the “safety zone”.
Rosa and Rosalina are surviving triplets. 6kg each.
Felismina, Filomena, and Filismino all at 6 kg/13 lbs at 5 months.
This means they are eating baby food, gaining weight and strength, so their immune systems are strong against diseases. The oldest set of triplets are not shown as they slipped in to receive their food today while I was called away to deal with a sick child.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EXTENDING A HELPING HAND TO THESE PRECIOUS LITTLE ONES.
