HOPING YOU ALL HAD A WONDERFUL DAY GIVING THANKS TO THE LORD FOR ALL YOU HAVE.
Here in Balama, it was business as usual, giving out food to orphans and widows in need. Thanksgiving is an American holiday, but I think everyday is a day of thanks as the Lord’s blessings are unending.
BALAMA FAMILY GIVING THANKS FOR ASSISTANCE WITH 7 ORPHANS
Dedicated Aunt and Uncle take in 7 Orphans when they have barely enough for their own children.
This Aunt and Uncle just took on a HUGE responsibility, after this Aunt’s Sister died in childbirth leaving 6 children under 13 years of age, and this newborn as orphans. The father left in a hurry after his wife died, which is a common happening around here. This overwhelmed couple was in shock as they brought the newborn to us for infant formula. They had no idea we would help provide food for the 6 little ones as well! When I read the document stating how many children they were caring for, I immediately asked how they would manage for food. Their answer, “we don’t know”. But that didn’t stop them from accepting these children as their own! BIG HEART hardly describes what they have. My staff and I didn’t hesitate to enroll them in our weekly food program for orphans. They also have several children of their own at home whom they support with their farming. We will assist them as much as possible, for I doubt their farm can produce enough to even buy each of the children a set of clothes. YOUR LOVE GIFTS AT WORK!
BBC CROWDS GROWING AS OUR TEAM GETS ROLLING
Due to a lack of fuel in this area, we are still limited to sending out only 2 motorbikes to the villages each day for the BBC Children’s Evangelism Program. We had hoped the fuel problem would have resolved by now, but it is showing that it could be long term.
Know that we are doing our best to obtain fuel each time it becomes available within a 30 mile radius.
MANY CHILDREN RECEIVING JESUS INTO THEIR HEARTS
End of salvation prayer with new children receiving Jesus!
On average, 30 to 35 children per day are receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior during the devotions time of the BBC program.
Teaching new team games that involve many children at once.
Tug o war, always a big hit with the crowd!
The games are fun, and more and more children are staying to hear the Bible Story at the end. Leaders Carlitos and Daniel do a great job of presenting Bible stories with large picture books to the children.
THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS PROGRAM POSSIBLE.
