2 REVERENDS RETURN TO BALAMA
Reverends Gito and Ramadan returned to Balama late Monday afternoon after an adventurous trip to Tete City, then on to Malawi for their ordination. The trip was successful, but not without challenges.
L. to R. Reverend Gito, Bishop Zalira, and Reverend Ramadan.
A Cholera outbreak made crossing the border a bit challenging due to restrictions that helps prevent the disease from spreading. We are very proud of both our men, as they are hard working evangelist/church planters with lots more work to do for the Lord.
More on the work ahead of them after I debrief them this weekend, and we set up a plan of evangelistic action.
BOTH MOTHERS CAME THROUGH SURGERY WITHOUT COMPLICATIONS
Thanks to your prayers, both Foster Mothers Bertina and Felecina had no complications from their surgeries.
Foster Mother Bertina Granny Felicina
Bertina’s challenging tumor turned out to be a SIMPLE TUMOR, without complications. PRAYERS ANSWERED, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! She has been released to her home, and will return in 7 days for suture removal. Felecina is still in hospital, as her hip tumor was quite large and involved. I don’t have many details on that, but will update once I know more.
TINY 2 DAY OLD NEEDS YOUR PRAYERS
Tiny 2 day old baby girl Esperanca needs your prayers.
Two day old Esperanca (HOPE) was brought to us on Monday by her Aunt Ernestina for milk assistance. A neighbor had suckled the child from birth, as the mother died shortly after Esperanca was born. Esperanca never received the mother’s colostrum milk, so her immunity is compromised. Our staff was THRILLED to see Esperanca at our Thursday infant formula weigh in. She had gained 50 gms since Monday, and was looking more active. Please prayer for her immune system to strengthen rapidly.
MOVING 40 TONS OF CORN IS A BIG JOB
Moving 40 tons of corn to keep it cooler.
With 20 strong men, who made it look easy to lift 132 lb./60kg bags of corn, we did our yearly shifting to get the corn lower to the ground, thus keeping it cooler. The 4 stacks of corn were reduced from 15 rows to 10 rows in height, with the extra corn being stacked in the free area available after 2 months of food distributions.
The front stacks are easy, as the men removed the top sacks and made a new stack next to it. The 2 back stacks required some juggling to keep the men safe while tossing the sacks from the back stack to the front stacks for easier transport. The photo shows the men moving sacks from one stack to another. It was a relief when it was all done, as no stack shifted or fell, nor was anyone injured. That’s a great day in my book!
WE ARE MARCHING ON FOR JESUS BECAUSE YOU CARE.
