BABY QUISTON JOINS OUR FAMILY
Beginning to look like a baby nursery in all 5 of our children’s homes for young children. With 8‑month-old Quiston (Key-ston) joining our family on Thursday, we now have 11 babies in our care.
Quiston’s Granny has struggled since May to handle this little boy, as she is elderly herself and the youngest family member remaining. Knowing she did not have the means or energy to raise him, she released him to us as he was sick with an upper respiratory infection.

He’s very small and underweight, 4.6kg/10 lbs., 8 months old, born March 3, 2020. This little man is tough, and doing much better after 3 days of medicine for his respiratory infection.
God already answered our prayer for a sponsor through a Christian School in Oklahoma. I am always encouraged when someone emails to say they would like to sponsor a baby, for that is what happened in this case. The sponsor wrote the same day we received QUISTON.
Coincidence? No way! That’s God!

All our children need your prayers, and we are grateful for it. THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SPONSORS who make it possible for our children to have their needs met.
BLOCKED BRIDGE DELAYS DELIVERY
Manel and his team took off at 4 a.m. Wednesday to take a load of corn to the Meluco orphans. They travelled well until 30 km (18 miles) from Meluco town, where the team encountered a broken down log truck blocking a one way bridge. No one knew when the truck would be repaired, as it was too heavy with its log load to be towed.
No car or truck could pass, and no alternative road exists, so Manel hiked up onto a nearby hill to get phone signal to call me. I gave the order to turn around and come home, for the area they were in was a known elephant crossing as well as home to other dangerous “critters”.

By 8 p.m. that night, the team was safely back at our base. The following afternoon, we were delighted to hear that the truck had been moved, and traffic was flowing. Our team prepared the truck and took off at 4 a.m. Friday, successfully delivering their load to the Meluco orphan station. They are on their way to Balama as I write.
Daily, we face many unknowns in the rescue work we do to save vulnerable children. YOUR PRAYERS do more to help us than you will ever know while on this earth. PLEASE KEEP US COVERED IN PRAYER. Our last food truck of the year will leave Monday for Meluco. It essential that this food be delivered before the heavy rains begin this month. THANK YOU!
BABY NELITA THRIVING
Baby Nelita is a true testimony of how well our mothers care for malnourished infants. Nelita’s immune system was compromised and she was in a severely malnourished state when she came to us 1 year ago.
Medical personnel were skeptical that she would survive. WITH LOTS OF PRAYER FROM ALL OF YOU, and in conjunction with our loving foster mothers, God raised her up! She is now walking short distances and playing outside with other children. Her immunity has returned in force!
Baby Nelita thriving after almost losing her life.
Her favourite game is talking to others via her toy telephone. THANK YOU FOR YOUR POWERFUL PRAYERS TOWARDS THIS LITTLE ONE.
