TWO OF OUR MOTHERS HAVING SURGERY
On Monday, October 31, Foster Mother Bertina (Ostrich House), and Granny Feliciana, mother to her orphaned grandchildren, will be taken by our Office Staff at 5 a.m. to the Regional Hospital in Montepuez for surgery.
Foster Mother Bertina has abdominal tumor near her diaphragm.
Bertina has an abdominal tumor just under her diaphragm that doesn’t appear cancerous, but the Dr. won’t know for sure until he operates. Bertina’s surgery is very concerning to me, as it is not an easy one, due to it’s location in the abdomen.
Granny Felicina having operation on left hip on 31st.
Granny Feliciana has a large tumor on her left hip that needs to be removed. Both women need prayer coverage. The outcome of these surgeries will determine how many days these 2 women must stay in the Montepuez Regional Hospital. Each women will be accompanied by a female family member who will help to care for them in hospital. I will update you next week on their progress.
BBC GROUPS CONTINUE TO GROW IN NUMBERS
Pulling for all their worth! This game really draws the crowds.
I am sharing a video that shows how the little ones are working hard to learn how to run a relay race. Their attempt couldn’t be any cuter.
Little ones haven’t quite figured out the relay race.
The devotions groups are getting bigger thanks to the “cliff hanger” stories that Carlitos tells before the games start.
Telling a cliff hanger story before devotions has drawn many more kids to stay longer and hear about Jesus.
Keep praying for us, as our 2 motorbike teams will be growing into 4 motorbike teams by early November, thanks to a fuel donation from one of our donors. Waiting on parts for the 4th bike, so as soon as that is fixed, we will organize a second 4 man team. This will allow EACH VILLAGE a weekly program. At present, there are so many villages, that it takes the 2 man bike team 2 weeks to visit all of them.
7th OF APRIL ORPHANS RECEIVE NEW SANDALS
Orphans living in 7th of April Village in their new sandals.
There are 9 orphaned children cared for by their 3 Aunts who live in a small village way out in the bush. This village, named 7th of April, sits at the foot of a mountain within sight of our mission station, but is not easy to reach by road. Motorcycles can maneuver the road much better than a pick-up truck. Carlitos of the BBC discovered these orphans in great need when he went there on his motorbike to share the Gospel a few years back. He planted a church there, and trained up a Pastor to teach the Word of God. One of the little boys couldn’t walk, and we are happy to announce that another organization has just donated him a wheelchair! This is a great help for him and his Aunt, as thanks to our weekly food give outs to him, he is now too big to carry. Carlitos told me last week that the children’s shoes were now worn out, so we organized 9 new pairs of sandals, so they can walk in the hot sand. The temperatures are reaching above 96F/36C daily, so the sand gets very hot around midday.
