JUMAIDA MAKES MIRACULOUS RECOVERY!
Thank you so much for your prayers! Jumaida totally turned the corner with all symptoms gone on Sunday, Oct. 1st. She was allowed to come home and is now eating well with no gastric upset. I was amazed that she only lost 100 gm after 5 days of IV fluids and very little by mouth.
GOD IS GREAT! HIS MERCIES ARE NEW EVERY MORNING!

SURPRISE VISITORS ON MONDAY AFTERNOON
Due to missed communications, an inspection team from Social Services in Pemba surprised us at 12:30pm on Monday. Seems they sent a notice that we never received. This team first visited our Children’s Learning Center where our 4th and 5th graders were studying Portuguese with teacher Pedro.

Then it was off to visit 2 of our children’s homes. This team has been here before, and truly enjoys meeting with our Foster Mothers and the younger children as you can tell from the photo.

REPAIRING WATER WELLS IN MELUCO DISTRICT
Our water well team was requested by Meluco officials to help them repair 15 water wells in as many villages. Our truck was about to make its monthly supply trip to the Meluco’s orphans. Our driver Manuel who is also head of the water well repair team, just added the water well parts he thought they might need. Manual and assistant Monsur, along with their “guide”, a Meluco official wearing a Cowboy hat, managed to repair 5 water wells in 6 hours the day they arrived. The other wells will be serviced later this month, as they require additional parts that our team didn’t have with them.

THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS FUND SO THAT THESE VILLAGES CAN HAVE CLEAN WATER.
