ADDITIONAL 75 ORPHANS SINCE OCTOBER DEPLETES OUR FOOD STORE
In the 17 years I’ve been in Balama, I’ve never had to admit so many moderately malnourished children into our Thursday food program. Since last October, the numbers have been slowly creeping upwards until it has now reached 75 new admissions needing food each week.
These 5 children and their grandparents, whom we admitted last week, are a prime example of the many others we have had to admit in the last 5 months
To meet this additional need we are now milling more than 140 sacks of corn/month. (Oct. milling was only 105/month).
I must ask your forgiveness for letting this need slip up on me, but our sack count shows that our corn supply will be depleted by April 20th, leaving 5 weeks to go before normal corn buying starts.
We have enough funds remaining from our 2015 food budget to cover 75 sacks, but not enough to cover the remaining 100.
A farmer has agreed to sell us the needed 175 sacks of fresh corn at $16/sack. (April 20th is way too early for dried corn, as it is still on the stalks in the field.)
I thank you now for any help you might be able to give us so these children will have food during May.
STREET CHILDREN MAKE THEIR WAY TO SUNDAY SCHOOL
SUNDAY SCHOOL DRAMA HELPS CHILDREN UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR SALVATION
Last Sunday, Bertino (playing Jesus on the left) and Daude (playing Satan on the right), gave a very effective lesson to the many new faces in our Sunday School Class. Many of the children did not know about the need for Salvation through Jesus to reach heaven, so this illustration brought the point home.
The lesson was simple: No one can stand with 1 foot trying to “find” Jesus and 1 foot in the world serving Satan.
The more the boy sinned, the further the baskets were pulled apart as he grew older.
Each man must CHOOSE JESUS or fall into the “pit of hell” when he dies.
Choosing JESUS is the only way to VICTORY!
THE LESSON MADE IT’S POINT!
For 30 hands went up afterwards to receive Jesus!
The “eye gate” is a powerful tool, for it is by seeing an illustration that we learn the fastest (both the right things, and sadly the wrong things too).
REVEALING JESUS through visual lessons AND OUR ACTIONS OF LOVE, is what draws the children to HIM.
My greatest reward is in training up Youth Leaders to bring JESUS to the children
Blessings in Christ Jesus!
