New Life Children's Home: update

Dear Friends

It is with great joy that I come to you all. God continues to bless us and watch over us here at New Life. Our clinics up in the mountains of Pestel have been saving a tremendous number of lives. There have been many stories, and we wish that we could share them all with you, but one in particular really grabbed our hearts. While in Pestel we treated a woman who was on the verge of death due to cholera. She was not just a woman, but was mother to 8 children, all of which she cared for. She was slowly fading away, and to us all, it seemed like a miracle from God was the only thing that would save her. So we prayed. We thought about the 8 children who would become like Alex, whose mother recently passed from cholera, and we prayed even more. We prayed for her life and that God would not allow this woman to become yet another statistic. After 4 days of medical treatment, and 32 liters of IV fluids, she finally turned a corner for the best. What a blessing it was to see her sitting up on that cot, knowing that soon she would be returning to her children again, and that their mommy would be saved. There are so many more personal stories as cholera cases continue to come into our tents daily. Lives are being saved and this could not be done without your prayers and support. We continue to desperately need funds that are solely designated for cholera emergencies. Only in heaven will you see the reward of your faithfulness and prayers.

Our clinics have been saving lives and today we were able to embark on a new journey. We visited a few local hospitals to see various babies who have been abandoned and left with nothing. The babies ranged in age from one month old to two years. A special little boy named Ti-John (little John) will soon become part of our family along with 4 or 5 other infants. Ti-John suffers from hydrocephalus, which is a build up of fluid inside the skull. He will soon become little brother to Chinaido, who also suffers from this same abnormality. Without your prayers and support none of these precious babies would be able to stay at New Life, so thank you for your continued prayer and financial contributions. We look forward to your visits and sponsorships of these new little angels.

Love In Christ,
