En-Gedi Children’s Home March 2020 update
Greetings dear co-workers in the Lord! Though in March already, allow me to salute you all with New Year greetings and wish you God’s blessings each day of 2020.
We had a lovely end of 2019 and a good beginning of 2020 and so far, we rejoice in God’s love, protection and providence.
On Christmas day, like many families, we shared a Christmas cake and David helped me cut it.
Sometimes last year, we received visitors from Safaricom, the largest mobile phone company in Kenya – who were very pleased with what we do at En-Gedi Home. After a few months, that visit translated to a donation of nine cerebral palsy wheelchairs complete with tables. Indeed God provided what we needed. Praise Him for this connection. May God bless the staff and Trustees of Safaricom Foundation.
We praise God for THREE kids whose abilities have improved big time: Lucky Kalunde, our 7 year old girl is now fully potty-trained as of early February this year. And John, after a long wait in teaching him, is now able to feed himself; and Rose, our lovely and smiling girl can now wheel herself forward and backwards and enjoys a lot when we are outside. Glory and honor go to our God for these physical and notable improvements. All the kids continue to improve in their own ways and for this, I say “thank you” to God!
We love visitors! In January, we had a young girl from Germany who stayed with us for a month; and earlier this month, we hosted 4 ladies from Minnesota.
We welcome friends to come and experience the joy of serving God together.
Praises/thanks: a) Thank God for good health for all the children and the caregivers; b) Thank God for wonderful friends and supporters; c) Praise God for His continued provisions towards our needs; d) Thank God for continued improvement in the ablilities of our children.
Prayer requests: a) please join us in prayer that God will take away the coronavirus – 3 cases already confirmed; b) pray that God will continue to grant us peace in our country (so much politics going on); c) pray for one of our children – Lucky Kalunde whose eyes need some kind of expert medical attention.
Special thanks to all who continue to keep us in prayer; those who financially and materially support us; those who visit us and all who think of us and wish us God’s blessings. You positively touch lives with me. May our loving God bless you in a very special way.
