My dear friends and co-workers in the Lord: I do trust that you are all well and enjoying each day the Lord gives you to live. We are grateful to God that all the 25 special children are well and though so limited in their abilities, are all joyfully responding to the love and care that we – together with you all, continue to give them. My biggest joy and encouragement is to see these children smiling, and trying so hard to test their abilities by trying to make movements and to make sounds.
“If anyone serves, he/she should do it with the strength God provides so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power for ever and ever – Amen” 1 Peter 4:11b.

In the last few months, we have hosted several families and groups of people who came for the first time. Many of them had not seen anything like En-Gedi before and some were overcome by emotions seeing severely disabled children healthy, happy and being cared for in a state of the art facility.Testimonies given here affirm the vision of our Home, which states that En-Gedi is, and will continue to be a model for best practices in support and care for children with special needs.

The last couple months we have seen God at work in healing some of the children who had health issues – some which we could not understand and others that we knew to rush to the hospital. One evening,
we went to 4 different health facilities in our town trying to get help for one of our children, but none ofthe facilities was able to fully attend to our child. Finally, I told God to take over and went back home. God used the First Aid pill that I gave to the child and he recovered overnight. Our God is able and always present with us. 

One of my challenges continue to be saying “no” to taking in more children. To many calls to go help out, I painfully refuse to go because I just cannot take them all in. I have to be able to adequately provide for those that I take in. In dire need though, I bow down and rescue one more. Our 25th child is a 2-year-old girl with hydrocephalus who joined the En-Gedi family a couple months ago.

I do not have enough words to thank you all, but I know how to talk to God and my prayer is that God rewards you in His own special way according to His word. Together, we not only give these children the opportunity to live out their full lives, to exploit all possible potentials within them, but we also educate the community on the value of life and how to love and care for special children. If you are one of the many anonymous supporters, God knows you by name and I trust He will bless you in his own way.

Praises and prayer requests:

Praise God for His continued presence with us and His provisions, especially during this hard economic season. Pray that we all remain healthy and at peace. Let’s together pray for the many families struggling to care for disabled children and other relatives in our communities. In a country where we have very limited institutions for people with severe disabilities the struggle is real.

God’s blessings to you all.
