ZITO WALKING WITH CRUTCHES
May not sound like much, but this is a BIG accomplishment for this frail little boy who had no strength or blood for that matter, when I first met him in June.
Eric Dry donated his light weight, aluminum crutches that attach to his forearms. But we had to first build Zito’s physical strength in his arms and his good leg so that he could hold his weight and balance. On the lowest notch, they were “just right” for his height!
He walked out today very confidently and gave us a big SMILE!
Yes, I got a photo, but I’m not computer savvy enough to send it to you until Eric returns in Sept.
Zito now has a bit of color in his eye lids, which means his anemia is correcting itself.
However, I found out today that he is suffering from boils that form abscesses.
He has one under his right arm and 3 on his left hip. After church, I cleaned and doctored all these places, and gave his mother medicine and instructions on how to continue the treatment. With the Lord’s help, we’ll have him healed up in no time.
The church service was great, and the Sunday school numbers are growing. (went over 100 today) with a MIXED AGE crowd.
Many new teenage faces today.
With the Moz. population being 75% UNDER the age of 15 in our area, it is not hard to figure out that the biggest crowd is the children.
All the kids received a cookie today and learned that Jesus is the “Bread of Life” for all of us.
We expect to be over-run with kids next Sunday since this is the first time we gave them a treat.
I’ll be taking a CASE of cookies just to be safe!
Blessings to all of you for making it possible for us to minister God’s love to a lost world!
