UPDATE ON THE 1,500 KIDS NEEDING HELP
Our team has been out all day with the Namuno Health Dept. officials
working to choose the 350 families that are most malnourished, as they
will each get a sack of corn next week along with a portion of dried
Not a decision I'd want to have to make.
We are organizing a Pastor to "Circuit Ride" via Bicycle to these villages
to teach the children about Jesus. $120 will get him a Bicycle.
As of today, donors have given an additional 335 sacks of corn for our
early November give out to these children. Our goal is to give EACH CHILD
a sack so they can survive till the new harvest comes in early March. ONE
SACK of Corn equals 4 months of food for 1 child.
Not bad for a $20 investment. (hard to believe it can be done for so
little, but bulk corn is not very expensive).
Next week's gift will be only ONE SACK/FAMILY, but that will help them
through the middle of October.
Looking forward to hearing from more of you before Sept. 20th!
ONLY 1,165 sacks to go!
GOING TO PEMBA TOMORROW
Samantha Barnhart from Butler, PA is coming for a 90 day stay with us, so
I'm off to fetch her at the airport and do other business while in town.
Sam is an experienced missionary who has a real heart for kids.
I'll be back on line by Sunday.
Veronica, the burn victim, is healing nicely. I'm now taking her to the
hosptial for daily dressing changes, as I ran out of supplies.
She should be walking within a month if all goes as planned.
THANKS FOR BEING WORLD CHANGERS BY PARTNERING WITH US!
