BUTLER FUMC'S FIRST BABY GOAT IS BORN
Little App, a male, black and white spotted in color, was born a bit
wobbly legged on Sept. 13th. No doubt that his Daddy was the Appalossa
male we sold off recently. At one hour of age, Little App was a bit
confused about where to find the milk, so Mama Brenda had to show him the
faucet. Once he got the hang of it, he was eating with gusto! On
Saturday, I found him sound a sleep, curled up next to his mother in his
birthing stall at our FUMC barn. On Monday, he'll be carried out to where
the goats feed, so his Mama can rejoin the herd.
There are several other females about to "bingo" which were purchased by
the FUMC Sunday school kids.
So FUMC Kids--get ready, cause your herd is about to double!
VERONICA VISITS NAMARA CHURCH
Veronica is the woman who burned her foot in her cookfire (losing more
than half the skin off the bottom of her left foot). After 3 weeks of
intense treatment, it is 70% healed. This in itself is a miracle and even
the Balama Dr. says so, as he's personally doing the daily dressing
changes and treatments for her. Prayer and life saving "Silvadene"
ointment brought over from the USA has helped accelerate her healing.
Today I put a rope bed in the back of my pick-up and off we went to Namara
church after a 6:30 a.m. hospital treatment time for her foot.
The church members and her family were glad to see her and it greatly
boosted her moral.
Thanks for all your prayers for her. She should be walking by the end of
ZITO'S ABCESSES HEALED!
Thanks to prayer and MELALUCA (tea tree) oil, Zito's numerous abcesses
are all healed! He's struggling to walk with the crutches because his
good leg needs more exercise. So he and I did a set of exercises
together after church, and I set a 50 yard/meter goal for him to
accomplish by the end of the month. I promised him if he did it that
I'd reward him with a nice toy. THAT brought a smile to his face! He's
a determined little boy who just needs someone to be his "trainer" and
TODAY THERE WERE NO SICK KIDS IN CHURCH
This is a first, as the kids have grabbed onto God's Word and are
totally healthy. The Sunday School is growing as over 100 kids flowed
in to hear DAVID AND GOLIATH's story today. I showed them how to be a
"DAVID" in their everyday walk with Jesus.
The adults were taught how to use God's spiritual "weapons of warfare" to
keep their families safe from sickness and other problems.
WORD OF GOD
NAME OF JESUS
BLOOD OF JESUS
PRAISE AND WORSHIP
When they left, all of them knew their authority in Christ and were
challenged to bring their friends next week.
Remember us in prayer this week as we start the corn buying with the gifts
you've sent for the Namuno children. Will be a busy 2 weeks for sure!
Love and Hugs,
Bush Bunny Brenda in Balama
