Brenda receiving Licensing Plaque from Balama Administrator.
VICTORY AT LAST!!!!
With license in hand, we are now able to legally host as many orphans as Social Services sends us.
The photos are worth a 1000 words, so read and enjoy the fun we had that day.
All 24 orphans enjoying the banquet in their honor after Plaque Presentation. Goat and Rice for all!
VERY HAPPY ORPHANS in their Banquet clothes. Only 19 shown, as the babies were tired and already taken home for naps
Head table at Banqquet. Left to Right Balama Administrator, Provincial Director of Social Services, Bush Bunny, and two government officials.
Pastor Fred and Program Manager, Capena paying salaries. Capena wrote all the documents necessary for this licensing. Without his help this moment might never have happened.
A TEXAS COWGIRL, LAYLA, HERE IN BALAMA!
Layla showed up at the Pemba airport dressed out in a “square dance” type skirt and her Texas Cowgirl boots!
I cracked up when I first saw her at customs, as there was no doubt where this girl came from.
We have had a great 2 days getting to know each other and are busy getting her orientated to what is where and how to do things.
She is a great culinary chef, so I’m showing her the “Balama way” to roast 2 chickens.
Then we will let her show me a better way to do it the next time.
Lots of work ahead as we continue food distributions this week.
Layla will jump in with both feet to teach English to our children this coming week, as well as learn how to handle the warehouse distributions.
Lots of Love to all of you make this program possible.
