Blessed By Our New Internet Connections To Dono-Manga

Children in School (6)Hearing them reminded me again that what we are doing is so very important.

Our new Skype connection with Dono-Manga, Chad has brought us so many blessing this past week. It was made even more special this morning as Barb and I watched and listened to our now 63 orphans sing, “We must follow Jesus no matter how rough the road”. Rambi Ayala, our Director of Operations for Africa, had taught it to our team of four as we traveled many hours across three nations in Africa in 2010. Now during his visit to Dono-Manga he taught it to our orphans.

As the song ended with hands waving with thumbs up and shouts of “Thank You”, I thought of the 7 ladies who have faithful

provided the monthly donations that enable us to feed these children. I remember also when we returned from our trip in 2010 sharing the dream of providing an orphanage “someday” in Dono-Manga and two families stepped to the plate and said we will do that. Within a matter of a few months the orphanage was built complete with a walled compound, their own well, and the location chosen was less than 100 yards from the Jordan Health Center that would provide for their health care.

It will soon be 4 years since we answered that first SOS from Dono-Manga. There has not been one day during that time that I questioned that this was the work of God’s hand. It is without a doubt the most humbling work I have ever been a part of.

To those of you who support this work, thank you seems so inadequate to express how we feel about you. You are not only a blessing to the people of Dono-Manga, you are a blessing to us as well. Without your willingness to be used by God we simply could not do what we do.
