Hi everyone – here’s our update,
On the Home front, Angela is officially an Australian citizen and has an Australian passport, which means we are no longer obligated to spend a minimum required time in Australia.
In other news – we have started putting the foundations down on our house – personally, after twenty years of building and renovations for others, to build for us is exciting! Never been so excited about blocks. This is the fruit of Angie’s hard work in her business giving us a small cash flow to do things stage by stage.
The South Sudan container has arrived and been offloaded. After an elongated and drawn out issue with the Kenyan Port Authority, we had the situation resolved with the help of the Kenyan Transport Minister (Angie’s brother-in-law).
In Nigeria, outreach and donations continue week in and week out with the Gospel going where many fear to go.
Hospital ministry continues with thousands being healed each month and hundred being saved – God’s name glorified.
The greatest testimony is seeing the wards empty – that’s the God we serve.
We sponsored a local golf tournament that was used to raise funds to buy new furniture for Children of Promise Orphanage.
We helped host a seminar for the world leader in adult stem cell therapy (non-embryonic). In short, they harvest bone marrow from patients, filter out all non-stem cells, and inject back into the spin where the cells set about making new brain cells.
Huge results have been seen for autism, cerebral palsy, stroke, brain damage, and many others.
Building of the new community centre in Lukunga Swamps continues with a church, and school clinic outreach post.
We also co-sponsored a youth outreach program tackling drug and alcohol abuse which is a problem that is growing at an alarming rate.
Last week we just handed over the last of our medical equipment to the office of the Mayor.
We stepped in to take care of some serious bills this month. The children are progressing well. We look to partnering with Rotary to build a school. We are also looking into ABL (Applied Behavioural Learning) for expanding beyond autism and into other neurological disorders like cerebral palsy, motor neuron issues, brain damage, etc.
This year we began working with the community group “Youths for Change” – a local team of youths working to engage youth to get involved in the community to teach them about giving more than receiving. I so admire groups who aim to tackle the big issues like drug abuse and alcohol.
This last week while being a part of the National Independence Celebration, we came across a lady by the name of Purity.
In the follow up meeting and connection, the Mayor’s office has taken up the challenge on the health sector, and we have made an appointment for surgery in March for Purity – we are in the process of securing all that is needed. Purity’s condition is currently not curable, but is treatable.
Locally a bank account has been set up in Purity’s name – we look not only to get this growth removed but also to help her get ahead. Currently she makes a living selling charcoal, but we can help out so much more.
I want to make this a successful campaign – firstly to help Purity, but also to encourage the “Youths for Change” team that have stood up and become the change that needed to happen.
I have set up a GoFundMe campaign where you can give to this cause if it has touched your heart like it did ours.
