NEW RESIDENT & NON-RESIDENT CHILDEN

Yacouba (13)

After Tidiane I told you about last time, we took in another child recently - Yacouba (estimated 13 years old). This is his story:

Yacouba guesses he was born in 1999 near Sikasso (south of Mali) where he spent his early years. His father only had one wife, and Yacouba had 3 older sisters and 3 older brothers. When he was 10 years old, he decided to leave home because he couldn't stand his father's beatings any more. He first goes to a Muslim teacher (Marabout) in Sikasso, but leaves already after 10 days because he doesn't like it. He goes to Bamako where he ends up sleeping at the bus station and begging for money during the day. After about a month he hears about us and first comes for sleep and food in May of 2010. After about two years of coming now and then, he starts coming daily and gives his life to the Lord. We notice him quickly because of his keen interest in God, and now he's part of our family, eager to start school for the first time in his life.

Yacouba already has a sponsor.

 

Rokia (7)

We recently added Rokia to our non-resident sponsorship program when I heard her heart-breaking story. I was asking our faithful Christian carpenter Caleb how his family was doing when I discovered that his and his kids' hearts were broken because of their separation. Since the parents could not afford the schools in their neighborhood, they sent their daughter and son away to relatives to live and go to school there. The sponsorship for Rokia and her brother enables them to return home and receive a quality education. I wished you could have seen the gratefulness in their parents' eyes! How rewarding to be able to unite a family this way!

Rokia still needs a sponsor for $60 or 40€ per month. Please contact me if you'd like to become her "parent abroad" and be in touch with her by email and skype.

 

Marie-Madeleine (13)

Marie-Madeleine is Paul's half-sister, and our cook Elisabeth's daughter. Her sponsorship is what allowed her to start school, and she's grown into a fine young lady now starting 8th grade. Marie-Madeleine used to have 2 half-sponsors but recently lost one.

If you'd like to cover a half-sponsorship for her for $30 or 20€ per month, please contact me.

 

OUTREACH & FLORENTIN'S HEART

In July four of our older boys left on a 3-week YWAM outreach to a town in western Mali - what a great opportunity for them to learn, be a light and grow. After two weeks, they sent Florentin home for health reasons.

He looked pretty bad, and we immediately took him to a good clinic to be checked out. We have already spent a few hundred dollars just on tests, and it was discovered that he has a heart condition that needs an operation to be corrected. Thanks to medication he is now taking, he's feeling fine for now. That gives us time to find a way to organize this needed operation.

If you know of any organizations who pay for travel and all expenses for children from third world countries that need life-saving operations, please let me know.

Today our other three boys returned. They say that their lives have been changed, and time will show.

 

OUR WALLS CRUMBLE

A week ago it rained especially hard during the night (it's the height of rainy season right now), and we got up to two crumbled property walls in the morning. Many neighbors' houses had completely collapsed. This picture was taking from the street OUTSIDE, and you can see our dining hall inside and our gate.

We've paid $600 to use metal sheets to temporarily close the two huge gaps in the wall, but will have to wait until end of rainy season end of September before building a new wall, which will be costly. In addition, September is the month where we have to spend huge amounts of money on tuition for our 33 children in school.

Any help with those expenses is greatly appreciated!

QUICK NEWS

  •       Summer Holiday - Our kids are doing really great, which is wonderful to see. They've grown so much. This summer their French has improved, and several work out with me every day.
  •       Power Outages - Things are still not sorted out with city electricity. We figured out that though they installed the lines necessary, they restricted our access only giving us a third of the electricity possible (why?!?) which is insufficient. Now we have to wait for WEEKS again before they come to lift that restriction.
  •       Political Situation - No changes since last time. Things are moving forward slowly towards a military intervention in Mali - that could be either good or bad at this point.
  •        Construction - On hold.
  •       Book Translations - My book is being translated into German and French right now. The German translation will be released before Christmas; as for the French we have to pay $2,000 for the translation, and then have a publisher accept it. Any help with that expense would be very welcome.
  •        Back to School - I've started my 6-week course that will add another healing dimension to this ministry, and am excited about what God has in store in the future.
  •       Volunteers - We don't have any volunteers in Mali right now, even though we really need a few; if you'd like to come help us, contact me.

 

The wise also will hear and increase in learning, and the person of understanding will acquire skill and attain to sound counsel [so that he may be able to steer his course rightly]. (Prov 1:5, AMP)
