Hello Brothers, Sisters, and Heartdwellers Family.
I hope you continue to enjoy these vlogs and see how you have made an impact in these villages in Zambia because of your generosity, bringing hope and joy to many children.
This is the second group and community we support in Zambia. We have put in charge, an elderly woman named Jane who gathers the neighborhood children in that area for Pastor Chama and Pastor Brian, every month. We are told their needs, and through your donations, we are able to provide the kids with a party, shoes, clothes, or uniforms. When I went there Pastor Chama had a fixed number on each community as to how many children they could help per the donations they received. I told them to help all the children — as many as they can — that we could trust the Lord to provide if he brought more children, and he did, even on that day!
We met with Sister Jane and all the children as they greeted me with song and dance. Then we had a bit of time to talk and encourage them about Jesus’ love. Once precious boy raised his hand stating that he and his sister were both orphans. I explained to them about God’s love and that they weren’t orphans, but they have a Mother and Father in heaven they could pray to and who love them tenderly.
There was another young boy who looked so sad the whole time. Unfortunately, we didn’t film him, however, I found out he was suffering from sickle cell anemia and couldn’t play with the other children. When I was leaving the Lord told me to bring St. Michael’s oil with me, so I did. We anointed him and prayed over the boy. He began to spit up and was being delivered. Then he said he felt much better. We praise God, in His mercy he gave the boy a little relief. But he still suffers from that illness, and he is in need of medical attention, so we could use some assistance for him and his family.
I then introduced them to water balloons. Oh how that was the most fun!! They thoroughly enjoyed it and so did all the adults, myself included. We also passed out toys and had the children create their own bracelets which was a lot of fun for them. To end the day a few of the women in the They eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is cornmeal cooked with water, and they put it in a ball-like dough and eat it with stew, chicken, or greens. Many times the children there eat only one meal a day, just cornmeal by itself, Nshima. If they are a little more well to do they eat it with a side.
I hope you are really enjoying the fruit of your labor and prayers in this ministry as the Lord is moving in this part of the world and wants us to continue moving forward with the Children’s Hope Community Center. We are working on launching the website this month and have published the GoFundMe campaign. Will you help us establish the Children Hope Community Center in Zambia? Partner with us and Jesus to bring Hope to these children and their families.
Stay tuned for more of the vlogs coming up. Love you guys, thank you so much for your support. God bless you until the next message.
