Amazin Grace

The operations have been a success. Our young girl with the burned feet is healing well from the skin grafts.   It has been a long haul for them but they are so fortunate for the support of people like you who have helped with the many operations and days in the hospital.  

Our team was out visiting them today.  They were one of the stops that was from  a day of food deliveries. 

We have guests on the farm right now that are dutch family visiting from Europe. They  had heard about the farm and the  food deliveries that we were doing and wanted to be a part of that.  They told some friends that they were coming to the farm guest house and were able to collect money to do a huge shop and then a couple days of deliveries.  There are a couple hundred people that will be happy fed and clean because of it. 

They filled a truck with things like soap , diapers, pasta, rice, flour, sugar, oil and much more .  Then it was time to relax after a long day . 

Today was an early start to the day with bringing food drops to families in need Like Auxana bellow .  She is standing in-front of the new barn that she has been building  herself.

Along the way they have been finding many needs like a family who's son had broken the light on someones car and now the whole family is in trouble and had no money to fix the damage .. kids ! Our guest was able to help with this .. 

There are just so many needs that we can not fix them all  like this other family that is behind on their water bill and if they do not come up with $40 then they are going to have their water cut off.  We don't have money right now to cover this.  But its funny, Is it just me or do others have a harder time paying bills, and  If I was told that for only $40 I could bring water to this mother and 5 kids I would think that was a great deal ...   so I am open if anyone thinks this is a great deal let me know . 


Others you know that they have many needs but they are just so thankfull for what what we are bringing them that they don't share their other needs .. maybe they are just shy .. maybe when we have more teams this fall we will be able to go a little deeper with some of the quieter or shy families and see if their is some way to help them to improve the quality of their lives 

Along with families, there were three orphanages visited today as well .. more then just food, we brought a lot of cleaning and laundry supplies .. Laundry soap is something that most do not think about donating yet it is so important for the kids to have clean cloths and not spread infections through clothing and sheets. Of coarse no visit to an orphanage is complete with out breaking out the bananas .   

even the workers get a banana today at the treatment home 

 Next up was the Tokmok baby orphanage , 

then it was out to Orlofka to the orphanage there 

After a long day of deliveries it was back to the farm where Aiperi had prepared pizza  for them.  

Tomorrow there will be four more deliveries to some more families in need .  

What awesome guests to the farm .  We have been so blessed by them and their desire to help us off the farm with so many of these needs .. very encouraging.
