Most of the time, life doesn't warn us of the unsettling experiences coming our way, but our loving Father knows and cares about our struggles and He invites us to bring our fears and worries to Him. That's exactly what we've done at Home of Angels. Many places in our world are suffering and we know that we will also go through times of struggling, but we're going to fight with everything we have to make it to the finish line. What finish line you say? To be able to operate on our own and still be able to help the orphan and the poor. To raise more homeless children and for our two schools to equip the 500 students that we have recently enrolled.
We are currently on our last project and that is our Ptarmigan hostel. For many kids to come from a distance, they need to have a place to lay their heads. We believe we will accomplish this, even in the rains. In the meantime, we've had some sad things happen. Our Pastor Richard was attacked on his motorcycle and hit hard on his head with a sledgehammer, cracking his skull. He's presently being treated by a neurosurgeon that came from a distance and we'll soon know the results. The rains have been unbearable. Currently, the roads are all washed out. For us to bring food in, we now have someone purchase it, drive to a place where Edwin and others can walk, pick it up and carry it back to HOA. It seems that a safe home remains more of a dream than a reality over there now.
Our contractor and workers are still constructing the hostel but with this hard rain, it hasn't been easy for them. We've relied on them for many years and they have never let us down.
Edwin managed to get pictures on a clear day and we're happy to be able show you. Thanks to all of you who have stood with us all these years. Please pray for Pastor Richard and for the rains to ease up.
We'd like you to meet our newest children that have come to live at Home of Angels. From left to right we have Diana, Sheila and Zaina, all girls from our neighbourhood who have lost their parents.
Look at that "Blue Sky" 😊
The hostel is coming along and only because the boys will not give up.
Just to let you all know, I'm planning to travel back there early January for a month. I can hardly wait to see everyone, especially all these little people who I don't recognize anymore. I'm blaming that on being so old. I think I'm going to need prayer too so I won't end up in the Congo by accident. 😉
