The twins turn 3 years!

Back to 2012 when these beautiful twin boys were placed in our care and said that we got double the love because it was the day before Valentines day.  They were just at a weight to be able to be discharged from the hospital. 

They were so tiny we had to tie different colored ribbons on their wrists to be able to tell who was who!

Now these guys have turn 3 in January and are so different.  They have started preschool and are thriving.

We continue to be doubly blessed in many ways.  This is only one! 

Ephesians 1:5 He predestined us to be adopted as His sons and daughters through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will.”

Christmas At Zion Village


After transporting everyone back to Zion from the holiday in January, we celebrated Christmas with a
special Christmas message and with gifts. It was a special time since Lisa and Pastor Craig (Senior Pastor of Mt. Zion UMC – the founding church) was here. It was not Santa but it was gifts from sponsors and people who care in the states.

Thank you to all who made Christmas extra special this year for our children.
God bless you and keep you in HIS care!

What a blessing also that God would provide enough that we can give to others. We took a Christmas
message and food to 5 villages and asked the chiefs to pass it on to the rest. We take children so they can learn that giving is better that receiving. Teaching the young ones is better than not teaching
– culture, Jesus, giving…

Luke 2:10-11 The  angel said to them, “Do not be afraid.  I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people.  Today… a Savior has been born to you, He is Christ the Lord.”

Isaiah 9:6-7 For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.  And he will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Christmas Holiday for the children

There were 8 children that remained here at Zion for the holiday month because they are either very young babies or 3 older ones that did not have a place to go. It was a time that we could spend one on one with them and with the little ones, they came every day to our house to watch a video, play with toys, have a tea party or go to the playground.

While children are on holiday we found a special person to look after the little ones and we had a 2 day
Spiritual retreat for staff. During this awesome time we pray together, some give testimonies, we have speakers and team building activities.  The theme for December was LIGHT.  At this time we also celebrate our staff with special breakfast and lunch and gifts.  We also baked about 600 Christmas cookies in my small oven sine the one in the children’s home is not working.

As 2014 ends, may God be your hiding place; may He protect you from trouble, and may He incline your spiritual ears to listen carefully while He surrounds you with joyful songs of deliverance.  May the Lord break each evil bond that enslaves you and shine His healing light on your face.  AMEN!
