We thank God and Thank You for providing the remaining 5 goats to complete this first group of 21 widows.
Our sisters and mothers range in age from 20’s to 90’s. All have suffered, many have suffered plenty.
Your giving is helping in many ways. Goats can deliver 2-3 kids per birth, sometimes 4. They can deliver up to 3 times per year.
– This initial animal family can grow to 300-500 in the first year and beyond 2,000 in 2 years.
– Ladies from different families, villages, etc are now helping each other.
-The emotional & spiritual encouragement to our sisters is more valuable than the physical support.
Many of our sisters have vision challenges; our mothers shown above in yellow and light blue plaid are blind. Mom – in the blue on right is a wonderful leader and helper to all!
The first group (A), has been paired with their sisters in group (B), who will help & wait for the first born female. Group (C) had 17 ladies as of a week ago, they will be paired with group B.
One sister has received the initial blessing and is responsible for her sisters blessing, and so on.
Thank you so much to you who have given. This initiative is growing into so much more than we had imagined. God is using it as a “ministry of reconciliation”.
“God can do anything, you know – for more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!
He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, His Spirit deeply and gently within us.” Ephesians 3:20
We are praying, planning and meeting. God willing 3 other communities will launch within the next couple of weeks.
The Turkey was a gift from Clement & Jacob. It’s in the freezer now,,, no plans to eat anytime soon,,, 6 friends from U.S. will be here in late August,,, We’ll “chop plenty” (that’s – “eat good”) when they are here.
