Well, so I know I said that I would be posting updates from my Mom, but as you can see that has not happened. I always have good intentions when it comes to blogging, but it never seems to play out that way… sorry guys. But let me cap what’s been going on for the past few weeks.

Rachel and Rita have been doing really great! It’s precious to see the way the Rachel cares for her baby sister, and is always watching out for her as they are in a new place with strange people. Having some extra loving hands around the house has made their transition a lot smother! I’m still working out all the details of where they will be going in the next few weeks, but for right now they are very content to play outside in the dirt, and eat lots of beans!

Praise the Lord! We now have a VAN!!! Thank you Amazima Ministries for graciously donating your old van!!! We LOVE it!

Selah has the chickenpox…waiting for the rest of them to catch it…

Nusula has gained almost 2 pounds, and is looking great! Her age was estimated closer to 1 ½ or 2, and the more time I spend with that girl the more I am convinced that she is toddler going on twenty… She is so smart! She’s learning new words everyday!

SCH has decided to hire a nurse once a week to come and put on a small clinic for the people of Masese! We attempt to offer some medical treatment to the community, but can’t handle all the needs here, so we have found a wonderful Christian lady, Constance who will be coming every Wednesday morning! Right now we have been incredibly blessed by having a large portion of our meds donated, so Constance will be using our front porch, donated medicine, and Jesus’ love to provide the best treatment possible!

I broke my toe the other day..not even a good story, I just wasn’t paying attention.

Ok, well I need to go... My Mom is making my favorite dinner ever!!! All the kids are waking up, and Selah is about to wake so she can continue crying until she goes to bed-life calls…


  1. Hugs Renee!

    What a blessing to read how God continues to provide and LOVE on your family!

    Blessings in His precious name!

  2. So excited about a nurse for Masese!!!!!

  3. Ouch! The toe picture made me cringe. I remember having five little ones with the pox at once - praying Selah comes through it soon and well. Thanks for welcoming Brigitte there - it's such a blessing for so many of us to share in the SHC story through your blog, your mom's posts, Brigitte's blog, and Carl's. You are a treasure! Love, Moira

  4. Continuing to pray for your ministry. Tell your new nurse, Constance, that I will be praying for her as well because my formal name is also Constance (not too many of us around!). May the Lord use you to touch many lives for Him. :) Let Him be your constant guide and source of strength.
