We were so shocked, we could not believe it, we did not expect this, we worried about Eunice and of course we knew that also Jesse and Evalyn were still very vulnerable, but to die, no that was too much. I brought the two doctors back to Soroti hospital and came back to Amecet. Tears were flowing, we had invested so much already in this little boy, he had gained so much... he came in as a 780 gram little baby and now he died as a 1170 gram cute little boy. We didn't understand, what had happened? We felt so sad, we had so much hope for this little fellow, we had been so happy when he reached the 1 kg weight. Suddenly everything had changed.
We had tell the other children, they wanted to come in and see Jesse and say goodbye to him. And here you see some of them sitting with the little Jesse, he was laying on the little table and they just touch him and talk to him. Helen told me that Jesse is now with Jesus and that it was only his body that was there, he was now okay and he had no more pain. And that it just how it is!!!! I learn from the simplicity of the children, it comforts me and helps me to see it like they do.
And we?? We were busy with Eunice, as you can see on the picture above, she has still a long way to go and she still needs many prayers. Please pray for her, that she will live, please pray also for us, the staff, it was a emotional day.
Baby Jesse was de afgelopen dagen in onze gebeden. Wat verdrietig dat hij zo stilletjes jullie heeft verlaten.ReplyDelete
Jullie allen sterkte toegewenst! En veel kracht en liefde voor het mooie werk dat je doet!
Heel veel sterkte en kracht toegewenst voor deze tijd en de toekomst. We bidden voor amecet. Onze hoop en gedachten zijn soms zo anders als de onbegrijpelijke wegen van de Heere. Sterkte allemaal,ReplyDelete
