The hut we had build in front of our home is finished!! Everybody enjoys it, it is cool and there is shade and we are closer to the swing, slide and other outside play toys, to keep an eye on the children. We sit not anymore on the veranda, but we use the hut, to feed the baby's, to have the snack or porridge, to sit and play. We all like it a lot!
For a long time we only had two older children, Abraham (12) and Jackson (2,5), the rest were all bay's. Now we have many more toddlers, who are crawling everywhere and climbing on things where you should not climb on. There is a very different atmosphere now. They are playing on the Merry go round and the swings, they color and do games. I have to be very careful when I step in the car, now the children feel more at home, they are all over the compound.
Yesterday there came a big truck in the compound, carrying bricks, then one with sand and small stones...That was nice, the children were directly on top of the sand (after the truck was gone of course :) !)
We are going to build a wall around Amecet compound. We did it a year ago around Amun, but we are now starting with Amecet. It is very easy to climb over the chain link fence, we have now, we have experiences with this... we want to be more safe and also keep the snakes out of the compound when there is a wall. We do not have the money yet, but we do have enough for the back, which is the worse. we hope to do the rest later. If anyone of you, wants to help us with this project, we will be very grateful. It cost around 25 Euro/US Dollar per meter and we need 243.8 meter wall. you can find our Bank details on our Blog home page.
I want to ask you prayer for Esther. She is 9 years old and is not doing so well. She is not gaining, we have been going to the doctor to check her if she has TB, but that is not the case. She is sad and quiet, if you ask her if she misses her family, she says no, she doesn't want to go home. We hope that the ARV's will start helping her. She often comes into the office, where I am working and I find her sitting next to me. Please pray for her, for her health, but also for her emotions......
