Easter in Holland and making friends....

This Blog is written from Holland. On Friday morning I arrived, together with my two daughters, Sarah and Helen in Goes, Holland. We had a good trip and we arrived in a sunny, warm Holland. They organized a beautiful house for us. A nice house with a big livingroom and several bedrooms. The children were so excited about the bath tube, but Helen asked a bit careful if there was warm water in Holland. We celebrated Easter together in our new house. Opposite our house, there is a playgarden and Helen has been targeting the children of the neighbours to play with. Several times she went outside, but the children left, not knowing what to say or do with Helen. But today it worked, she went again outside, and just stayed close to them and I saw, through our window, that they were playing together. Half an hour later, Helen came running in, very excited: mama, I have many friends now!!Tomorrow we are going to the Hospital in Rotterdam, Sarah and Helen together, for the checkup for the HIV and Sarah for her heart condition. Please pray for this visit, that we get some clear answers!

In Amecet is everything going well. But I got an email that there are quite some children sick. Malaria, but also some other infections. Please pray for Miranda, the Dutch nurse, who is taking a big part of the work on her shoulders, and for Simon and Josephine who have the leadership now.

Easter breakfast in our (temporary) house!

  1. Fijn om te lezen dat jullie goed aangekomen zijn! Bijzondere gedachte dat jullie nu zo dichtbij zijn ;-) Ik zal vandaag in m'n gedachten en gebeden bij jullie zijn in het ziekenhuis, maar ook denken aan Miranda, Simon, Josephine en de kinderen in Amecet.
