William pooped and Full House in Amun!

I start with exciting news about William, he has pooped a little on his own!!He also stopped vomiting stools! We are very happy with that. We still don't feed him, he still gets fluids via the IV line, but there is progress! Dr. Florence came today to Amecet to see him and she was also content with the progress. It is so good that the pediatrician wants to come to our house to see this little sick boy. Thank you for your prayers for the little man.
We got today many people arriving in Amecet, I have written in the past about Ang Tulay programme. It is a programme developed in the Philippines, in English it is called "the Bridge" and it helps, in several steps, to handle pain, lost and rejection on a better, a Godly way. We have done the first week in 2010, we had invited all our bigger children, who have been in Amecet in the past, to be part of this week. All our children have been experiencing pain and rejection, most of them are orphans, they lost their parents. It was a success. There is a second week, which is more training to become a leader, to help others, I went through it myself in June 2013, it was really good. Today we started a very special week, for youth leaders. And we invited 13 of our older children, most of them are in secondary school, they all have been with us in Amecet and later in Amun home, together with 11 youth, coming from Jinja. They will all go through a week of learning together, learning about themselves and how Jesus sees them. Amun is Full House this week, they just fit  and we will use our pre-school for the training sessions. 
Our veranda was also full when they all  came to eat supper. It was great to see our Amecet children again. And they were happy to see each other. They all do well and their health is good.
                                                    And of course, after eating we sing!!!
