Amunweek: 45 children and 7 puppies

 YES!!! The Amunweek 2016 has started!! All day long yesterday, children arrived, from the villages around. The first one came at 7.30 in the morning and that went on until 6 pm in the evening. The older children, excited, to be here and to see old friends again, the young ones, a bit scared, for most of them it was several years ago that they were living here, so they forgot.. This morning we had a kind of service in the tent, which we hired for this week. We sang and praised God and we listened to Steven, who spoke about the theme:" I will be with you" from Isaiah 43:2. It is such an encouraging to know that God is with us, where ever we are and whatever is happening in our life. 
Of course are the meals very important in our Amunweek. This is the lunch on the veranda at Amecet home. Everybody enjoyed the meal and they ate well. 
 Because the real programme starts tomorrow, the children had more free time, they played with the Lego and dolls and cars,
 There were three games of Uno going on, so you can imagine how much noise there was in Amecet. At 4 pm. they all left back to Amun home and there were games organized outside in the garden.
In all this busyness, one of our dogs gave birth to 7 puppies!!! So there had to be a separate place organized for the mother and the little ones! I hope they will all survive.....
But you have an idea what is going on, I will write some more about the Amun week and the children... It is so encouraging to see them all back, this were children who were so very sick, some of them you were even scared they would not make it! And here they are, all healthy and happy. God has done great things......
