Yesterday, Simon came back from the village, where he had done a follow up visit with one of the families of the children. As he drove back into town, he saw some people standing in a group, one of them was one of our staff members. He stopped and asked her what had happened. He heard that a lady had just died, on the back of a motorbike. People tried to let her sit, but she was already gone. The motorbike had ran out of fuel, someone went for fuel, but was gone already for a while. So the body was just laying there.... at the side of the road.... Simon reversed the car and and talked with the sister of the lady, who was of course very upset. Simon ended up with carrying the lady in the back of his car and bringing the body, with the sister back to her village. When he arrived in the village, he heard that the lady who had passed away, had a small, one week old baby. The family was very shocked of what had happened. They wanted to give the baby to Simon, to take to Amecet, but he said that they would first think about that and organize. If they still wanted help, they could come to Amecet.
This morning the family came with the baby to Amecet.... A small beautiful baby boy, whose name is Emmanuel. The baby looks healthy and drinks well. It is so good to know, after a story like this, that God is with us....Emmanuel......
