Well first day back at school and we handed out the International Aid Trust gift boxes, the children were ecstatic. One young 14 year old who recently had to leave school because she was about to have her baby, ‘pictured with baby’ we gave her a box, she was so sad she was no longer at school. Unfortunately it is common that children are taken advantage of.
It was heart rendering to see them enjoy such simple gifts.
Well I thought it would be great to download some more pics of the shoe box blessing.
Again thank you for your kind donations and to ‘International Aid Trust’ for the great support and containers, remember we have 564 children many lost parents to Ebola, we have malaria, typhoid and yellow fever to contend with as well, however we are grateful for your contributions and love.

Mobendu village children from one of International Aid Trust village schools outreach, dinner is a very exciting time for them, they all eat together when all have their plate. Their eyes firmly fixed on the food pots, I made the error of putting my plate down to help a colleague, a little three year old was licking my very empty plate on my return, a practical lesson had!
A wonderful privilege to serve them,

The children are very eager to say hello, the ladies carry astonishing loads around on their heads, even little children fetch two gallons of water from the well daily, it is seen as normal?

“Well we were blessed today to the delight of the children, Pastor Michael and myself saw a man on a motorbike with this lovely fish across his seat. We managed to buy it through negotiation, this fish will feed a multitude as a stew, Pastor Michaels wife Alice is a wee bit of an expert in the culinary arts. I am looking forward to it myself! The Lord has blessed us mightily. Keep us in your prayers.”
