What's Been Happening

I figured it would be good to give you all an update on what has been going on around here. I know a lot of you have been praying, and for that we are very grateful!!

The twins, Loma and Achen are doing much better. Loma is improving each day and I took him to the clinic today and he has gained about 2 pounds. I was excited but also realize he has a long way to go. I have been trying to feed him as much as he can eat and his appetite is still not up to his sister's, but I know it will get there. His lungs are better but he still has to continue his medicine in hopes that they will be completely clear of any wheezing. He has a sore on his head from the IV treatment, but it is beginning to improve too.

This picture is of Maria Nagwe which is Nakolong's mom. This picture is very special to me. If you are not familiar with the story of Naklong you can look in my archives. Nakolong was a baby we took in to help but she died because she had Trisomy 18. Nagwe has seen several clinical officers here and has been diagnosed with many things but none of the treatment has shown any improvement. We have been trying to get to the bottom of her problems and thought it best for her to go to the local hospital, which is 2 hours away, so we sent her on a bus. She left on Friday and we eagerly await her arrival to see what they found out. It has been such a blessing having her around, and getting to know her better.

Lucia is going to have her baby any day now, so keep her in your prayers. Thanks to you all!
