New Babies at Christmas

     We welcomed little Shem to the Baby Centre a few days ago. He is about one and a half years old. I loved taking his photo. When I first went to take his picture he gave me a little smile, but before I could snap the photo he turned it into this cute little pout. I tried to take multiple photos and got the same result every time. He is doing well.

     Here is a picture of little Mercy. She is 3 weeks old and weighs a little over 7 pounds.
This tiny guy is Victor. He is 4 weeks old and weighs a little over 7 pounds.
     Please pray for these and our other children as they wait and long for a forever family of their own.

     Over the last week, two of our precious girls have gone home to forever families. What are we doing? Praising the Lord for answered prayer. I know many of you pray for the children here at the AGC Baby Centre and for a family for them. God has answered our prayers. Thank you for remembering to lift the children up in prayer.

Happenings Galore

     The first week of September marked one year of my being in Kenya working at the Africa Gospel Church Baby Centre. So much has happened since I got here, but one of my favorite things is to see families adopt one of our sweet children.

This is a photo of Eve and her mom. Eve went home last week.
Above is a photo of Josiah and his new Mom and Dad. Josiah left today with his new family. We are praising the Lord for providing for our children to have forever families.
Above is a photo of Moses and his new Mom and Dad. He also went home with his family today.
It has been very busy around here these days, not only with the children who have gone home but God has also brought us other children to take care of.
Here is a photo of our newest arrival. His name is Harrison. He is about 6 months old and came weighing over 19 pounds.

Another child that God has entrusted to our care is Emmanuel Gideon. He is a little over one week old and he weighs about 6 pounds.
Please continue to pray for all of our children. Pray for Godly families who would step forward to raise one of the children as their own. Pray for those who already have a forever family.
Also, we have an update on baby Daniel. Thanks for praying for him. He returned to us over the weekend.

Busy Days

     These are special days here at the Baby Centre. We have had two children who became part of a forever family.

     The above picture is of Lewis and his new mom and dad. We are so thankful to these parents for coming and loving one of our babies as their own. They introduced themselves as the mom and dad of Lewis when they spoke to us as he was leaving. Thank God for providing this family for Lewis.

     What a sweet moment to see Emmanuel bonding with his new mom and dad. His parents were very sweet people. At one point Emmanuel had climbed out of his mom's lap to go play with a toy on the ground and one of the other children walked up to her and held their arms out to be held. She was so loving and picked up the other child and held him and loved on him until Emmanuel returned to be picked up. Thankful for God providing such wonderful parents to our kids.

     On top of children going home, we have also had some that arrived. Please pray for these new children as they adjust to being at the Baby Centre.

    Meet Joshua. He has been here for a few weeks and is settling in well. His smile lights up a room and he loves to copy people.

     Meet Phillip. He arrived here just a few days ago. He is about 1 week old and weighs around 7 pounds.

Pics, Pics and More Pics

     Last week we had a group here who did an amazing job on putting up a fence for our Wing B kids. It is a beautiful area for the kids to play in, and is now even more safe since so many of the kids are walking and crawling all over the place. We are so thankful for the teams' hard work on getting this project finished.

     The group also helped to repaint some of the children's outdoor playground equipment. They painted their slide, the swing sets and the monkey bars that were put in a few months ago.

     Below are some updated photos of some of our kids. The first two are of Naomi and Jonathan when they first arrived, followed by photos from just a couple of days ago. It is amazing to be able to see them grow from tiny infants into a brother and sister who follow each other around as they crawl and are trying to pull themselves up. Jonathan likes to crawl into the closet when I am working in there and try to walk off with clothes!




Angel being her usual, curious, happy self.
Ken, Thomas and Joseph having a blast in the pool together.

Moses loves to smile.

     Photographs are very hard to take here some days. The kids all love to have their photos taken, so they will often climb on or in front of the person you are trying to take a photo of. Or as you can see from Blessing's picture they also like to try to touch or hold the camera. They also do not sit still for very long so that makes for some slightly blurry pictures or part of their head being cut off in the photo.



Eva was the original target of the photograph, but Michael decided to pop in!

     Those are all of the photos I have for right now, but check back again soon for another set. Please remember to keep these children in your prayers. Pray for good health and development and for the parents we know God will provide for them. Please also pray for me as I work to help them in their development that God would show me how best to help each child. Please also pray as I prepare a VBS for the kids about the characteristics of God, that it would help them to know Him better. Thanks for following me on this journey!
