First I must tell you that Bulawayo has been experiencing a heatwave over the past ten days with temperatures in the low 40's. It's been too terrible. I have an airconditioner in my bedroom and it is not unusual to wake up in the monring to find all four girls sleeping in my room.
I spent this morning at Willow Park. It is always so good to spend time with the kids. Everytime I am there I come away praying that the Lord would make it possible for us to buy Hotel Rio as soon as possible. I just don't have the time to get out to Willow Park...it's just too far and yet I love being with the kids.
Awakiwe is back in town with us for a little while. She came out of hospital very thin and needs a bit of fattening up. She is such a great little girl who always has a huge smile on face.
All our children are doing so much better. Please keep praying for them. Because so many are HIV positive they easily catch whatever is going around and tend to take longer than the average child to get over it.
I recently had the amazing privilege of baptising 9 of our girls in the swimming pool at the Sandra Jones Children's Village. It was very special for me. I have seen these girls come to us as broken hurting children and I have watched God take the brokenness and turned it into something beautiful.

We had to say good-bye to Sera recently. Whilst it was really hard to see her go, she has gone to a lovely Christian family and is very happy...and that's what it's all about...finding loving families to love and care for our children.
Also gone is my darling little Chanelle. I was so brokenhearted when she left and am really missing her. However she did go to her Grandparents who seemed to be lovely people.
