Prayer Request


While I travel during the next month, I will be talking to a number of parishes and individuals to thank them for their support in the past, but also to ask for more help. Our new flyer says:- £5 a MONTH (from as few as 400 supporters) CAN SUSTAIN ALL OUR CHILDREN AND THEIR HOME. This is a priority for us at the moment!! REQUEST SOME OF OUR NEW ATTRACTIVE FLYERS FOR DISPLAY AND HANDING OUT:- email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Please pray for me as I set off from Cornwall tomorrow.

A Walk Along the Beach

Last week  I was walking with my Father and his dogs along the Falmouth seafront when we met a woman who asked if we could pick up one of the dogs for her to stroke. She then explained that she had had a car accident and was suffering from severe whip lash which left her unable to bend. So typical of my father he said, “We know someone who can heal you”. Within a minute or so the lady was healed, bending to touch the ground, telling the passersby that she had been healed.

I Want to Help!! Laura's Blog


 

"I want to help!“

Like for most of the young people deciding to volunteer, this was the main reason for me to come to Tanzania four years ago. Of course I wanted to see another country and a different culture. And not yet knowing what kind of profession I would like to perform later on, I wanted to experience as much as possible. But the main reason was helping.

CHRISTMAS IN MBEYA


Mama Mia( Ludmila), aunties and volunteers all left for Mbeya about the 13th of December. Mbeya is the home town of Ester and her family, and this is the 3 time Esters parents have taken all our children for a holiday. It is about a 15-hour coach journey, so 20 seats were booked for the long-squashed drive to Mbeya.

Ester and I joined the party the day before Christmas by aeroplane and stayed until the New Year. We did a head count around Christmas day and we counted over 40 people! Ester’s family and relatives were in and out all day, and the children were perfectly happy at home with their Bibi and Babu-(Grandma and Grandpa)

VIGELEGELE


Before going to Mbeya, I went to a special Mass in our village, it was outside on the edge of a dusty street, in the home of one of our Parishioners.

At the Mass, there were 20 babies getting Baptized. I thought that was many! Until I went to a Mass the day after Christmas in Mbeya-There were near to 100 babies being baptized! It was an amazing experience of Joy. Here in Tanzania, when you are happy or excited you do – “Vigeligeli” There is no word for is in English- Perhaps it would be- make a loud sound of joy! The Ladies especially were making this loud sound of joy as their babies were being blessed and baptized- it was as if I could hear the angels rejoicing in Heaven!  Children are a special blessing from the Lord! What a joy to be among them!
