NEW PROJECT!!

NEW PROJECT!!
Just last week we closed a deal with a few of our neighbours and bought 2 plots of land reaching 2 acres in all. It's just a few minutes walk from our home. Even before we came to buy our original land here where we live now, we had a desire not only to build an orphanage, but also a school. It was hard to see then how any of this could be possible, but God has shown us that these are His ideas, and He is our builder and provider. SO we are taking a new step of Faith! Our plan is to start teaching January 2018!
We will be teaching our own children there and also children from the village. It will be a small school from Nursery up to Primary each year group just one class. The children are excitedly praying each day with us!
Please join us in prayer!

A VISIT WITH A PURPOSE!

A VISIT WITH A PURPOSE!
Bupe wrote a few months ago to ask if she could visit when she planned to come to Tanzania to visit her family here in September.
She has wonderful story! ( Which I will ask her to write herself!) Until then - In short - Her Grand father was an orphan who was cared for by a couple from Scotland. She searched the website for a project that she as President of the Students Unions for the Universities of Liverpool may like to support. She and her daughter Sarah, only six years, and the Vise President of the Student Union Alicia only came for a few hours with Lea, Bupe's sister who lives here in Tanzania. Sarah was so happy to be with the children that she was really upset to go, but I don't think it was the last time they will be here. Bupe, we look forward to hearing from you yourself!
Thank you for your heart for Tanzania and the children of Tanzania.

OUR FIRST "GATHERED"BIRTHDAY PARTY

OUR FIRST "GATHERED"BIRTHDAY PARTY
Meet another very special lady. Her name is Bonita. In August she came with soda, and birthday cake to enhance our birthday party for Bianca's 2nd, and Emmanuel's 6th, Shangwe's 5th, Sabina's 6th Patrick's 6th, and Advent's 8th. It was such a special time. Standing next to Bonita in the middle picture is our Parish Priest who also made the children feel special by just taking the time to visit as he often does.

SIAN AND MOLLY FROM ENGLAND- 2ND VISIT FOR SIAN AND SHE SAYS-

SIAN AND MOLLY FROM ENGLAND- 2ND VISIT FOR SIAN AND SHE SAYS-
Having been to Karibu Nyumbani for three weeks last year as part of a small group of 6 young people and two adult group leaders I couldn’t wait to return and it took me just under a year to come back to this incredible place. This year I stayed for just over a month bringing a new friend with me (Molly) who couldn’t wait to come out and share in the experience after my non-stop talking about Karibu Nyumbani throughout the past year. It truly is an amazing place which really does feel like a second home. The immediate feeling of being part of one big family you experience from the moment you arrive is truly heartwarming. It was amazing to see how the children have grown and changed over the past year and was particularly lovely to see the Neema’s huge development. Karibu Nyumabni is truly a place filled with love and thanks for all that they have and a place I will always keep close to my heart.

Sian and Molly, thank you so much for all you brought to our Home!

SAD GOODBYES ):

SAD GOODBYES ):
At the end of July, we were sorry to say good bye to our wonderful “Caritas Volunteers” Lina and Tabea. They both gave of themselves completely in very different ways. Lina was like Florian’s “Aunty” for at least half of her ten months with us. I could not have gone away to England without her help. She was also a great help with accounts in the office. Her greatest gift was singing almost every day, and leading the children in worship. They learned so many English songs.
Tabea, threw herself into anything she could see that needed doing. Mostly with the children. Daily in the class room being teacher, and also a close friend to the Aunties helping in the kitchen, washing etc. She was truly a friend to all!
We miss them very much and are looking forward to the next 2 “Caritas Volunteers” 2 boys!!

BABY FRANCIS -NEWS

While I was in England Ludmila took Baby Francis to be tested for HIV and he was found to be positive. Sadly he needed to be moved to a hospital in Dodoma.
It was a big shock for everyone especially Ludmila who mothered him for 6 weeks. The children continue to pray with us for his healing.
