The boy Logida

Written 05.08.2019 16:49 under Archive

I have such a desire to tell you about the happiest boy I know, named Longida of 9 years.

I He is a son of the triplet mother from the Masai region in Matale. Longida was born with very crooked legs and walked with a stick.
 
We had him moved to Arusha to the Plaster House, a hospital that takes care of disabled children. Longida had surgery in both knees and then the legs were put in a cast for some weeks. When the cast was removed the treatment was concluded with a period of training.
 

 
Now he can walk, run and even play football. He has just been visiting and I must admit that I cried tears of joy. Never have I seen a boy this happy. He smiled and wanted to give me a big hug as a sign of his gratitude.
 

 
Before he was hospitalized he was able to speak only his tribal language. After about three months at the Plaster House he now speaks a fluent Swahili and we are able to speak with him. He has gained weight because of the good food. At Plaster House there were children’s church and it was wonderful to hear the children singing and praising God.
 
A small girl by the name of Miriam was below one year of age when we met her and her mother for the first time. The mother was very frustrated because her little girl was born with a club foot (see photo).
 

 
This little girl was also admitted into the Plaster House where they take good care of her. She had surgery on both feet and at this moment the legs are in a cast. As this family is close to Plaster House they are able to have the girl at home during this process.
 

 
We are so pleased and grateful every time we are able to give disabled children a new future. It means so much to them. These children and their families literally experience the love and care of their father God.
 
Our daughter Mirjam got us in touch with Plaster House as she is friends with the American couple leading the work there.

 

Love Tabitha.

Nu har vi snart været hjemme i 2 mdr. og tripper for at komme i gang,

 med vores møderække rundt i landet.
Corona krisen har desværre gjort, at det ikke har været muligt at følge vores mødeaktiviteter rundt i kirker og foreninger.
 
Det er vi selvfølgelig meget kede af, derfor har vi valgt at bruge de muligheder der findes ved at bruge nettet.
Der er flere kirker, der har opfordret os til at lave et videoklip, for at fortælle om arbejdet i Tanzania.
Det gjorde vi og sendte det til de kirker, der er interesseret som så formidler det videre via nettet til deres medlemmer.
Vi har dermed også lyst til at sende den rundt til vores venner, som måske ikke har mulighed for at høre vores hilsen gennem kirkerne.
 
Videoklippet varer 25 min.  
 
Tabitha starter med at fortælle om vores tur hjem til Danmark.
 
Vi viser en kort filmklip om arbejdet, som fortæller om vores hverdag, både når vi er hjemme og de forskellige aktiviteter rundt i landet. Bl.a. er vi på sygebesøg hos en psykisk syg mor, som beder os hjælpe med at få sit barn ind på vores børnehjem.
 
Torkild slutter af med at fortælle om nogle af de behov, der er opstået på grund af Corona.
Vi er glade for de muligheder der findes på nettet til at holde kontakten til jer kære venner.
 
Her er link til videoen:
