Torkild og jeg har netop været ude hos den ekstrem fattige familie med 2 køjesenge  Dear faithful friends,
 
Torkild and I have just been out to visit the extremely poor family with 2 bunk beds 4 madrasser, 4 tæpper, sengelinned, håndklæder, tøj til alle børnene. De tre af børnene, der går i skole fik ligeledes skoleuniformer, sko og skoletasker.
 

Familien vidste ikke, at de ville få senge m.m., så det blev en kæmpe overraskelse. Jeg har aldrig set nogle gøre så store øjne, da de så hvad vi kom med. Børnene blomstrede op, samt de hoppede og dansede af glæde. Først blev de gamle senge båret ud og de nye sat ind. Moderen prøvede straks en af sengene og man kunne tydeligt se, hvordan hun nød det. Børnene ventede bare efter at de også måtte prøve de nye senge. De har aldrig nogensinde prøvet at ligge på en rigtig madras.       Som sagt fik de tre af børnene deres nye skoleuniformer, samt sko. En af drengenes sko var desværre alt for store, så dem tog vi med ind til byen for at få dem byttet. Han blev virkelig ked af det og begyndte at græde, for han troede ikke at han ville få andre sko. (han gik rundt i faderens store udslidte gummistøvler).   De små piger fik hjemmestrikkede bamser og de jublede af glæde og ville straks have bamsen på ryggen, som de gør i Afrika ved deres babyer. Så sødt at se den store glæde det bragte med bamserne.   Da det har regnet, havde den fattige familie været i marken og sået majs og sat søde kartofler. Ja, så må vi bede om, at der bliver ved at komme lidt regn, så der bliver en høst.       Det blev en helt fantastisk god formiddag, hvor vi alle fik en oplevelse for livet. Deres glæde over at få disse ting kan ikke beskrives med ord.   Vi skal hilse så kærligt fra forældrene og sige tusind tak for hvad I har gjort for dem. Som de sagde, vi forstår slet ikke at nogen som vi ikke kender, har vist os så stor en kærlighed. Vi beder Gud om at Han må velsigne jer, for jeres store omsorg. Så tag imod deres hilsen, som vi oplevede, kom fra hjertet.     Vi vil også gerne fra dybet af vores hjerte sige jer tusind tak for jeres støtte, når vi skriver om et behov.   Jeg vedhæfter nogle billeder og tror at de siger mere end mange ord.

    Kærlig hilsen og fra Mirjam, Torkild og Tabitha.4 mattresses, 4 blankets, bed sheets, towels and clothes for the children. The three children that are attending school also got school uniforms, shoes and backpacks.  

The Family didn´t know that they were getting beds etc, so it became a huge surprise. I have never seen anyone be so excited before when we came with the beds. The children were shining and were jumping up and down with joy. First the old beds were carried out and the new ones put in. The mother right away tried one of the beds and it was so obvious to see that she enjoyed it. The children were waiting impatiently for their turn to try the new beds. They have never even tried to sleep on a real mattress.       As mentioned, the three children got their new school uniforms and shoes. One of the boy’s shoes were unfortunately way too big for him, so we took them back to take to town to exchange. He got so upset and started to cry as he thought he wouldn´t be getting any shoes. (he was walking around in his father’s big old worn out gumboots).   The little girls got home knitted teddy bears and they were so excited and full of joy over these teddy bears and straight away wanted to carry them on their backs like they do here in Africa with their babies. So sweet to see the big joy this brought with the teddy bears.   It has rained so the poor family had been in the field and planted maize and sweet potatoes. So, we must pray that they will get more rain and it will be a good harvest.       It became a fantastic morning where all of us got an experience for life. Their joy over getting these things cannot be described with words.   We were to greet you so lovingly from the parents and say thank you so much for all you have done for them. As they said, we don´t understand that someone we don´t even know has shown us such great love. We pray that God will bless you and your great kindness. So please take this greeting that we experienced and came straight from their hearts.     Personally, we would also like to say thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for your support when we write about urgent needs.

  I have attached some pictures; they say more than words.     With Love Mirjam, Tabitha and Torkild. [post_title] => Opdatering-Fattig familieUpdate-Poor family.
