Bread, Vacations, and Babies

When God said that man shall not live by bread alone, He wasn't figuring we'd put rosemary and thyme in it!

The kids, my helper, Boloroo and I ate a whole loaf with hamburger stew for lunch today. It was fresh out of the oven, sliced with loads of butter...mmmmmm.

In other news, our little vacation has been postponed for a few days. Hetee had a few loose ends to tie up at church before we can leave. I'm holding my breath so that nothing else happens in the meantime to make us postpone even further. I actually cried, I was so disappointed. Today I keep thinking, I shouldn't even be here! Hopefully all will go well and we'll be able to go at the end of this week or beginning of the next.

Been saying that since March.

Now on to the baby part of my post.

To all my family members back in the States, who think I don't have a TV, no, I'm not pregnant.

Here's a picture of a young couple who, a few months ago were faced with an unplanned pregnancy and the pressure of family to abort . Thanks to our Little Hearts sponsors, we were able to help them make the right choice AND we provided groceries for the mother during the pregnancy.

Ankhaa, baby Egshiglen, and proud daddy, Babaa

These guys have a neat story. Soon after eloping, against her family's wishes, Ankhaa became pregnant. Her parents (not Christians) knew that Babaa came to our church so they asked if they could meet with us. They were distraught and adamant that their daughter have an abortion. Hetee pleaded with her father to allow them to have the baby. He told Ankhaa's dad that we would help provide food and prenatal care for his daughter so that she would not go hungry. The father, who had come to trust Hetee, finally agreed. We took Ankhaa in, under the Little Hearts Feeding Program and provided her with weekly groceries, vitamins and birth classes.

Egshiglen's birth was easy and very fast. Ankhaa and Babaa would like to say thank you for giving to make a difference in their little family!

After reading a recent post on Biblical Womanhood about a horrendous abortion case, I am uplifted and so thankful to hear about this little life that was saved. Your commitment to Life is so inspiring and encouraging to me. You are truly making a difference where you are and God will certainly bless you for this!

Your bread looks delicious! You've got to send me one of your recipes when you get a chance! I'm praying you get to take that trip soon.
