A Bittersweet Day

     We wanted to update you about baby Ruth.  She remains at Tenwek Hospital and is in stable but critical condition at the moment.  She has had cardiac arrest 3 times in the last 24 hours.  All that can be done medically has been done, unless the Lord intervenes we fear that she will not survive.  Please lift her up in prayer.
     This is a difficult time for all our staff.  All our thoughts are on Ruth, all our hearts are crying out to God on her behalf.
     We are thankful for the team at Tenwek that are working so diligently using the gifts God has given them to try to save Ruth.  We know God is in control and He already knows the outcome.

     Today was AGC Baby Centre day at Ngata AGC.  All the children were dedicated to the Lord and we gave a presentation and message.  Since Ruth was not there we had the Habib's daughter stand in for her and dedicated her.

     Some of our kids did some songs and memory verses as well.  They did a wonderful job.  Everyone loves seeing the kids and hearing them sing songs about Jesus.  Our caregivers did a great job practicing with them and teaching them the verses.

     We were also able to dedicate Hope today.  That was such a blessing.  It seems as though it has been many weeks since her heart surgery, but it has only been 4 weeks!  She continues to improve and is now eating baby food!

Hope being dedicated
     Dan gave the message today at church and spoke about the Baby Centre and how the local churches can get involved.  The response was tremendous and a large donation of gifts-in-kind and monetary donations were given at the end of the service.  It was very humbling for us to see how the church poured their heart out to the Baby Centre.
     We thank you all for your continued prayers and support.  We are very blessed to have such a wonderful group of champions behind us.
