Christmas comes a little late!

Global church in Nusa Dua (Bali) through their fund raising ministry 'IndonesiaAid' led by Doug and Kimberley Bennett, decided to do a fund raiser for three projects in Bali. They approached us at Kingdom Kids Home and asked if we had any projects in mind that needed financial assistance. Our first major project is the completion of the retaining walls which is necessary before any building construction can commence. So we told them our plans and roughly how much we needed.

To cut a long story short, we received enough to complete all of the retaining walls, repair the leaking toilets and wash rooms, and to begin the foundations of the first building. We were staggered when they presented us with a cheque for US$6,500 (Rp85.600.000).

What a difference a day makes, well... maybe a week

Novi and Delsi are settling in to their new surroundings and feeling the love of Kingdom Kids Home. Both of them actually have cheeky little natures, I think they are going to be great fun and a blessing for the other kids as well.

Kadek and Novi

Novi is 2½ and just started walking. She is the same height but much thinner than Adeya who is 14 months. She still has a lot of sores on her head but they are starting to clear up and with good nutrition she will start to grow and fill out.

Delsi is 4 years old and she is also tiny even compared to normal Indonesian kids. She can't speak Bahasa Indonesia yet
but it won't take long for her to start picking it up. When she first arrived she would do her business on the bedroom floor but she is almost toilet trained now. Having come from a place where there are no toilets it was the normal thing to do. (I guess she won't want to see this post when she turns 21)!

A New Years Day Gift

On January 1st 2017 we received another two little girls from Sumba. You would already be familiar with one of them from a previous post. Their names are Nofrentiana and Delsiana aged 2½ and 4. They are both malnourished and both quite sick, the youngest still cant walk properly. Probably 90% of their diet has been Ubi, which is a cassava like root vegetable so we have started them on a good diet that includes a diluted milk mix as their little systems can't handle full strength milk yet. It's only been a few days but already we are seeing major improvement.

They were obviously very apprehensive when they arrived but already are starting to smile as they appreciate the good food and the love that is being lavished on them. Please pray for the future of these precious little bundles.

Sorry that these aren't great shots of them but I didn't want to stuff a camera in their face at this early stage, nevertheless I am sure you can see them clearly enough.

The two older girls in the photo's are both from the same village in Sumba as the little ones.
