Pray for the young ones.

Please pray with us as we care for two orphans in our home. We have had a difficult weekend emotionally at the Bemm home. On Saturday we had a fourteen year old mother drop off her two children K(5 days old), and C(20 months old).  She does not feel she can care for them any longer. We are working with the authorities to ensure a safe place for the to go.  Then on Monday we brought another newborn baby home from the nursery, his mother abandoned him while they were in the maternity ward. We are thankful for another missionary family that offered to care for him.  Then if that was not enough emotionally.  Monday morning we had a nineteen year old girl come to our house.  She wants to give up her four year old daughter for adoption. Although we are grateful that we can be a safe home for these children we are deeply saddened by these events.  We are grateful for a loving God who has watched over these children thus far. Please pray for missionary partners in Nairobi who were waiting to care for another newborn girl. The baby was thrown into a pit latrine after being born.  The baby went to be with Jesus just a few days after she arrived on this earth.   Please pray with us for these young women who believe that they can no longer care for their young ones.  Please pray that they would know how much our loving God cares for them, they are just children themselves.

  1. Hi Chuck & Amy - Yes, we will! Thank you for keeping us updated on the needs at Tenwek and in your home. It's so tough to read about these mothers and their decisions. Your ACAC and Pennsylvania friends are praying. Please let us know if you need anything! Sawa? We love you...and please give all those kids a tight hug from us! Deb & John
