"And if you SPEND YOURSELVES on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness and your night will become like the noonday."

"The Lord will continually guide you. He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail."- Isaiah 58:10-11

Noah Leboo

Noah Leboo is one of the now 70 orphans in the Trans Mara Children's home.  After leaving last year and accepting the role of Health Provider for the children, we began making plans to visit Kenya again.  About two days after taking on this role, I started thinking about Noah and his congenital foot defect.  And then I couldn't stop thinking about it.  We began exploring a road that has ultimately led to his having surgery at Kijabe hospital here in Kenya.  

Today is day 4 post op and was our first opportunity to lay eyes on him.  He is doing awesome! He is pain free and smiling.  He is very excited that his foot is 'straight.'  A family from America gave up Christmas gifts this year to pay for his surgery and sent him a book.  He absolutely loves it!  His sponsor family sent letters from their son, Greg's, sixth grade class and he is looking forward to reading all the letters.  We met with his doctor who said he is healing wonderfully!
What a huge answer to many, many prayers!
