BENEFITING: NEEMA HOUSE INC

Marilyn Wigen

THE STORY:

Just over a year ago my sweet niece posted on Facebook, photos from Neema House, an orphanage for abandoned or otherwise at-risk babies and toddlers, in Arusha, Tanzania to which her Bible School was sending their donations.

And a seed was planted.

Now that seed is flowering and my sis Katy, her daughter Theresa (that niece!) and I are going to volunteer for two weeks (23 October - 9 November) at Neema House! We will primarily be providing routine daily care for the babies, such as feeding, bathing and cuddling, but could also accompany the babies on doctor visits and/or help with other tasks. It is the only orphanage in the area devoted exclusively to babies and also has as its goal the reuniting of the babies with their families or finding stable, loving homes for adoption.

I am NOT asking for money for my trip, as I am completely funding that myself, but part of the volunteer process is to sponsor donations for Neema House, so I am asking you to prayerfully consider a gift to support Neema House and their care of these tiny and vulnerable babies. The founders and other administrators of Neema House receive no part of the donations, so all money raised goes to the babies and the local women working there.

You can learn more about Neema House, including their monthly budget/expenses, here: http://www.neemahousearusha.org/Neema_House_Arusha_2.php

I will never be able to thank you enough for your support, be it financial or prayers or both, but know that you will each be with me in Africa and will share in the cuddling of these precious babies! Asante na baraka...

DONATION: $475

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11. Blessings as you set out by His strength to be the hands and feet to these sweet babies! 2 years ago
