Well, everyone is settling in for the night. Man, taking care of babies, toddlers and older children takes a lot of energy and they never seem to run out of it. My friends Melina and Zuly Vasquez joined our team today and they were such a huge help. They loved on the babies first thing. There are over 30 of them that first thing in the morning need to be feed, changed and their 3 layers of clothes put on each one of them. Not sure why so many layers but we just do what we are told. They are so precious. I helped with changing the diapers and dressing then went from room to room taking sheets off the crib and washing all the mattresses with a clorox mixture!!! We want everything spic n span!! Each mattress that I cleaned I prayed for that child that slept there. And every baby I fed or changed or pushed on a swing, I asked the Lord to bless the child, to grow him or her up to know Him intimately.
From the babies I went to the kitchen again, the ladies asked Melina and I to wash and dry the dishes and put them all away. We had such a wonderful time of catching up on what has been going on in her life since she was with me in January. Then off to the toddlers, everyone was ready to eat and wanted to be fed at the same time. I will attach a picture of them while they are waiting to be fed. I am amazed that they wait so patiently.
Orphan's Heart is doing such a wonderful job of taking care of these children. I am getting full just watching all the food that they get. No, I am sure it is not too much but they are very good portions for these small bodies. I am sure that this is what the doctor has ordered!!!!
I also had a very sweet time with the staff this afternoon in Bible Study. The ladies are really opening up and shared how grateful they were for me taking the time to teach them the Scriptures. One lady said, We have groups come all the time but they don't all take time to spend with us in Bible Study time. I was very blessed that they are enjoying it and I know that the Lord will be faithful to bring forth fruit from what has been shared. It is during that time that I am most satisfied and working within my gifts. Thank you all again for your love support and encouragement.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock, if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come into him and sup with him and he with Me. Rev. 3:20
May hearts respond to His gentle tug on their hearts.
Love you, Cindy
