Amy Washington’s Visit

Amy speaking at Cedar Branch Church


Well,  it came and went too quickly!  Amy Washington, her sweet little Amina, Amy’s Dad – John Washington, and her sister – Deanna, arrived shortly before church started Sunday night and left again Monday morning.  How thankful I am that they were willing to make the nine hour drive from Georgia to spend time with us.

Amy shared her heart and told us about Kupendwa Ministries and the work God is doing in Jinga, Uganda. She shared how God took her to Uganda … how God delivered sweet little Amina into her hands … how she now has six little ones she calls her own … how she started Kupendwa Ministries and the young women and babies that she cares for and shares Jesus with.

The story of Stella  and baby Hope captivated us all.  Stella was a young woman who thought that God hated her … a young woman sure that she had done too many bad things to be forgiven … a young woman who now knows Jesus and rejoices in the great love He has for her!   Amy’s story of the birth of Stella’s baby — who she named Hope – was an amazing example of how God still works MIRACLES today!

Amy’s little Amina is a miracle as well.  She was abandoned … left to die … malnourished and sick — but God had a plan.  He arranged for Amy to rescue Amina and she is a beautiful, healthy little four year old today!

“I had been many different places and worked with many different people, but I never experienced such a deep love for a place and people before. Never had I so strongly felt God’s peace and call to leave my home and make a lifetime commitment somewhere. I had never felt so passionate about loving and helping a people before. domain whois information . The babies and children of Uganda truly stole my heart.”  ~ Amy Washington

Check out  the link to Amy’s website where you can read all about Amy and the ministry that God has entrusted her with.  There is also  a short five minute video  that will give you a sweet glimpse into Amy’s heart . . . I hope you will stop and watch.!about/cfyq

We are delighted that four year old Amina is coming with Amy!    Amina means “Amen” in the local language, and she truly is the “Amen” of Amy’s life.  Amy currently has legal guardanship of Amina and we are trusting God for the day when Amina’s adoption is final.  In the words of Amy’s Mom, Donna Washington –

“Just the fact that this little 4-yr-old girl is alive is a miracle.  But she represents so much more! The story is long . . . and some of you know it . . .  but to us she represents redemption, reconciliation, and God’s ongoing faithfulness to His children. We give Him all the glory!

2013 03 13 water in matlakeng 80283-1363191115-5Having easy access to clean water is taken for granted every day here in America.

Water is definitely not taken for granted in Matlakeng Village – Lesotho, Africa.  The  “community” pump has been broken for a good while and the people were having to cart water daily up the mountain to their homes.  I was excited to hear today that the pump has been fixed and good clean water is running freely again!

Wim van Rensburg and the people of Matlakeng Village send out a a big “Thank You” to those who helped restore water to the village.

I thank you also.  Your contributions to Susan’s Kids enable us to send help where it is needed.  Before you go to bed tonight, thank God for being able to turn on the faucet and have good clean water whenever you want.

Hylien Makes Learning Fun!

I get so excited when Wim and Hylien post pictures of the children! It blesses me so much to see the joy on their little faces. Hylien is an EXCELLENT teacher and I thank God for her.  She is able to love each and every child individually in the most perfect way because she sees each and every child through the eyes of Jesus.  Because of her great love for these children,God blessed her  with wisdom and discernment and energy and compassion,  so that she could teach them and love them and bring laughter into their lives. God  needed a willing vessel and Hylien was obedient to His call.

Thank you Hylilen!
