Making room for VeronicaRich Stigall
Last Tuesday, Pastor Peter Maseko told me about Veronica. At two months old, she’s a double orphan. (Both of her parents have passed.) Her elderly grandmother was struggling mightily to care for her and brought her to Pothawira asking Peter for help. Heartbreaking story, but with 103 children already living in Pothawira’s ten homes for 100 children (three infants sleeping with their house mommas), at some point Peter can no longer say yes. With heavy heart, he had to turn Veronica and her grandmother away.
This morning, I received this e-mail from Peter’s daughter, Eddah:
I believe all is well with you, your family, and God’s work in and through you. I wanted to give you a quick update of what’s happening at Pothawira. As dad informed you last time you talked on the phone (that he turned away a baby that came with her grandmother), the grandmother came again with the baby. She was having difficulties to find milk to feed her, and from how she was crying uncontrollably….Dad accepted her this time even though we have no room now for more kids, but her story is touching. She lost both parents (her mother just passed away recently). She’s 2 months old and her name is Veronica! She is doing well!
The (rest of the) kids are doing well, and working hard. The semester will be coming to an end close to end of this month.
Thank you, and may God meet your needs as you continue to obey and live in His Will.
Welcome, Veronica! We’re so happy to have you, and thank you, GO Family, for supporting Veronicas at Pothawiras all around the world!
