A new life for Kefbert :)
It has been 3 months since we've received a new kid here at New Day, and we're all getting antsy, but we have learned to trust God's timing when it comes to getting new children! We trust that He knows what is best as far as the time kids need to adjust, etc. That being said, we were SOOOO excited to get a new boy today! The same woman from an area near us had a big part in us getting Phillip, Christina, & Mweene. This woman called Blu on Friday to tell him that the grandmother that has been wanting to meet with us for months has finally returned to her village. Blu, Elizabeth, and Debbie set off on the orphan visit this morning and found that Kefbert, who was born February 11, 2009, is in fact a double orphan (both parents died in 2010 and 2011) and he was staying with his great-grandmother. After a good round of medical checkups, he arrived here!! When his great-grandmother asked him, "Do you want to go with the white people?" he replied, "Yes...but will they bite me?" :) When I put his new tennis shoes on him he said over and over again "Mine?? My shoes?? Mine??" :) Thank you Jesus for the opportunity to love Kefi.
