This blind Association consists of 80 people that receive food every week. Two to three kilos of corn flour and three pieces of bread. As we continue to find donations we hope to add the 83 people that are waiting to get on the list, and Lord willing, I would love to give them something with nutrients.
I've heard that each city within our provence has their own blind association (totaling 450 blind), so in the near future, I plan on getting out and meeting each of the leaders of the other associations and find out their conditions.
I plan on searching for help buying more canes and raising money to take care of the least of these.
On another note, I'd like to pass on a testamony from Rita, the widow who's house we are trying to help build.
So the other day she was looking for a ride home, taxi busses or motorcycles are her usual way home. On this particular day, the motorcyclist wanted a dollar and she was trying to talk him down to eighty cents. She said a foreigner was near-by and told Rita she would give her a ride to where she needed to go. So Rita went with her. Later that day she saw a child sleeping in the dirt, where others were trying to walk, and Rita asked what he was doing, all he said was that he was hungry. So she took him and found him a humble meal for a dollar.
Rita said, that God gave her a free ride home so that she would have the dollar to buy this child a meal.
What a beautiful moment! I'm reminded of the passage in Luke 21: 1-4
"While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box. Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins. I tell you the truth, Jesus said, "this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them. For they have given a tiny part of thier surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given eveything she has."
