Friends of Ebenezer

 Below is a short message from Ebenezer a wonderful Ministry giving Hope and a future to God’s unwanted Children .

Australian Friends of mine Lenore and her husband Dr Richard Burton after being called by the Lord in 2005 to be friends of Ebenezer have worked sacrificially without material reward although with lots of heart rewards to raise funds for this Orphanage, they do many things to raise the money needed  and it is been through the support of them and other caring people that over 405 Orphaned Children are being lovingly provided for and have a protective and Loving home as well as Parents and Grandparents being helped to be able to care for and keep their children with them .

 You can never tell what a day or week may bring forth in Ebenezer and of all the surprises and challenges we’ve had, last week topped the list……….………!!!

Last Thursday seemed a very normal day and we were trying to get through the challenges for the day when there was a frantic call from the Social Welfare Dept. early afternoon. A mother had given birth in a small clinic in Sinkobo about 22 km from Livingstone at 1.00 a.m. and had died an hour later.

 The father and his relatives were poor Villagers and could not dream of raising the baby on Formula Milk, they didn’t have money even for the first tin of milk and so the clinic got in touch with the Welfare Department and asked if the baby could be looked after by an Orphanage and after a positive answer by us, the hungry little one was brought in.

 I named her Blessing and she spent her first night on earth in Ebenezer!!! In Africa it is considered unfortunate to lose a Parent and perhaps that may explain why Orphans are being mistreated so much. Orphan children are very often verbally abused by relatives for this very reason and we have so many hurt and miserable children in our school on account of this.

 Blessing weighed 2,960 kg at birth and her mother perhaps needed a qualified doctor to attend to her rather than a village midwife.  Out of a 10,000 births Zambia loses at least 700 mothers, and that is a lot of maternal deaths and lot of babies who are very vulnerable!!! Thank God for your support for this very precious work that helps little angels like Blessing to have hope and a future!

    What a story! What a blessing for you to be supporting such valuable, sacrificial work for the Lord. This is EXACTLY what I was talking about. I pray that God will continue to knock down walls that get in their way so they can continue to do this valuable, needed work.
