Why we're here..

Numan Orphange is located in Asela, Ethiopia south east of Addis Ababa. It is a 3 hour drive by car; beautiful and breath taking the entire way. If you have ever been there it is a place you will never forget. Numan orphanage serves it's community by being a refuge for children in the midst of extremely difficult transition. Children ranging from 0 months to 15 years call Numan their "home", some for a very brief moment and others for an extended period of time. It is a place especially close to my heart since it was a "home" for my son during his time of need.

Numan is experiencing their own transition and moving to a new facility. Since they are expanding and will most likely be meeting the needs of more families. They find themselves in need. This Blog was established to help Numan attain these items in order to aid them in becoming more efficient in helping families and children in their community while making life more comfortable for those who live there. There are currently 27 children at Numan. We hope that through fundraising and donations we will meet the needs of the children at Numan and for those caring for them.

I would also like to clarify that this blog is not a part of Children's Hope International. They are being kind in allowing us to use them as a vessel to serve Numan.

We finally have pictures!!

It has taken quite awhile, but we have some pictures of what has been purchased for Numan Orphanage. Those of you who made a financial donation should have received a letter in the mail with a brief update and some pictures. We hope that it was encouraging to your hearts to see the fruit of your wonderful generosity.

Director at new desk

"Before Numan has one room for infants, but now it has three. The cribs in the two rooms are new, all the mattresses, and the bedding materials. The nurse room is well organized with table, chair and refrigerator for medicines. Inside the director's room you find two new tables that are bought by the donation plus a shelf. The only thing that is left is the swing and that is under construction."

They also have new bunk beds with bedding, for the older children, that is not pictured here, but was pictured in the news letter. Once everything is complete CHI will send me a detailed receipt of the expenses which I will post for you to see.

We are so thankful to God for His mighty provision. This new facility is far better equipped and in much bettter condition than the old facility!! We pray that these children would not only know physical warmth and comfort, but come to know the comfort and fullness of His love and grace.

Thanks again and Grace to you!!!
