Dear Friends and Family,
Featured Pictures: Noxolo – one special little girl!
We hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving! We are giving thanks for a little girl who lives in Mangwaneni, her name is Noxolo. She was born with a deformed right foot and is now almost 6 years old. She has learned to walk but as she continues to grow, it gets more and more difficult for her to get around.
A team that was visiting our CarePoint was moved by the Lord to try to help Noxolo. They have gone back to the United States and we are now in the process of determining what can be done for her here in Swaziland, or if necessary in South Africa.
The first step is prayer. Next we will be requiring written consent from Noxolo’s mother to proceed with this process. If she gives us written consent, we will be taking her to the Mbabane Government Hospital to meet with one of the country’s surgeons to see what, if anything, can be done for her here in Swaziland. We will let you know the results. In the meantime please pray that all goes well with Noxolo.
We’ve attached three pictures of this spunky little girl. She knows very little English, but will talk your ear off in Siswati. All you have to do is respond with “yebo” which means yes, and she will continue her conversation!
If the Lord speaks to you in any way to help us with this, please let us know.
May the Lord Bless you,
Randy, Karen and Shelly
