A long overdue update

After a LONG, LONG time, we are finally able to get on here and update some things, along with some pictures we would like to share with you.  First, and foremost are pictures of the children.  These may not be the best pictures but they are what we have been able to download.  Names of the children are on each photo.  The kids are growing a lot.  And they are all now in school.  More on that after the pictures.


 A note... one of the pictures disappeared... hummm, well we do have it here!
With just a bit of prejudice, aren't these kids great?  Hopefully next time we post the camera used will do a better job.  We will be working on that.  

You will notice we now have 31 children.  One child was turned over to his parents.  But that is probably a good thing.  It is best if children can be with their real parents.  Our purpose is to help those who have no parents.

We have 4 house moms now.  Our staff also includes 2 women who do laundry 3 days a week, our cooking team of 2, our cleaning crew of 2, and 2 who are on security.  We have been growing.

The following photos are of our school, now completed.  Pastor John is now in charge of that.  We have 116 children in school this year.  There are 14 teachers.  The children are all in preschool and primary school.  The students include the orphans, workers children, and children from the area surrounding IDADEE.  The children also have Bible teaching on a daily basis.
You can see in the following photos the chapel filled with children.  That was the Festé D'été (Kids Fest).  With the children present and the workers, we had 865 persons there.  It was one week long and the whole group was fed a good meal each day.  

We hope you have enjoyed catching a glimpse of what is happening and how the children, along with IDADEE itself, are growing.  Please keep us in prayer, for wisdom, guidance from the Lord and perseverance.  We totally depend on the Lord for all things.  Thank you for being there with us in prayer and in finances.

An update for May


We thought we’d include some updated photos of all the children.  So, toward the end you will find those.  We have 32 really great kids and they are doing well.  

Veronique was able to attend a missions conference in Alabama.  Her main purpose was to share information on IDADEE.  She took photos of the orphanage, chapel, and school.  Plus she included photos of each of the children.  She shared what is going on and the future plans for the ministry. 

We have added a third floor to the orphanage, and that is where the children’s rooms are now.  It is cooler being up so high, and now we can dedicate more area to different aspects of the ministry.

The children attend school 5 days a week.  We have 6 teachers and the children seem to be doing well.  We also now have a nurse at IDADEE full time.  She lives at the orphanage.  This is an added blessing for everyone.  Prayerfully in the not too distant future we will have a doctor and a clinic at the compound.  Please keep that in prayer for us.  Not only the orphanage but the whole area needs the medical care it could provide.

We are in the process of building the primary school, not only for the IDADEE children but for children in the surrounding area.  That is another area where we need prayer. 

We ask that you continue to keep all aspects of our ministry in prayer.  The Lord will lead us where He wants us to go, but we need to be willing to listen.  So pray for all of the committee as well as the children and workers.  Thank you in advance for your prayers.

And now, on to the children:

We close asking you to continue to pray for IDADEE, the committee, the staff, the workers, and especially the children.   We covet your prayers to keep us doing what the Lord has called us to.  Each of the children are very special, to us, to the Lord and we pray, to you also.  Thank you, and blessings!!
