There are some truly exciting things happening in our school. Since March we have been trying to get U.S. based vitamin companies to donate vitamins for the children in our school. These businesses have a donation program for cases like these, however, the number of our children (100) is too small for them. When we reach 1,000, they will be happy to assist us. Good promise for the future. 🙂
That being said, we don’t like to give up too easily! So we began to pray, pray, and pray some more. Then a miracle happened. Jayson, the sales representative in the Philippines who we buy textbooks from, came one day to collect money for some of our older accounts. When he saw our children, he promised to provide some vitamins. Believe it or not, last week he really brought us 44 bottles of vitamins plus 20 capsules of supplements for teachers! As they couldn’t be given to all the children, we distributed them to the most needy ones.
We were told, even though no promises were made, that if the vitamins become available, we may receive even more in the future. God is able to provide in unexpected ways.
