Are you willing to do some water walking?

 Matthew 14:29-31 (NIV)

 29“Come,” he said.

  Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.

 30But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

 31Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”

32And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down.

 33Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”


 Water walking to me means: 



 Stepping out—-having faith to believe that God is with you—-will NEVER EVER let you down—-will take you through it, not around it, through it—and you will become a better person and christain afterwards. 

I need a family that is willing to step out, have the faith that it is going to work, and trust God that it is HIS will for them to adopt this little guy.


 NAME:Ronel Dieudonne

Estimated age: (guessing around 7 or 8 )

Date of arrival: August 2006

weight at arrival: 27 pounds

current weight:52 pounds


 Ronel was brought to the Rescue Center by an older sister. She said that his mother and father had both died in the last year. She was trying to take care of the family and Ronel had become sick. She asked us if we could help her. We accepted him into the Rescue Center. We have not heard from anyone in his family since.

 Ronel was severely malnourished and soon began to have hallucinations. He seemed to be going crazy! We sent him to get many test and labs done. He had syphilis. We can only guess that he picked this up from his mother. Within a week after being treated for this he began to turn around for the good. He began gaining weight and was a happy child.

 Ronel is currently in doing great. He has started school and is rapidly advancing. He has a great appetite and eats all the time. We often find food his had hidden under his bed or pillow, so he can have a midnight snack. 🙂 He is a very happy, loving child that helps those younger than him to eat, and finds toy for all the kids to play with.

I wrote this last August about Ronel.  Ronel is my special buddy,  he has been through a lot just since I have know him.  He needs and desirves a family.  He needs more love than I can give him.    We are still trying to find a loving family for this sweet boy.  The RC is not a place to raise him.  He needs a family that he can attach himself to and a family that will show him lots of love. 

If you have any question or want some more info on Ronel, PLEASE write me at If you cannot adopt him will you join me in prayer that we can find a family for him.Soer they are…..I know that God can do BIG things for all these kids.  I have faith that someone is going to be interested in them. Please contact me if you are.  Notice they are all boys, girls are II

IF you

  1. Licia,
    I’m praying for Ronel. Praying for him to find a mommy and daddy to love him so much!

    I remember when I first saw Amos on your blog in Sept. My heart jumped out to him and here we are 9 months later. I’m praying for someone to be having those same feelings tonight as they look into Ronel’s eyes. I could NOT sleep that night and I pray that God is moving someone else tonight as they read this.
