Update on Telismane and the boys

jan-20-2009-a-127

Telismane has been sick for over a week now.  She was very ill on Tuesday morning and could hardly walk.  We put her on IV fluids right away.  She was doing much better by the end of the day.  She was back to selling stuff for her small business the next day!   Her small business is going well.  She has been selling each Tuesday in the market as well as the other weekdays out in front of the clinic.  She controls everything really well.  She wants to sell everything that she bought the first time so that she can see how much she is going to make for her and the boys.  She also went up to her home village this weekend to purchase three goats.  She will raise them for awhile and then sell them and repurchase more.  She is a great business lady.  She knows her stuff and is serious about it.  She also is very thankful and is a real blessing to me.  I love to help people that are in need.  But I love it when I can also become friends with them.  Her boys are some of the cutest kids around. They bring such joy to my heart each time I see them. 

They started school after the Christmas and New Year’s break.  Here they are in their uniforms.

Please continue to pray for them!  They miss their dad at times and need our support.

    So glad Telismane is doing well. Sorry she was sick but sounds like she is quite the business woman. The boys are adorable and I’m sure they miss their dad terribly. Give them all my love and tell Telismane I do pray for her often. I praise God for the work He is doing in this family.
