Spiritual, emotional, and physical growth. (3 week update)
Supporters and prospective supporters, here are the weekly reports from Magdalene for the last three weeks. I apologize for not getting the previous two up quicker. I talked to Bro. David Ballard who just got back from Cameroon and he said the children all look very good. Being a little partial, I have to say I was overjoyed when he told me the children were asking about me. I do look forward to going back. It is a special place and one that made a huge impact on me. Enjoy and keep praying for all involved.
