Visiting Children in Simpani
We have been visiting children in Simpani. I have been sick for the last two days with sore throat etc so Ed has filled in for me and has done a good job. Hopefully tomorrow I will be back in action. I think the terrible journey and mayhem at the airport took its toll. We have unfortunately lost about three children due to them moving, marriage breakup and family problems. I know this is disappointing to sponsors and for us too but in very poor countries there is often a lack of stability. People move to where they can find work or sometimes back to mountain villages. This is beyond our control and there are no guarantees. We have a high success rate but nothing is one hundred percent.
