I received this e-mail last night from Sister Donna:
Dear Jamie, what a perfectly beautiful family! I have never heard of the elimination communication. Lets try!
The water filters are a wonderful Work of God in motion! God Bless it and may it come to be!
The cloth diapers are in Addis Ababa at the embassy now. I heard from Col. Kirk, and it was funny; he was wondering who had ordered all the cloth diapers…then I wrote to him about them so he got it. They will probably come via the Hawassa team to me. There is a new Captin heading up the bat. I have made contact with him, so things are in progress.
If you can find Primaquine, please send it, it is the follow up to the medicine I took and will stop the malaria from repeating.
Haappy day, you sure made mine!
Love in the work of God,
I became a little emotional after reading her letter. You guys did this! AND they made it there!
I’m sure we’ll receive even more exciting updates when they get distributed throughout the village, but the fact that they are there and she wouldn’t have any diapers if it wasn’t for all of you…I have no words to describe it. I am proud to be a part of this community of mothers. It’s not just words, there is action behind our message and support.
Here is what I’m proposing as our next plan of action:
1. Continue to send cloth diapers.
2. Continue to fundraise with other moms for the water filtration project.
3. Bring an EC expert down at the beginning of March. Are you one? Do you know one? Let us know.
Thank you again for your outpouring of support and love! I makes me hopeful for the future. I cannot wait to watch this community strengthen and hear the feedback of how we want to connect with others next. It is working, and that is because it is good and right.
All my love and respect,
