Joyce #2

Joyce, better known as Mama Triplets, is the mother of Edward, Elesha and Esther.  The triplet boys were brought to Neema Village shortly after their birth.  Baby Esther had many medical problems and stayed in the hospital for over a month.  After the baby came home the mother, Joyce also came to stay at Neema.  Joyce had made a living on the street and contracted HIV.  We are testing the babies and so far they are clear.  A few months ago Joyce came asking to take the boys home but she would need help setting up a business.  We have moved her away from her neighborhood and set her up in a small duke (store) selling soap, oils, rice, beans etc.  We pray Joyce will be a good mom and care for the boys.  Esther is still at Neema and attending the Neema Village Day Care for Handicap Babies in Arusha.  We are very happy for this mom who is trying to make a new life for herself and her children.  Please be praying for her.


Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
