To Comfort always, to Relieve often, to Save sometimes
Dear Friends,

This month once again has seen our truly amazing staff continue the work here in China giving the best possible care to the babies we have been trusted to look after. Joyce has returned home and it seems that given time she will make a full recovery.

We would like to let everyone know that Dr Steve Martin who at the moment is working for us in Luoyang will officially take over the role as Chief Medical Officer for New Hope Foundation. Joyce is going to take a step back for a while she recovers. Steve is a very experienced doctor and has the same heart to help these babies as Joyce has had, so we will continue as normal.


If you can please direct any medical inquiries to him at - toshab@gmail.com

All other inquiries can continue to be directed to me at - robin@hopefosterhome.com
 
Once again thank you all for your prayers and good wishes during this time,
 
Robin, Joyce and Family
Our Needs

 - Thank you to all who have responded to our previous request to build up our account for running costs. We are still in need of finances to build up this fund. Please contact Robin if you would like to help.

- As the winter approaches, we will need to raise $30,000 (USD) to buy coal to supply heat for the foster home for the duration of the winter.

- Please pray for the health of the children here as the Fall often bring with it the flu which can be hard on their immune systems.
