To Comfort always, to Relieve often, to Save sometimes

New Hope Foundation Ltd. June 2014 Newsletter

                  
         
    
 
 This month we were elated to have the Chapman family over to stay with us in Beijing and also to visit some of the Centers in Henan including Maria’s Big House of Hope in Luoyang. It’s been such a long time since we last were together and much has happened in both our families during that time but being together again was just like ‘old times’. The girls, Shoey and Stevie Joy and our Katie, were excited to see each other and all of them have grown so much. Rob took them to Zhengzhou amidst much celebration and they also attended meetings with high officials in Zhengzhou. They also visited Nanyang CWI which is asking for our help and we have committed to opening 72 new beds there probably by the end of this year. Dr Steve has no objections to the increased workload and with Dr Zhai’s help I am sure they and the nurses will do  a wonderful job.
 
We are thankful for all the help we have received from all the Love Without Boundaries team members over these years since September 2006 when the first LWB child came to NHF Heartbridge Unit in Beijing.  Since then, 145 babies have been with us, and lives have been changed. Love Without Boundaries have decided to centralize their work in Guizhou where the needs are great. Some of the current children here in Beijing will go into their Guizhou foster program but we will keep several of the sicker ones under the care of NHF to see them through their current treatment till they are healthy enough to be moved at a later date.

Sometimes the journey that God takes you on, is more important than the final destination. The path He takes you on may be, to others, fearful, stupid, embarrassing, illogical and painful, but stop and look! At each step there is much to learn. The strength of your faith will be tested time and time again and every time you turn to Him in your pain, embarrassment or fear, you will see how close to Him you have become.

We mentioned in our recent April newsletter that the Hansen family joined our team as volunteers in Beijing for a year and that their almost 10 year old daughter Ashley was once a child at New Hope.  Since being back in Beijing, Ashley has developed a complication with her shunt that is requiring urgent surgery. She has had surgery and is in recovery.  Please pray for her and the family.
