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

As you will all know this has been a very difficult time for all of us here at New Hope Foundation and for our family. We have gone from planning Joyce’s funeral after the massive bleed /stroke that she had on the 24th of June to today, watching her walk around the room (with help) and sit for long periods in an upright position with no headaches. She still has a long way to go and we look forward to her being less confused mentally as time goes on.

My first thank you must go to God for not taking her home yet and in the words of Steven Curtis Chapman’s song  â€œOnly getting started”, “ you ain’t seen nothing yet” seems to apply to Joyce’s future.

Next are the staff and management at the Beijing United Family Hospital. They have amazed me with the care and love that they shown Joyce during this time.

Then there are the wonderful staff we have at New Hope Foundation who have confidently stepped up to make sure that every baby in our care get the sort of treatment that Joyce would have wanted. It will be a long time before Joyce is able to take over the leadership of NHF but I know she will be very proud of everyone here when she takes back over.

The prayers and messages of support from you all have really helped me thru these times that I will not pretend have been easy. Thank you all.

For me as a Christian my trust has been in Jesus to walk thru this with me, and he has in so many different ways through circumstance and resources, but most of all even when I was at my worse was the peace inside me that I felt. There is an old gospel song by Barry McGuire and the words go like this:

Walked a mile with pleasure
She chattered all the way
Left me none the wiser
With all she had to say
Walked a mile with sorrow
Never a word said she
But oh the things I learned from her
When sorrow walked with me

For me I have learned that there is absolutely nothing that can separate me from HIS love.

Robin, Joyce & all our Family
Our Needs

This month we have run very low on funds for the Beijing Unit we do not even have 1 months running costs in the bank. If you feel that you would like to help us build this up a little it would be a blessing. Our budgeted running cost for Beijing is US$65,000 per month on top of that we have some substantial medical costs which we need to meet.
