Dear Friends and Family,
Centre of Love for the Disabled and Chronically Ill
Moquattam Garbage Village (MGV), Cairo
“How come we get to stay for only 2 days?” pouted Martha, “last year you promised us more!”
All of the 10 young Moms expressed the same sentiment. This was the first time in at least a year that they had been able to swim, have someone else caring for their disabled kids and talk to other moms and staff about the problems they face. Here is a picture of some of them with me.
God was so good to us at the camps this year! After you all prayed, we only had 2 more evenings of black outs. A record number attended the 5 camps, including 75 mentally and/or physically disabled kids and 91 chronically ill adults. We also had more volunteers than usual and the sense of harmony between them was really beautiful. Our speakers were great, and I was especially happy that one of them was Ramez!
Would you take a minute right now to thank the Lord for all His blessings to us? He is truly a prayer-responding God.
A big challenge and joy lies ahead of us this summer as 24 Intervarsity Christian Fellowship students will come to minister at the MGV, living at the Center of Love for 5 weeks. We also will have a small group doing a course for moms and future teachers of kids with Cerebral Palsy. So it will be a very eventful and busy summer and, again, many power shortages are forecasted for the next few months. Prayers are needed!
Deeply grateful for your love and prayers
Ramez and Rebecca Atallah
