THE EAGLE HAS LANDED WEE BERNIE FLIES INTO LAX 30 HRS of flying time...Ethiopia –London - LAX

Thursday 11.50 pct
Well what an experience.........
We picked up Bernahua at Lax tonight at around 8 .30pm
He is around 2 ft tall ,his back is badly deformed, his left hand shriveled and he is very shy and withdrawn.
Carrie has a Ethiopian Phrase book and we have managed to get a few words out of him.
He will be our foster child for the next three/four months.........

How Rich are we in the west........this wee man is one of the meekest human beings on the face of the earth..he has nothing, no parents ,not even a body that works properly.

We met another couple who were taking the little girl in the pictures ,she has heart problems............she was almost breathless .
The girl who went to Ethiopia for Wee Bernie- said he was in a mission waiting three weeks on the flight.SHe has flown around 60 hrs in the past few days............30 there and 30 back....!

The conditions were squalid. Bernie also has head lice.
Immediate action is required in then form of a hot bath.and special stuff that stinks.....!

As I type we are in a Hotel on Century boulevard Beth and Carrie are in one bed and me and the wee man are in the other..............as we put his wee Jamies on tonight his skin is hard his hands and feet are rugged.....I am shocked at his twisted body......what an affliction.

He has fallen asleep clutching a small teddy bear with his little arm with three fingers.
Tomorrow we travel over to the Children's hospital for some tests and examinations.
If I can do anything with this life ,I genuinely want to support mending Kids and get as many people involved as possible.

Caroline sleeps ....this is her project- but to be honest I am so overwhelmed by Love for this child I feel it will be impossible to let him go back.

Mending Kids are looking for someone to take the two children back......its a 30 hr flight ,60 hr round trip-......... I feel I want to go and see the conditions in Ethiopia for myself...........

How far away from a village in Scotland all this seems............A little boy sound asleep ,so much in need ,yet so much love comes from his little smile..when Bernie smiles the world lights up.

James 1 27 27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

I think I need to do a blog or something like face book for Bernie to keep everyone up to speed- The love the support and the stuff you have given us has been overwhelming.this may also help awareness for mending kids.............the tears in the eyes of the mending kids staff tonight were so so real....!

As we snuggled up I got a bit of blank paper and drew what had happened to him, he nodded as I drew a matchstick man in Ethiopia flying on a big silver bird to America.......God let this lad be made whole ,in your precious name amen and amen.

why a blogg......?

Well I thought I would start a blog....!
Blimey what for, I am busy enough without adding more E type work......to my day....

I think.....I can use this blog to simply,tell as many people as I can,I have found the answer to all of the problems, the dilemmas and the heartaches of life.........

Simply God made man - man has gone bad- God sent his son as last chance to turn from our sorry ways- if we believe in him we live forever in paradise -if not we languish in Hell.....for ever and that is a long time.....

I think I want to give the rest of my life to tell people,the need for a faith in Christ.
Every move I make must point towards Christ.....!
