We have had the pleasure of spending time the last 2 weeks with Carol.  She is a Mercy Associate from Philadelphia who is working at the orphanage.  

Terry and Mercy
Yesterday, a man brought a 2 day old infant from the bush.  The mother apparently is mentally disabled and was unable to care for the child and the father apparently ran off.  The infant's uncle and grandmother tried carrying for the child and gave it pig milk.  They decided they could not manage so the uncle brought the child to the orphanage.  They were calling the infant Newborn and Carol, with their permission, renamed her Mercy.
Today, Mercy was doing well.  We pray her family will be able to someday take her back home.  They made a difficult decision out of love.
