Happier Times

Taken in June 2010. Bishop Alan Kenyon Hoare with 11 of the children who were baptised.

The Rt Revd Damien Mead, Bishop Ordinary of the Diocese of the United Kingdom, has launched a Diocesan Appeal for an ACC Orphanage in the Diocese of Southern Africa, which has been destroyed by fire with the loss of one of the childrens lives.

Bishop Alan Kenyon-Hoare of Southern Africa wrote this morning (17th July)

"I have very sad news to impart – we received a phone call during the night from Miriam Toni to say that the orphanage had burnt down and that one child, Jacob Toni, had died in the blaze.  The fire had apparently spread from a neighbouring house and everything was destroyed.
 
Please pray for the repose for the soul of the little one, and also for Miriam and her other children who are all very traumatized.  We will be able to give her some immediate financial aid, but obviously the task of replacing a complete household and supplying food and clothing will stretch our resources to the very limit.
 
Lord have mercy upon us.  Please pray for us"
