Day to Day

In Baseco there are so many young mothers the Team find themselves constantly Mothering these young mums

Often they are alone and scared, they have left their home in the Province or parents and have no support and find themselves with a baby in a strange world! Just  like this sweet mum Christine helped this year.

She was not a Birthing Better Baby mum but she was young alone and inexperienced with a new baby. The baby was struggling to feed and she just needed some support.

She just needed some mothering. It does not take much to love and listen. The women on the ground in Baseco are constantly being a mother to the motherless.

Our quote really fits into this situation…..

“Becoming a mother makes you the mother of all children. From now on each wounded, abandoned, frightened child is yours. You live in the suffering mothers of every race and creed and weep with them. You long to comfort all who are desolate.” — Charlotte Gray

Providing an ear and a spiritual shoulder to lean on goes a long way in Baseco

Christine Mum to Many

imageChristine’s world in Baseco is a lot about bandages, burns and babies. She is simply always helping someone. She is so much more patient with people than I am. She always has time for everyone.

She obviously does many other things than those mentioned above, but she is much more pastoral than I am. I get the title, but she has the gift.

She is a mum to hundreds.

Chris is an inspiration in so many ways. She was not young when the call to missions came, she has a few minor health issues, grand kids in Australia…plenty of reasons to not do what she is doing, but away she went, and she is such a blessing to so many.

Anyone, at any stage in Life, can follow the call of Jesus.

Pst Mark
