Supporting "Mansa Fountain of Blessings,"
a Zambian certified orphan center
Meet Susan C.
Susan is 10 years old and in grade 4 this year at Mansa Basic Primary School. She truly enjoys going to school and her favorite subject is math. “During my free time, I enjoy praying for my family and playing with my sister,” Susan said. She stays in the village called Kabwesha with her mother, two older brothers, and one younger sister.
Susan loves coming to Mansa Fountain of Blessings for learning about God’s word, playing with her new friends, and eating a hot Zambian meal with meat, which she usually doesn’t get at home. Her mother sells popcorns in front of their house to try and help support the household.
Susan’s Favorite Bible Verse:
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isiah 9:6
Susan does many house chores at home such as cleaning all the dishes, sweeping the surroundings, and fetching water. She enjoys playing with dolls. She was very excited to learn how to make her own dolls by sewing them and decorating at Mansa Fountain of Blessings on craft day. Susan also enjoys going to church which is held at her neighbor’s house, to sing and listen to the commands God wants.
Meet Lenox M.
Lenox is 15 years old, born in 2003 right outside of Mansa. This year, 2018, he is just beginning grade 6 at Kaole Primary School. His really enjoys going to school and is number 1 in his class. Just like Richard, Lenox too wants to be a doctor and favorite subject is science.
Just in case you were curious, the Bemba name for dodge ball is Bigin!
He stays in Shapi village, which is actually the same village that Mansa Fountain of Blessings in located in. Lenox lives with his uncle and aunt in the Mansa area so he could attend a good school. His mother lives in a very rural area doing farming to try to help support the whole family, including distant relatives. His father died when he was only 5 years old and had been sick a long time. Lenox has two sisters and is the first born of his family.
He is in charge of fetching water at the neighbor’s borehole because they do not have one at their own house. There are a total of seven people staying at the house he lives in, that includes his two sisters, aunt and uncle, and their two children.
He said he learned it during his first year at Mansa Fountain of Blessings. Lenox has been with us for over two years now and has gone from a boy to a young man. He loves playing football (soccer) with his friends when he has free time, which he says isn’t often because of school work, house work, and tutorials.
Lenox's Favorite Bible Verse:
“Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” Proverbs 28:13
At Mansa Fountain of Blessings, Lenox loves being apart of the family because they pay for his school. He loves education, you will often find him in our center’s library reading or doing homework from school before Bible lessons begin. Before Mansa Fountain of Blessings, many of his clothes had holes in them and he didn’t have any shoes that were proper to wear to school but now he has nice new clothes and brand-new school shoes that he proudly wear. He is very thankful to be part of Mansa Fountain of Blessings.
