The Twins

The twins that I wrote about in the last post have now come to stay. Their names are Geno and Gena. Their mom says they are 19 months old…which I’m a little unsure of. Geno has no teeth and only weighs 7lbs…he has gotten a lot worse. The no teeth thing kind of puzzles me, but his mom said he had a run with kwashiorkor last year. She explained that his legs and face “were big with water” but Miss Pat gave him milk and he got better. I’m not sure if being that malnourished can prevent teeth from coming in or not. Gena, his sister, is a little better off. She weighs about 12.5 lbs, and has teeth! They are both very limp, and have just a little hair that is blonde tipped from being malnourised. They live about 4 hours away, but the mother was finally conviced to stay. They stay here on campus all day, receiving feeding (F-75 by WHO) every 2 hours, and then are staying with someone in town at night. The mother seems to have a change of heart and is willing to stay as long as it takes. When they came yesterday, they came with their father too. He supposedly was going home to get food from their garden and then coming back. He has yet to return. Please pray for his return, otherwise the twins’ and their mother’s lives have just gotten that much harder. I will post pictures in a week or so…we forgot our camera cord! Please continue to pray for Geno and Gena!!



  1. You cleanse the face twice a day, moisturize and also use an astringent
    toner to reduce oil, dirt and bacteria. It isn’t Microdermabrasion alone that I am endorsing mobile phone . the treatments for acne scars, it’s the combination of glycolic acid and Microdermabrasion that seem
    to create the difference with acne scars. Acne Complex works with a number
    of proven acne fighting ingredients and skin soothing botanicals.

  2. I pay a quick visit everyday some sites and information sites to read content, but this web site presents feature based posts.
