Caroline is a midwife from Bristol, UK.
"I love babies, I love Africa, I love the sky...sunrises, sunsets, stars...I have the most amazing friends... I love to laugh, to talk, music...I love LIFE in it's abundance. I don't like compromise and just making do".
In 2006 I lived in Madagascar for 6 months working as a volunteer midwife with YWAM (youth with a mission) Madagascar. I lived in a village with no electricity, in a YWAM base with all Malagasy staff. I worked as a midwife and delivered some beautiful babies. I totally fell in love with Madagascar, with the amazing people that I met there and with the awesome surroundings of rural Madagascar. I was so sad to leave them at the end of my time there and came home wondering what God had planned next in my life.
At the end of 2008 I really felt God leading me to Iris Ministries in Mozambique to do the mission school there. This I attended and learned so much and really enjoyed my time there. During the last two weeks of school, God began speaking to me about my future. Heidi (Baker) challenged us one day in class, that if we were prepared to lay our lives down for Jesus, if we felt like we had to answer His call to missions, to come to the front and ask God to show us His plans. I went up and I began to pray.
Pemba, Mozambique Class 2008
I had already booked a ticket to Madagascar on the way home from Mozambique to visit my friends there. So after seeing what God had planned for me, I used this time to ask them all that I could about abandoned babies. They all told me that babies were abandoned in the capital, and that they had heard of babies being abandoned in dumpsters and being left to die. One baby had been found dead in the rubbish behind the house that I stayed in, a few weeks before I arrived. Many of the orphanages are currently full, which leaves no where for these babies to go, so there is a BIG need for a baby house there!
Caroline & Blessing in 2008. Blessing was one of the babies Caroline delivered in 2006, she was even given the proud responsibility of naming him and visits him on her return trips to Madagascar.
So I am in the process of setting up this baby house, God's baby house where He can sing over these precious little ones and restore them back to life. It will be a place where they can know that they are loved, that they matter and that they really are the treasure of this house which will be called House of the Precious Treasure.
