Genesis Flutes: A story of 6 blessings: While on a mission trip in Nicaragua I met a most fascinating human being who fast became a dear friend. Genesis is 10 years old and is one of Flutemaker Ministries Mercy Kids needing medical treatment and receiving food from us. She is so special everyone likes her. Things were tough for her back home as no help was coming from the medical field to deal with a network of veins in her face causing a malformation on her lip.
One day while visiting Mercy Kids, I stopped by with my flutes and puppet Lulu and Genesis and I had the greatest time together. A few days later I heard that their stove was stolen and I returned with our team to bring her one. See the pictures on the right that captured this.
One day when Keylin, Genesis' mom, took her to an appointment far away in Managua, there was no room inside the government shelter. Keylin kept the mosquitos away from Genesis as she slept on her lap out side under an overhang. But by 3 am, weary Keylin fell asleep. She dreamed she stood up in a church service and declared in a loud voice, "I will no longer come to find healing for my daughter by bus. I will come by plane."
Blessing #1: A wonderful opportunity opened for Genesis and her mother Keylin to come to the USA for medical treatment.
Blessing #2: While here, I showed Genesis how to make flutes. Under my supervision these are collectable flutes called Genesis Flutes. We donate all the proceeds to help her back in Nicaragua.
Blessing #3: When I realized this family bathed out of a bucket because they were so poor, that their front door was bad, their pila where they washed their dishes and clothes leaked, their roof rafters were rotten with termites, and the adobe walls were cracked and would not support a new roof, that they all slept in one room and shared a latrine with their neighbor, it looked like my next mercy house project. So while mom and daughter are here, some of my customers and others who support our work in Nicaragua began to help build their new home.
Blessing #4: We also hired Levi, Genesis' dad, to work for A Heart To Love Foundation whom we support. He is a painter who was out of work. He continues to paint our mercy homes and is learning to do many other things.
Blessing #5: The 5th blessing for this family has been hiring a seamstress to teach Keylin how to sew. When she returns she can have a micro-business to help break them out of poverty.
Blessing #6: Genesis has learned how to swim and to speak some English.
Medical update: Genesis has had her 7th procedure to neutralize the network of veins. She goes for plastic surgery Oct. 22, 2018 she has been with us now for 6 months.
Enjoy the video on this page. Genesis puts the cute into flutemaking.
Songs 1 and 3 are with a major scale and song 2 is with the minor scale.
All of Genesis flutes are signed by her. And include some of her art work. The Genesis Flutes come with a flute bag made by Keylin, to protect your flute and to say thank you!
