Dear Sisters, Thursday night while I was volunteering at the rescue home, I asked one of my boys, Liam* (name changed) how his summer was. I expected him to smile and answer with all the fun things he had gotten to do. Instead Liam sobered and said quietly that his dad had passed away. The kids who live at this home are rescued from abusive, unhealthy or dangerous situations. Some are orphans and some have family. They rarely talk about the family they do have, usually because they've been extremely hurt by them. But no matter what, I've found that family is still family and more than anything, that's what these kids long for - loving, healthy, safe families. I told Liam I would be praying for him and his family. He stopped, looked up at me and asked me if I really would pray for them. After I reassured him that I really would, he smiled and said he would pray for his family too. What a moment of beautiful, childlike faith! Liam's simple "You sai
I absolutely love reading about your time in Taiwan! I especially love it when you tell about your friends and the kids around you along with their stories! It would be great if you could tell us if you have anyone you need prayer for, we are here for that very reason!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for your sweet note! What an encouragement to me. I really appreciate it. Thank you also for asking about how you can pray for me and for Taiwan. I will be sure to add those to future posts. And here are a few for now:
- pray for the aboriginal village I visit weekly. Pray for Light to break the evil and darkness there. Pray for the kids who run wild - that we can speak His truth and love into their lives and hearts each week.
- pray for our health. Living here on the island can be tough and wearing on our bodies.
Thank you, precious sister! May our Lord bless you abundantly!
