Week in review: May 30, 2020

We made it through another week of quarantine! This week we were able to serve the new village and bring food to all in need. On the site, we featured Ruth’s Story and the Feast of Pentecost. Continue reading to see a glimpse from our outreaches this week as well as a recap of all the posts on the site.

New Village

This week we were able to visit the new village again several times bringing food, showing them God’s love, and praying for them! We learned they’ve never been able to eat more than once a day. The children are malnourished. But look at them! So precious. So filled with joy whenever our volunteers arrive. Thank you so much for praying and providing for these little ones!

Giving food and love!

Jesus is the Bread of Life. We brought rice for the families, and some packaged meals we were able to get. And we wanted each child to have bread of their own. This is security for them. With the, they know they will have more later.

We were able to bring the doctor from our hospital to look at the kids. He confirmed that a few that are sick have the regular flu and not COVID19! We are praying for health and protection for all of them!

Our doctor taught them about face coverings. In these villages, it’s so difficult to separate because they live communally. And so they do what they can, and we’ll pray for protection for all!

Giving rice!

It’s tough to see the difference in our kids and in the kids in this new village. Our kids know Jesus, and know He will provide for them. When we bring them food or treats, they wait patiently, knowing it won’t run out before we get to them. They have confidence that they won’t be overlooked, that they won’t be left out. It’s been three years of experience with Jesus and with us, so they have this confidence. They know the love of Jesus. They know we love them. They know we won’t let them starve.

These new little ones don’t know any of that yet. But we are praying they will! We are praying God will draw their hearts to His, to speak to them, and give them peace in His presence. That they will come to know Him by experience as One who will provide for them. And we’re so grateful to be involved in what He is doing here!

And, as I watch this and consider the difference in the kids we’ve known for three years, and these kids we’ve known for mere weeks, I consider my own confidence in the One who provides. Do I wait patiently, confident? How often can I be still and know? I would say I have full confidence in Jesus. But how patiently am I waiting for all the things I’ve brought to Him to fix or provide? Waiting is hard! I want to be the one who waits patiently, full of confidence


Children’s Church

Here are the pics from our week with our kids from our Children’s Church! We’ve had a week of snacks and crafts and fun.

It is getting harder and harder to keep all the kids occupied. They miss school and learning new things! We’re looking into things we can do with them to help them continue learning while we’re in lockdown.

Tomorrow, since we can’t gather for church, our volunteers will visit each of the villages. All our people are going to gather to specifically pray for the new village!

Here little Rukku is showing us she’s about to lose a tooth!

Please continue to pray with us for protection and provision for our volunteers and those we serve!

Thank you for your love, your prayers for those we serve around the world! It’s absolutely amazing what happens when we come together and follow the Lord’s leading. I’m beyond grateful for you all!
