Oh friends, I have debated whether to even post this—but I’m gonna do it! Why? Because this is real life. This is the reality of what happens beyond my four walls, my blessed little life. Because God used this video to break my heart for the things that break His. It is so easy for me to get so caught up in my ridiculous little woes. Ugh—this brought me back to a harsh reality—that there is a world out there that NEEDS Jesus. That there are children out there who so desperately need a mommy and a daddy. My human heart and mind just cannot fathom the magnitude of the orphan crisis—all 140 MILLION of them.
This is heartbreaking to watch, I wept the whole way through—but do it. Allow God to do something in your heart, just like He did for me. There is good news to follow….
Yes, my petty concerns and silly worries do all of a sudden seem quite insignificant. My perspective on life is different—God has used Sam and Esther to show me, once again, that life is fragile, life is short—what am I going to do to make a difference? What a challenge from the Father.
There is good news—Sam, Esther and their older sister Jane are all doing WELL. I found this little comment from the producer of the video on YouTube—
The film I made about Uganda, THE FRAGRANT SPIRIT OF LIFE, has already raised about $50,000 for orphans in Uganda.
Sam, Esther and Jane are all doing well. Sam and Esther have been nutritionally rehabilitated and are receiving on-going therapy for their polio. Sam can stand with the aid of braces. Jane is going to school and is thriving.
Thanks for your concern.
Peace and blessings,
Friends, I can NO LONGER sit back and do nothing. I don’t care if it means sponsoring a child, going on a mission trip, adopting a child….it ALL makes a difference. If you have never read the biography of George Mueller—PLEASE read it. It will change your life forever! Talk about making a difference in the lives of children—all by absolute Faith.
It’s true that God can use a tiny little child—Thank you Sam, Esther and Jane for changing my life…forever!
