We carried a heavy tote full of goods to Betty's house through 100 meters of this. Betty had to put down rocks in her house so that we could step in to her home. It was humbling to see this woman who is clearly not well, working so hard to get us a place in her very small home.
Betty lives where she lives because she has nothing. When I say nothing, she literally has the things that we gave her to eat the day we arrived. She cried as she told us a painful story. When HIV enters the picture often times the women are left to take care of themselves and their children. Apart from Christ, it is a bleak situation. Not this day, however. There was rejoicing in this house over a simple 30 minute visit that Betty declared was a God ordained appointment. I've never seen anything so difficult and glorious all at one time. I'm so grateful to have been able to watch these students be intentional and go the distance. My prayer is that God will allow me to watch them continue to grow in their relationship with Him and watch it impact the globe for His glory.
The following are our 6th graders blessing this home and those that were in it. One of my favorite parts was that there were younger children outside watching. When our kids started praying, they covered their faces and prayed along with us out loud. Thank You Jesus for taking hold of all of these hearts and for allowing me to be a part of this. YOU ARE SO GOOD!
