This mission in Zambia is definitely a walk of faith! I, alone, do not have the resources to accomplish the tasks before me. I have no idea which hearts God will touch to respond to the needs in Mbayi or where they will hail from.
I do know that God is concerned about the poor and oppressed and wants us to help, to share.
Many already have! A few days ago we delivered the roofing sheets for the chicken house, the vegetable gardens are thriving, the maize is being planted, and the new well is yielding cool water.
What many of you don't know is that Mrs. B is still knitting hats for the babies here and she has been at it since January. Her contributions inspired a woman in British Columbia (who saw the 100 Huntley Street interview) to donate a box of hats and booties that she has been knitting.
She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. Proverbs 31:20
A few weeks ago I found out that a container headed for Musenga was about to leave. In just one day my mother, my sister Sheri and my friend Susan rushed around collecting items and transporting them to the depot for shipping. I hear that the children in Mbayi have many wonderful surprises on the way!
I thank God for these caring hearts and how He has provided through them. I have faith that He will continue to do so.
