A smile and a parcel of food, some hygiene kits and a whole lot of compassion is good, and it’s what I believe God has put in our hearts to do. But at the end of the day, while my care and kindness might make their day a little better, God is the only one who can change their lives. So as I think of all the people I’ve met who have so deeply touched my heart, the most important, most loving thing I could do for them is to pray. Pray that they would come to know Jesus. Pray that the words of our chaplain Leonid reaches their hearts. Pray for healing and restoration for the woman sick and living in a dark basement. Pray for a revelation of God’s love over the lives of the broken hearted that are too afraid to leave because they don’t know what lies ahead. God has a beautiful plan for each one of them, and it’s devastating to think that some of them may not know him at all, while others may have been taught the wrong message. I know I can’t do much, but with God the outcome can be magnificent.
I’m so thankful to be a part of an organization that puts God first. It’s a privilege to work alongside others who want to see God move in powerful ways, and He definitely has! Thank you to everyone who has helped fund this project, and thank you to all the prayer warriors out there!
