Wow… God is working left and right here! Yesterday, we had the opportunity to spend time with the Rhino sisters. There is such love to be shared with them that they are deprived of due to so many circumstances. Their moms work insane hours, whether in the fields or gathering firewood in the mountains…The fathers are mostly not present, if so there is addictive situations that don’t allow for much interaction. To have the blessing of loving on these girls and spending time with them for an afternoon was a gift. They are the future of Buena Vista, along with their brothers that these families with DeepStream are so diligently working on day in and day out.
We got the privilege of spending time with these boys today at the academy and really had tons of fun! We had devotion, shared stories, and prayed for one another. We flew kites and played an insane water balloon game that had all of us in tears laughing. For these precious children, I imagine laughter comes rarely..
We got to see why laughter and joy and rawness of emotion comes rarely making home visits in the village. We put together food baskets to give out to some special families today. They were some of the Rhino families and they were so welcoming, kind, and gracious. We had wonderful conversation and got to see some more of Gods hand at work! All of his people are precious in His sight and we got to see His love all over Buena Vista. Please keep the families in your prayers, this is a hard life…not only for the people of the village but for the missionary families. It’s also a glorifying one. To honor God and to serve His people is an incredible thing to witness!
