Barbara came up to me; “Mama Cindy, I prayed to God to give me new shoes,” she looked down with excitement, “Look He gave me shoes!!!”
What child in the US would be so excited over a pair of plastic flip flops? But for our kids at the Village, it is Christmas every time they get a new shirt, underwear, toothbrush! It’s a beautiful thing!
But my mind always goes back to the many orphans in the IDP camps, who tonight will go to sleep on a dirt floor, without a blanket, without safety… and pray, “Lord, bring them home to the Village.”
