I carried orphans (Lindo, Thabo, Jamesy) on my back. I watched my baby (Lindo) be adopted into a family that welcomed me.
I held Lerato (love) in my arms before mixing mud to make bricks to build her a house.
I equipped learners with biblical truths and encouraged them to step out to become contagious Christians.
I worshipped God on a mountain with my people.
I pray. I call. I encourage. I am mindful.
I bought TOMS shoes that give a pair of shoes to a South African kiddo.
I bought Lerato shirts to support someone who spoke truth into my life and still does..
And now. I can shop at the Thrive Store.
Even though, things look quite a bit different from last year
what I wrote before and finally got around to painting rings true.
“I have you in my heart.” Philippians 1:7
I can still make an impact
even from 9000 miles away
and so can you.
A shirt, a coffee mug, becoming a monthly supporter…
Together we can hold them in our hearts and make it possible for them to be held by loving arms, to learn God’s truth, to be empowered with love to change their nation.
