Still she sings

Meet Sadia Moyo, a little girl orphaned and abandoned amidst the horror of the genocide in Sudan. Sadia has been rescued by the brothers there, crazy enough to pour their lives out for Christ and the orphans around them.

We can't comprehend what these children have gone through or the danger that they face every day. I've been reading about the work of Kimberly Smith* and Make Way Partners. Beautiful, ugly, agonizing work to rescue women and children from human trafficking and other forms of slavery. Torn by joy for those they can give safety and hope to and deep pain for the hundreds, thousands and more still suffering.

Please care. Help if you can. Above all pray to our God, the One who hears the cries of the desolate and is our only hope, the only one who can bring justice and peace and redemption.

Sadia is now being cared for. Kimberly writes: Day by day, Sadia takes the new girls under her wing, teaching them how to make tea, clean up, and find joy.

She sings, "I have power, in Jesus I have power...Lord Jesus give me power every hour."

Come quickly, Lord Jesus.

We have friends who are currently working in Sudan. Things are very tense right now because of the warring. They exercise total dependence on God. And God is good. I'm always reminded of how blessed we are and how we're called to share that blessing.
