|Washing her clothes|
Never have I been in a place in my life where this is my reality. I pray I always keep that heart for the poor and never forget what I do have. Not long after we got here, 5 years ago, Madison being barely 11 years old, we found a young street boy curled up in his single t-shirt sleeping on the street. We took him to a used store and bought him a pair of pants and some food. Madison was so troubled. She said "mom...we have SO much, and he has nothing...we need to give everything away and help him." I said "honey...that is exactly what we have done. And here we are, to help people just like him."
I told her not to feel guilty because we had things and he did not. I said it isn't shame on us, it is shame on them that have and do not give as we have been mandatd by God to do.
So pray for this woman who has left 100% of her pride to have come to this place in her life where her only clothes she must wash piece by piece in a fountain in the middle of the city. And while you are at it, pray for all the other people who are seeking God and seeking peace in their lives.
