The love of Christ and planting seeds!

If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; (James 2:8 NKJV)

In 2010, I had the privilage of visiting Gentle Shepard Home for a second time.  I met a worker named Joyce and she had a baby that she would bring with her to work.  My Heavenly Father gives me so many opportunities to befriend anyone I meet, and so by the help of an interpretor I befriended my sister Joyce.  She had been asking me to take her little baby Theresa home with me to America and care for her, I didn't understand why; until I asked why.  She told me that Theresa was her 6th child and her husband would beat her to have sex, and she knew that she would have a hard time caring for now all six children.  My heart broke for her and her children, I prayed with her and told her I could not take her child.  Throughout the rest of my time at GSH, I was able to encourage her and love her and Theresa, and then I left to go back to America.  I have returned by God's grace after the almost four years; and Joyce doesn't work at GSH anymore but she does visit.  She has visited a few times since I have been here and she now is on birthcontrol after having her 7th child.  She is living a different kind of life now.  She sent her son-Samwel and daughter-Theresa to see me and give me a massive Papaya.  (as shown in the picture)  I am more than blessed to have held such a precious little girl that has a very humble spirit.  They came to see me in their sundays best clothes.  I know that God has been working in Joyce's life and changing her daily.  I do pray that she can plant seeds in others lives as well.  I just thought this would be a good update for everyone to enjoy!

God is able and the devil is a lier!

God's glory is so Amazing!  I am so thankful to live in the Hope of Glory.

Each day being here at GSH has been more than a blessing.  This past sunday was a turning point as a song was sung about "God is able." Just know when you listen to the devil's lies, you will only live with heartache and pain.  Be encouraged today that:
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, (Ephesians 3:20 NKJV)
Trust in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38, 39 NKJV)
Please know that if you only believe and not trust or have faith, you are robbing yourself of the abundant life that God has for you. 

There were many that have been waiting to have this available to them and now it is here, a donate button on the blog.   Thanks to Beth Collis for helping!

I also would like to Thank each of you that have already given and all of your prayers that have been given too!  God is so faithful to any need or request that has been made.  

Please keep me and my family in your prayers, my grandma "Nanny" is in a Life Care facility on hospice and I am here in Africa.  I was able to tell her I love her and she was able to hear my voice, and I am thankful for all the prayers that have already been answered! God is so good!  I know that she is in peace and I also know that she will see Glory!  

Be blessed; with love,
