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!
