Yesterday we met and heard the story of a lady who works in our medical centre and was previously one of our sponsored children at the Gardens. She told us how her father died and her father's family completely disowned her family and left them with virtually nothing. Becuase of the sponsorship she recieved, she now has a respectable career at our medical centre as a nurse and with her income has managed to purchase a 10x7ft home for herself. She shares this home with her mother, sister and sometimes her 2 neices sleep there too.
On the wall next to her front door she has this verse: Zephaniah 3:20 At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you home. I will give you honour and praise among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes,’ says the Lord.
Please keep this lady in your prayers, her whole attitude in life is based around serving others. Her uncle has a piece of land (similar size to her own home) which he refuses to sell to her or let her use and which he just uses for storing rubbish in. Please pray that her Uncle will release that space for her or that God will provide her with a more glorious alternative!
