ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " G "
Welcome to ABC Wednesday and the letter " G ".
I am calling this post
The post I entered on May 6, 2013 talked about Kenya, Africa
and our time there.
I posted a picture of the little GIRL we now support monthly
through Compassion International.
Several weeks after that we received a letter from the GIRL'S Pastor.
It thanked us for helping her.
When I read the pastor's name I realized that our little Yiamat
lived in the same Bush Village in Namuncha where we stayed
for 2 weeks.
Of all the chidren we could have chosen,
we chose one
we possibly talked to and played with during our time there.
Isn't that incredible?
I believe GOD put us together because we will always have
Africa in our hearts.
So when our friend was returning to Kenya (see June 29, 2013)
we sent a GIFT to her.
And now, the rest of the story.
This is Yiamat in her school uniform.
We just received this updated photo.
She just celebrated her 7th birthday.
Because of our monthly GIFT, Yiamat is able to go to school.
I think her eyes are GORGEOUS and full of kindness.
Make sure you enlarge the pictures to really see her.
A Very Special GIFT.
Just last night I was GIVEN the most wonderful,
Yiamat's Mother made this traditional Massai
necklace as a token of GRATITUDE.
She is so thankful for the help we are GIVING her
I am so GRATEFUL that our friend brought it back
This truly is a GENEROUS GIFT of love.
The feeling GOES both ways.
