Completely Drained... God at Work!

My morning started early with a prayer time online with a special friend...
“God, drain us physically in every way so that we know Your power today - that it is You working, and not us!”

 I'm not even sure I like that prayer!  As we lay in bed that night, completely drained, we recognized God's hand...


Home school and laundry both interrupted early with a knock at the gate.


A neighbor lady, suffering with both TB and HIV - whom we have visited and taken food to...

So weak, she really can barely walk...

Kicked out of her home by her angry husband - with no money to get back to her mom's place (a 3 hour bus ride away) - he told her to "go footing".  She could barely make it to our house!

After some food and juice, and a very long talk, Bernadita recognized and received the love of the ONE who will never reject her... JESUS!

I went to bed that night with all my wet, soapy laundry in buckets still covering the kitchen floor... drained emotionally and physically... and recognizing God's hand at work!
