And She Wept

tearIn these last couple of weeks I saw tears come to the eyes of Nu Nu as she heard that Sar Sar Oo will have surgery to straighten her legs on September 15.  You see Nu Nu is a mother of girls this same age.  She has been praying for Sar Sar Oo who has to walk on her knees because of multiple contusions that were never reset.

I heard tears come from Becky Connely who has given her life to resettling refugees for more than two decades.  She worked side-by-side with Wayne Wingfield and now with Mark.  Becky is good at finding housing, arranging for furniture and has helped thousands to get a new start in America.  At times things can be overwhelming, pray for Becky of World Relief.

I saw tears come from my wife’s eyes as we heard through a translator that the family staying with us had lived on 31 lbs of rice a month for 13 years.  While we were worried about whether they would like our food, the family was grateful for any food.
