April in Lukulu

It is April.  I hear them.  Their noise is almost constant.  The local children are home on school holiday, yet they are mostly alone.  Babysitters are basically nonexistent in this culture although older siblings are usually around somewhere.  It hurts my heart that they are left essentially to themselves during these times – well, really, most of the time.  I pray for them.  Pray that they will grow in the knowledge of the Lord; that they will know the saving grace of Christ Jesus; that they will be safe and healthy; that someone will take an interest in who they are and cultivate their strengths; that they will feel special and loved.  I keep praying…
