"And if you SPEND YOURSELVES on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness and your night will become like the noonday."

"The Lord will continually guide you. He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail."- Isaiah 58:10-11

Day Two - Part Two

After we left the market we went to a halfway house of a large orphanage called "The Nest." We were at kind of a satellite orphanage.   This house cares for small babies and children whose mothers are in prison.  The older children were at school so we got to spend time just holding the babies.  The girls and I were in heaven!  We were there for almost 2 hours holding them, laughing with them, and playing with them.  We had a chance to pray for each one of them as we held them that some day they would find Jesus as their Savior and would grow up to be strong leaders and make a difference in their community.  I'm sure we'll go back before we leave.  
We've also had so much fun with our family.  The kids have had a blast with their cousins.  They were feeling a little better today.  Still a lot of coughing but less feverish.  Please continue to pray for our health.

Annie, I love to hear the voice of God in your words. How He loves orphans. How He loves the poor and destitute. And how the only real riches are found in His kingdom. Labor on, friend.

Ann, May God answer those prayers. What a privilege to be able to hold and pray for the eternal salvation of these little ones who are loved by our Lord. I love you my friend. We will be praying for your health, especially Katie's. Tam
