WHAT A JOY IT IS TO SEE WHEN HELPING REALLY HELPS. Today we visited Jessica's family, and we took lots of goodies over for the children, oranges, bananas, peaches, popped corn, drinks, etc. They were not expecting us, but were overjoyed for us to be there. The children ran inside quickly to tell mom and dad we were there.
As many of you know - the father was given work by one of the men who does a great deal of work for our LAMb Team as a contractor. He worked all winter, but has not had work this summer - as the contractor did not have work. Yet, for the improvements he helped make other places - he improved things at home too!
1. They build a new brick heating unit in their living room (see picture.)
2. Now they have a new cupboard in the kitchen (see picture.)
3. AND PERHAPS BEST OF ALL - they now have water inside the home - (see picture.)
4. They built a little block building to keep wood and coal for their stove.
We were so pleased to visit with them, see their new kittens, and just enjoy the children.
After a short moment - our breath was taken away. Mother told us she has protected the toys we have given the children so they will alway remember us. At that point they ran to the bedroom and brought out an old suitcase (see picture) and opened it. Sure enough, there they were - stuffed animals, hot wheel cars - the entire lot of little toys. Oh my how humbling.
Once again - the common question and statement - "Please don't forget us."
DISTANCE, TIME AND SEPARATION - BUT FORGET - NEVER. THEIR EYES PIERCE OUR VERY BEING.
