During our outreach trip to South Africa this summer, our mission team was able to visit a missionary family living in a remote area amongst the Zulu people. Their daughter, Fifi, who has already finished high school, visits people with great needs on a regular basis.
I was allowed to join her on a house visit to two baby twins who had lost their mom during their birth, and are now raised by their grandma who is old and injured. My heart broke as I saw their poor living conditions in a mud hut beside an open fire.
Whilst bathing one of the little ones I realized that these kids are in such a great need and I was blessed to share a tiny bit of God’s love with them. I came to know that sometimes we are allowed to feel our Father’s pain in order to be filled with compassion and an urge to serve.
