"OUR HEARTS ARE BROKEN"

"Jesus said, 'Whoever welcomes a little child like this in My name welcomes Me.'"  (New International Bible - Matthew 18:5)

I've been with my mother this past week while she had some surgery and, when I returned, Larry told me that one of our eight World Vision girls had died in a vehicle accident.  (He had kept it to himself and not told me until I was back home.)  As all of them are, she has been a special joy to us - and it has just broken our hearts!

This is the sweet face we chose to sponsor when she was just 6 years old!

 Just two weeks ago, we received a letter from her, thanking us for her Christmas gifts and money.  As you can see in the note, she bought a cow with it to help her family. 

Dolphin was 18 years old and had just been admitted to study education at her local university outside of Nairobi, Kenya.  What a loss of a sweet and special young woman.

How sad! And such a wonderful verse! If only everyone could understand that as Christians we need to welcome and care for the children.

Won't it be wonderful to see her in the time after the one we're in now?
