I just stumbled onto this information - makes my heart ache!
This is the area of Africa that I feel called to - at SOME point.
I recently told Rich that I don't know if I EVER want to go back to Africa.
The PAIN I experience with what I see and hear there is just about too much to handle...
Of course, I WILL go back.
I HAVE to.
(as of today, there are 58 children sponsored by our church-members in the "Hope In Villages+" project and this will have to be followed up -
especially the + part...)
But not soon.
Just a 2 1/2 week trip has pretty much consumed my life for 2 months.
And my family needs me.
But nonetheless, my heart breaks for these dear people in West-Africa.
LORD, have mercy!
