Sick kids

"Great crowds came to him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others, and laid them at his feet; and he healed them." Matthew 15:30

On one of our days in Swaziland we had the chance to visit some sick kids in the government hospital in Mbabane (the capital city). Unbelievable conditions for these poor little ones. Many moms have stayed there night and day with their sick child for weeks sleeping in chairs or on the floor. During our visit we prayed with them, gave them coloring books & crayons, sang songs with them, took Polaroid pictures that they could keep for their very own, brought some much needed supplies for the nursing stations and just hung out for a while...trying to bring even a little joy into the midst of their dire situation. Our hearts were broken, but also enlarged. Truly we were the ones that were blessed. So when you think of it...please join us in bringing them in prayer to Jehovah Rapha (The Lord is our healer).
Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world.
red and yellow, black and white
they are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

Here's some pictures:
