Let the children come!

"But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." Luke 18:16

People keep asking us; "What would you say has impacted you the most from your trip?". Well we've thought about that question alot and realized that it's not really 'what'....but 'who'. Without question I think we'd all say it's 'the children'. Their smiles. Their hugs. Their laughter. Their love. Their resiliance. Their hope. We cannot stop thinking about them. With the HIV-AIDS virus affecting over 60% of the population in this tiny kingdom of Swaziland, many of them are already orphans. A 15yr old today is given just a 6% chance of living to be 29! What staggering statistics! We cannot stop praying for them. These children are the future....and by God's grace they will become the godly leaders of tomorrow. Nothing is impossible with God! Yes Jesus, call them to yourself......and may they all, every last one of them, come to you!

Some of those faces:
