A Thank you? Yes Please!

Standard

As I’m writing this we are having a fantastic thunderstorm! I LOVE the sound of rain on a tin roof and it’s raining HARD right, not to mention the loud thunder and bright lightening. This also means our dog (who is terrified of loud noises) will find some new screens to destroy tonight 😦

 

Anyway to get back on subject have you ever gone out of your way for someone and instead of them saying thank you they don’t say anything or worse they complain. This is what it’s like at baby washing. I LOVE washing the babies but sometimes it bothers me that the mothers never say thanks and more often then not complain about the clothes their child is put in and want more, always more. Entitlement is a big part of the culture here, it’s like yes I’m very poor and need a lot so I’m entitled to have whatever you have to give me and then some!

 

Another thing that is hard about baby washing is that I want to do more then just wash these babies, I want to “ rescue” them from their current situation and take them home with me b/c I think that would be better. But I must remember that God put them in their situation, and he is watching over them better then I ever could, not to mention I don’t have room. We ran out of water today, so there were some kids to didn’t get washed and seeing them left SO DIRTY just broke my heart!

 

Also(and most importantly) what about Jesus?! No one is evangelizing ( to the mothers and older kids) while we are washing. So do they think we are just nice people? What is the point if their hearts are not being changed! Someone needs to tell them! So if you could join with me in prayer that God would raise up someone to tell these women about Jesus so He can meet the needs of their souls which is much more important then the needs of their bodies!

  1. Thank you for your willing heart to wash and serve dearest Heather. INDEED, we are to pray to the LORD of the harvest to send more workers, because the fields are ripe with the harvest. Carmen again comes to mind…. 🙂 We love you guys.
