They mother the motherless, the mamas in this orphan village. The team that traveled to Jeremie, Haiti, the month before us went specifically to love on them. The photo of women washing the feet of women who wash feet nearly undid me.
These mamas carry hearts heavy with Jesus. Though some bring their own children with them, many leave them in the care of others so they can spill love into the empty, into children with no mamas or papas. (One of the mamas is going to school to become a nurse.)
They receive a small compensation along with room and board—likely pennies from our perspective. But how can mere money compare to their sacrifice?
I’m writing about these mamas today over at BibleDude. Won’t you join me there and offer a prayer for them?
Stilled and praying,
