Searching

Agnes


Today Kadison and I walked into church and it was packed with hundreds of orphans.  We wandered through the crowd searching for a little girl that I had only seen in pictures, Agnes.

It was one year ago that Kadison was in Zambia and was Agnes’s camp counselor. AT the end of their week together Agnes was in tears.  She came to Kadison crying and begging for her help. “Help me” were her words and as Kadison called me that night we knew we needed to do all we could do to help Agnes.

At nine she had been exposed to things no child should ever experience. After Kadison applied through Family Legacy to have her home investigated, it was confirmed her circumstances were dire and she needed to be removed as soon as possible.Because of my parents generosity we were able to say yes to the financial commitment it would take for Agnes to be helped and cared for. Within a week she was are and in the care of Family Legacy.

Throughout the year we received a couple of precious notes from Agnes and updates about her health. In December a new home was built on the ministries grounds and she was moved into her new permanent home with a “house mom” and “eleven” sisters. A home, clothing, food, a bathroom, her very own bed, and most importantly safety and the knowledge of God’s love for her.

And here we are in church on Father’s Day 2015 trying to locate a little girl who is finally experiencing the pure love of a father, our heavenly father.

A father who will never leave us.

A father who loves us.

A father who provides, protects, and allows us to be called HIS CHILDREN.

Then we saw her, tiny, reserved, but smiling ear to ear as she grabbed Kadison’s hand, my heart melted once again.


James 1:27

Pure and lasting religion in the sight of God our father means that we must care for the orphans and widows in their troubles and refuse to let the world corrupt us.
