Hope

hopeless to hope.

Zambia’s median age is 16.7. It is truly a country of kids. Most of which are orphans that are beaten and raped nightly. If they are fortunate, they receive food once a day.To the friends and family members they are left with they are considered a burden, told they are a curse, and that they should commit suicide or leave.These are little kids!

Possibilities of hope for girls is even worse than boys, because without an education they have no options to get a job that provides them with the money they need to survive. So the cycle of prostitution, poverty, sickness and disease is what they see in their future. They feel hopeless without going to school, which isn’t free.

Today the girls shared with me their pain., fears, and stories.Afterwards I sat with my ten girls and we read one of the verses that I have held on to in my darkest times.

Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

We sponsor a handful of these girls and seem to be gathering more each day. If you want to send a girl to school and provide them with one meal a day, contact me and I can tell you more about what $44 a month does. We have nine to find sponsors for.

I have heard it said a million times before, but now these girls are not just numbers and statistics, they are precious girls who just want a different future. Sponsorship could mean the difference between life and death.
