Thank you all so much for the support, we have been blown away by the tidal wave of support Heath enjoys that has spilled over onto us. It’s almost comical to think of this poor little guy, minding his own business, totally unaware or the shed tears, prayed prayers, sacrificed dollars, and mountains being moved on his behalf, and all of this before we ever knew about him. Not many people on this earth are at the same time so lonely and destitute, and yet so loved and advocated for. If he only knew..
For reasons sufficient to Himself, God has apparently decided to rescue this one particular boy, who is utterly and completely helpless to do anything about his situation. God puts on display His Power and Glory by conquering mighty things with lowly things, by valuing those things which have been despised by man in his wisdom, and using them to shame that wise man. When we take up the case of the widow and orphan, we imitate God in His care for the helpless. And I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that He has commanded that we do this not only for the benefit of those He would have us help, but in order to remind us of our own state as sinners in need of redemption, utterly helpless to do anything about our situation, and we might rejoice in our salvation through Jesus.
We are so glad to be able to build upon the work that so many have done before us, and participate and rejoice in this work, so that His Name may be praised. He has enriched our lives already through the baby steps we’ve taken so far, and we look forward to what is to come with fear, and yet hope that is holding it down.
Soli Deo Gloria
