The Story Behind the Picture

It seems these precious girls have become our poster children as this photo has been used in a lot of our ministry materials besides being featured in my side bar. We just adore this photo!

This picture was captured 2 years ago or so; we were having a fun day for the children in a near by squatter camp (poverty striken area). Like so many of the children living in S. Africa these girls plight is a difficult one yet they seem to beam with joy!

Thought I'd share some of the beautiful faces we see everyday here in Africa. Aren't they precious?!

Great picture!

I so admire what you guys are doing for the people of South Africa! Your love for them shines through whenever you talk about your ministry. :)

do children like this have families? they aren't orphans are they?

mother teresa so vividly believed that you could see the eyes of Jesus in the poorest of the poor...and it is so true. you can see the light of Christ beaming in their eyes and faces. a Christ that you introduced them to, no doubt.

God Bless your ministry Michelle!

Hi Michelle,

Wanted you to know that I saw your sweet husband a few minutes ago. Isn't that crazy that he was just here in our house in Seattle? Many, many blessings on him as he ministers to so many these next two weeks. I pray that lots of hearts will be opened to God and more godly hearts be burdened for South Africa as they hear Rich speak. Bruce and I love you two so much! Deb
