"This is how grace works; it enters the soul, penetrates the heart, saturates the conscience, abides in the memory, affects the affections, gives understanding to the understanding, and imparts real life to the heart, which is the seat of life." Spurgeon

Sharon is a 10 year old girl who suffers from constant severe back pain, chest pain and headaches. We don't know her whole story, but she appears malnourished and deformed. At one point this week she collapsed while acting out the part of Jesus in a skit. Claire carried her to the nurse station. She vomited and stayed in the resting area for the day and complained of her head hurting. When Mama Margaret looked at her she believed she got sick from her body temperature being so low in the mornings. She said this is common for these orphans as they wake early to do chores and have usually one set of clothes. If they are not up early they lose their meal. She lives with her Grandmother who has taught her about Jesus, so she was the one in our group who participated in a lot of the discussion. Sharon and Claire were fast friends! She loves to be held and is a real sweetheart! Please pray for God to heal Sharon's back and head pain.

  1. Oh Holly, this is my favorite picture of you honey. It shows your love for these dear children and what a precious child of God you are. I am bursting with joy as your Mother and so proud to call you my child. Tearful, Mom
