The hands and feetRich Stigall
From Rose, (GO Africa Orphan Care Manager)
My trip to Sudan this particular time has been a special one and one of my best moments as a member of the GO Family. I’ve had good moments and more are to come; I’ve seen HIV kids being transferred from The Father’s House to AID Child for better care; I’ve seen kids holding hands, caring for each other, laughing together and lovingly calling out for their house Mama ‘Mum’; I’ve seen a child admiring her new uniform; I’ve witnessed children feeling important and full of life because a bishop and a packed hall of people have come to watch them play or dance. All this blesses all of us to see what God is doing in these kids lives.
On my way to the airport Daniel (he was helping me navigate my way) told me how he really appreciated the vision of GO Project. (He heard about GO Project from our new partner in Torit.) I replied, “We are just trying.” He responded, “Oh, Rose, you people are not just trying, you are instead doing a very very big thing for the world; I see your organisation – even if I have not known much about it – like the hands and feet of Jesus to bring love to the orphans and vulnerable children.”
I did not comment on what he said because I had been 20 minutes late and the plane had waited for me, but it kept me very contemplative throughout my flight, and I am still pondering and praying about it…and God will, I will like to meet Daniel again!
We are so thankful that Daniel saw God moving through the lives of orphans in Torit. We are also grateful for you. Without you praying, sharing, going, loving, giving, doing, there would be no GO. Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus and helping care for orphaned and abandoned children around the world.
