“The other day I was jogging on the airstrip, and three little girls joined me. As I was huffing and puffing to keep up, Adopo (far left) says, “Keoi (Moi language doesn’t have r’s or l’s so my name sounds a bit different here), do you realize all three of us don’t have mothers?” Me, “Oh, you’re right. Awww.” Menadi says, “Well, actually Pideondo’s (middle) mom abandoned her, but our two moms died.”
Me, “Oh so true, hmmmm. Do you girls have sad hearts because you don’t have moms?” Wh
All three, “Why would we be sad? We have the Creator God as our “mom” and Protector. Jesus is like our “mom.” All we can do is thank Him and offer our bodies and hearts to Him.”
Their joyful, thankful attitudes convicted me. May we willingly give of ourselves however the Lord wants to use us.”
I love this email that Carolyn Crockett sent out. The understanding and hope that so many have in the remote areas of the world is incredible.
I visited this group 2 times while we made the Awayo video. You can see that video here: https://usa.ntm.org/mission-videos-and-mission-photos/awayo-fear-to-faith-english
