Imago Dei

In the brief time I had with her, she wasn’t just a recipient of a bed, or an orphan, or even a Ugandan child living in the bush. She was Nancy. Eight year old Nancy, a girl who was loved, who is special to me and to our Jesus. I asked Nancy if she had any prayer requests and she told me she wanted me to pray that she can help other people. My God, melt my heart! Through a translator, I told dear Nancy that God gave her a gift…a gift of her heart, and He wants to use that heart to love others. I took my hand and placed it over her heart. I told her that God would use her in mighty ways and that she needed to be strong, listen to His calling, and be obedient to it, and she will be a great servant of God. Today, God opened my eyes. He broke my heart. I heard His voice and He spoke to me that I am to advocate for the Nancys of this world…the children of Uganda. We are called to minister to the needs of the widowed and orphaned. We are commanded to aid the Nancys of this world. The question is, will you help them? Will you walk beside these children, supplying their need of a bed, the only comfort they may ever feel? Will you join me in showing them the love of Jesus Christ? Will you tell them they are worthy of care? Will you? Tammy Pryor June, 2016 Gulu Team]]>
