Learning More About God's Kingdom

Last week we had an opportunity to help out a local Kabiye lady named Evangelique. She is bound to this hand-powered tricycle because of a bout with polio early in her life. She made the effort to make the trek down about 1/2 mile of bumpy dirt road to our home to ask for help. She has an open and badly infected sore on her foot that is causing her alot of pain. She needed some money for meds, and while we were not able to help her with everything that she needed, we were able to bless her in Jesus' name. To show her appreciation, she returned to our house about a week later. Our fleshly instinct was to assume that she was there to ask for more money, but God humbled us when she simply dropped by to say, "Thank you and God bless you."
Please pray for Evangelique. She is a sweet spirit who courageously faces a difficult life each and every day. May God bless our friendship with her, and may He continue to teach us about His kingdom through encounters with sweet Kabiye people like our friend Evangelique.
