Some things we just don’t understand…

Some things we just don’t understand…

I’m not even sure where to begin with this one…..

We arrived at Timbutini this morning to see hundreds of children eagerly awaiting for their “Fun Day” to begin. As I stepped off the bus, I was called into the church by Allison (our sweet Alabama missionary). One of our children at Ruby’s carrpoint had been murdered during the night. She and her mother were shot at their home. The mother is in critical condition. We were all in shock. There have been so many tragedies occur on this trip with our children. Abandonment, abuse and now murder. Why are these things happening? Why?

We are surely meant to be here and we are clearly doing what God wants us to do. The enemy is trying to discourage us with these horrible things we are experiencing. But we know our God is greater. Our God is stronger. We know He is sovereign. He is forever faithful. We know that tonight Tema is resting in His arms. She is in no more danger, no more pain. We have to hold onto that tonight. We have been with her at the carepoint this week. She was so full of life. So full of love and joy. Robin spent a lot of time with her reading Bible stories to her. Tema didn’t have a “special friend” so she wanted to write a letter to Robin. Please see the sweet letter below and also her picture. Tomorrow a few of us are going to visit the family members and tell them stories of this precious child. Please pray for strength for us as we try to provide any comfort we can to this family. And for each of us as we try to process this terrible tragedy. We love you all……
