Roy and Sue are visiting their daughter and son-in-law in South Africa this month. Here is a brief update from Roy:
We are doing well. The trip is a little hard on us ‘old folks’, but we are surviving. Yesterday, I again had the privilege of working along side Lori in Kya Sands Squatter Camp. It is a heartbreaking, dismal slum. The children, ages 3 to about 9 with a few 1 and 2 year olds mixed in, are beautiful but so needy.We did some fun games and a lesson and then gave each child a half sandwich, a cup of Milo, and an apple. They devoured the food, and I cried. It takes so little to bring a smile to the face of a child. As poor as they are, a hug and a taste of food seems to provide enough to merit a smile.
Lord, please help us at NHIM to continue to try to find ways to serve ‘the least of these’.
