Jesus Loves the Little Children
Tomorrow the Children of the World Choir will be singing at our church. We have the privilege of hosting Lawrence and Daniel. They seem like regular boys that Christopher might know from school. And for those of you that know Christopher... these boys are actually more active, energetic and out-going than he is! But these are boys who have become orphans due to AIDS. Of course, we do not talk of the past with them. We talk of riding bikes, and basketball, and fun stuff. They call us... Uncle and Auntie. Oh, I love to hear them call me "Auntie"!
They are upstairs having a little "nap"... part of their routine. Tomorrow they will minister to us in song and dance and then be on their way. It's funny... at first I think we're doing them a favor by having them stay at our home... and then I realize that they are they ones doing us a favor... broadening our lives... and our hearts... I know they will not necessarily remember us... but... we will never forget them.
