Joy Will Come

Just like every other job or place of employment, working can become tedious--a checklist, if you will. Lately, I have had my checklist of things to accomplish, and I've been carefully sticking to it because I know I won't remember everything I have to complete. The unfortunate part is that even in ministry, where my heart is so heavy for these kids, I can get wrapped up in the "list" of things I need to do today. I forget the purpose and I forget the emotional connection I have to this country and the children. I get so wrapped up that I'm rushing around and I don't even focus on glorifying God in my day.

He loves this country and Satan has such a hold on it, but I feel like it's getting to the point where God is saying, "Enough is enough." I believe when each of our 500 Americans leave Zambia, their hearts will be broken for these beautiful children in such need. I know they have heard so many stories about these children and this country…
