Today was our first day of working with the children. Even though we only had a few hours to play with the children, it was extremely moving. The kids in eSwatini may not be rich materialistically, but they sure are rich spiritually. It made me realize how privileged Americans truly are & how much we take for granted. In America we get upset if we come home to our house & we don’t have the specific kind of dinner we were hoping for, but here kids are grateful if they even get to have dinner. Going to the homestead truly broke my heart knowing that I couldn’t do anything to help, except to pray. In America it seems like we believe our financial or social status will rank us in heaven. Here, the kids don’t care what they wear, how they get to the care point, or how many friends they have. The kids are selfless, and have a thirst for love from anyone because most of them do not get love at home. In America, we take things for granted; like a roof over our head; three meals per day; attending school with real blackboards; clothes that aren’t covered by holes; and the love of parents. My hope is for Americans to be hungry for God’s word like the people here in Swaziland are.
