In the group of neighbourhood children we minister to in our mid week outreach kids club, there is a young girl from a foster home. When we first met her she was so shy and withdrawn, she could have easily “fallen through the cracks.”
Week after week, the ladies who run the craft time and the men who run the sports time, engaged her and showed her genuine love and concern, until the time came that she took one of the lead roles in our Christmas concert. She shone in her role and was all smiles.
Now a couple of years later, she still talks about her role in the Christmas concert. Where ever life takes her, I am confident that she will remember that during this season of her life she experienced LOVE.
