After having my first child my love for children changed. I had always loved children but I now had a different kind of love, a mothers love. I never knew I was capable of loving someone so much until I became a mother. With being a mom and loving my own kids, I have realized that my heart and love for all children had grown.
I have found God giving me the opportunity to learn and grow with the kids in my community in the last three years. He has given me the chance to babysit six different children who have touched my heart deeply. He has given me the opportunity to work with kids at my church through the Awana program. Last week my van was full,6 kids piled in to go to Awana, were they would hear about God and learn scriptures!
I wasn't sure at first why God kept placing me around all these children. I now know it wasn't just for them but for me. He has shown me love through these kids. As much as I have desired to be a blessing to them they have been a blessing to me in turn. And I believe that He has done this to prepare my heart for the orphans of Kenya.
He has allowed me to love and teach the children in my home and in my community so that I can go love and teach the children of Africa!
