This week a young man in Congo approached our cooperative for help. He never attended school. He had no home, no food, and no money. Mama Aroyo told me that 'when he knocked on the door of our shop it was as if Christ himself came begging.' She and the other women of our cooperative welcomed him in and offered to teach him some basic sewing skills. He is now a part of our community. Everyday, he has a group of joyful young ladies who talk with him, teach him, laugh with him, and care for him. And I think to myself: Who am I that God has put these women in my life? To see how easy they love and serve others when they themselves live in poverty. My heart is full.
