She's Back...

When the thief takes, when our hopes caveYou build us back, You build us back...

Those of you who joined us in prayer for Marie---SHE IS BACK!  It took many home visits, lots of prayer,  and when yet another family member thought he had the right to use her as his little toy--- the mom finally decided to act on behalf of Marie, choosing the safety of her daughter over the household help she was able to provide. ---"What the enemy meant for her harm, God used for her good." Genesis 50

"She is clothed with strength and dignity and can laugh at the days to come." Proverbs 31:25

We are full of love and compassion for this mother as she is only able to dream and imagine what she has knowledge of.  The scripture says, “My people parish for lack of knowledge.”  --She grew up in a very deep, dark pit and has a hard time believing that the light can possibly penetrate her darkness.  But we know the truth and we are determined to share our light with her.  May this chain of darkness and bondage be forever broken.

Redeemer, redeem us Restorer, restore us Oh build us back Though the mountains be shaken, the hills be removed Your unfailing love remains After all that’s been taken, Your promise, still sacred You build us back---Build us Back song lyrics from the Newsboys

12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
