As you can see progress is being made on the building reconstruction! The guys have been pushing through all the challenges they have encountered with grace.
The women have been on an emotional roller coaster working with the girls rescued from human trafficking. We had close to four hours of training, and the stories that have been shared with us are almost too much fathom.
Today we met the girls for the first time. As our hearts broke for the pain and sadness they have endured they were also filled with joy to see the hope that some had in their eyes. The truth is this is just the beginning of their story. We might never find out how it ends but God can make beauty from the ashes, and I can see His work at work in their lives.
Everyday we ask each other why does God have you here? It's not about a building. The building project got is here, and now we all need to figure out why. What is God trying to tell each one of us? Some of us already know, while others of us are still looking for the answer.
Please continue to pray for the these beautiful young girls. Pray that God would bring them a peace they have never experienced before. That they would feel His hand on their lives, and never doubt His love for each and every one of them.
Please continue to pray for the men who are working tirelessly without complaint. Pray for the challenges they continue to face, and most importantly, pray that God would use this work as a testimony to His glory.
