After some coffee and breakfast, we were rejuvenated and Michael led us in an appropriate devotional for the day.
Jeremiah 1: “Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. See, I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.”
Sometimes it is difficult to know the right things to say to people who suffer so much, but God often puts the right words in our mouths, and sometimes just listening, giving a hug, praying together or looking someone straight in the eyes and letting them know that you see them, you feel them, is enough.
All of the stations were full until 5pm. We unfortunately saw more sick babies today, most stricken with sickle cell and malaria. Many concerned parents came to the prayer tent to ask for prayers for their children. There was also an increase in elderly, especially at the reading glasses line. It’s always so cute to see them trying on the glasses, then sheepishly smile in embarrassment each time they have to go up a strength. They are always filled with gratitude to be able to read clearly.
