This is what love looks like

Today our team visited the "comforter" children's home, which is home to 32 children, half of whom are HIV positive.
Hope's Gate brings volunteer teams to homes like these to encourage, help and consistently let these kids know they are not alone in the world. I was able to pass on some special photos, letters & gifts from a recent volunteer team I brought from Texas. I started thinking this is really what love looks like.
There is a little girl at the Comforter home whose life has been drastically impacted by the AIDS virus. I noticed she was a little sad when I first arrived...not her normal smiling face. I had a picture for her though in my bag. It was a picture sent to her by Kelly in Texas who met her in November. You see Kelly can't forget * Manju and today that love & commitment made a sad little girl smile.

I don't suppose they did any of their songs for you? I loved the one they did about everyone but Jesus letting them down or something like that. I would love to see them doing that again. It was so cute.

I see my precious Sheetal...oh my heart...I would love to be there but it's nice to know you are there and see pictures of all the wonderful children that I love and miss so much! They are such a joy. Dr. Evans is an amazing woman! So is Patty Bauman! Love you!
