Well, it has been over a week since we came home and Seelmapur suddenly seems very far away. However in my heart and mind the people we met live on and in many ways I miss them and being there so much. The staff team in the slum were an incredible group of people, and showed us God's love in amazing ways...in the way they welcomed and loved us, in the way they bless their community, in working hard with unwaivering determination, and in the way they worshipped and prayed. We pray that God will continue to use and bless them and that he will pour his love, healing and compassion on Seelmapur.
At the end of the week, we had a wonderful celebration together....in reminds me of the party that must be going on in heaven when lost souls are found.
Here are a few photos of our time in the slum...
Please pray for justice and for a fairer distribution of wealth....and that God further softens our hearts towards the lost and the broken and the poor.
