Milk


Today, there are two cows and their piebald calves in a kitchen-turned-stable in southern Ethiopia. A girl with black plaits and a wide smile will milk them and carry an orange plastic bucket back to her home at the orphanage. A table ringed with tiny chairs and brown-eyed children will drink their fill, and there will be milk left over. There is a new refrigerator that will hold the extra...the extra...milk that will be sold to provide for the children, and, tomorrow, there will be more milk at their table.

Friends, thank you. I wish I could share with you the other photos...smiling faces ringing a plastic table, a cup of frothy milk under a patient mama cow, the refrigerator that will allow this gift to give in other ways. I pray that you will be blessed by knowing that in a country broken by famine, there is an orphanage of children drinking fresh milk because of your generosity and God's grace.

I wish I had more to say other than just "Praise God!!" but that's all I can think of, and all that matters!

Amazing how these obstacles to navigate on our way to piano lessons have become such a picture of God's provision and sufficiency. They look beautiful! God is good.
