When we think of Bible heroes we tend to go the David, Samson, Peter and Paul way! But I have had the privilege to see three girls in England in action ……. in 2007! They are from Godalming, England and they don’t just talk they put their words into action.
The youngest is only 4 years old and Daisy (7) raised more than £300 pounds for orphan care in Mozambique all alone.
Meet Mimy (4), Lilly above and Daisy below. Real heroes in the faith. They have just made it possible for 40 leaders in Mozambique to own their own Shona Bibles with special bookmarks .
Daisy (7) above, felt that she should do more and organized a cake sale at her school. Not just did she had to get the Principal’s approval she got the school, her parents and some other unchurched people involved to help her meet her objective ……. to help orphans in Mozambique. She baked and sold nearly £300 worth of cake. The money was immediately transferred to Mozambique where it was used to help buy blankets for orphans. Some of these funds will also be used for their Xmas party at the end of the year.
These girls has made a huge impact because they cared! In God’s eyes (and all the kids and pastors in Mozambique) they are the real faith heroes of our day! They have touched more lives in their small lives than many in a life time. It is never too late …. look around you ….. someone is in need of a smile, a good word, a hug …… just for someone to be there.
Let me leave you all with a contemporary blessing! (And this one specially goes to these 3 girls) Thanks David and Kate you have fantastic kids!
May you grow up to be righteous,
May you grow up to be true,
May you always know the truth
And see the light surrounding you.
May you always be courageous,
Stand upright and be strong,
May you stay forever young.
We are all back safely in Mozambique after a long and tiring visit to South Africa. Watch this space for great news!
