Our why!

1 Tim 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:

Today something happened at the gate of ZHM. A young mother, with baby in hand, pleaded at the front gate for some attention. The baby in her hand covered with infected sores on portions of his little face and body. The infant was weak from hunger also. The mother pleaded to be taken to the hospital to get treatment for her young child---she herself having no means to do so on her own. And what can we do but heed to her request? (see picture below)

This is not the first time this has happened, in fact it happens often. Mothers young and old have run to our doors, carrying sickly and underfed children seeking immediate assistance (Food, money, shelter, prayer). At times we are ready and equipped to address the situation brought before us. Other times we ourselves, in moments of lack, struggle to find the right means. However we always persist to find a solution, no matter what comes. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge that it is the times when we are most inconvenienced with a request, that we are most reminded of the importance of our work here at ZHM. Mark 14:7 says "For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good:..." and over the years we have been first hand witnesses, that this word is true. The poor in health, the poor in means, and the poor in spirit can always be found, its reality. Yet, if the poor are always with us, do the poor always get help ? We at ZHM have grappled with this question of reality, making it our mission to be a "always" type of help in a world where there is always a need. We therefore encourage anyone who recognizes that there are needs to be met, to be that "always" type of help especially during this holiday season. Just look around and be attentive to fulfill a need.

Thank you, Jesus! I pray for myself and others to be given more grace to give, even out of lack. God bless Zion Highway Mission and our wonderful visionary and leader, Pastor Pauline Bankesha. More grace, more power, more strength to you woman of God! God bless the children (and workers) of ZHM and of Burundi and Africa at large. Emmanuel!
