Rubble and stone mixed with dust do stifle,
Somewhere a child cries unceasing,
Nearby a man briskly walks by with a rifle,
From the desolation God’s work is increasing.
The children cry holding our hand,
War and devastation bring dark sadness,
Desolate and barren is their land,
Their dreams whither as each day passes.
A victory by the hand of God today,
Giving warmth in a time of need,
Formed by someone who chose to pray,
A blessing requested has been freed.
Earnestly, it takes the work of another,
Teaching their hearts not to be made of stone,
Eagerly, caring for a sister and brother,
Learning to live by the standard God has shown.
Taking the easy road was never an option,
Using God’s yoke to carry the heavy loads,
His Grace given through the Adoption,
Good News to those on wide and rough roads.
Giving of ourselves to wipe away dust caked tears,
Obedience to God by always loving our neighbor,
Heed the call by God to comfort a child’s fears,
It is through His Redemption and Will that we labor.
Thank you Victor for all the work you and your team do to bring the love and comfort of the Risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ into areas of the world that need it most.
