We may be a small ministry in our own sight, but to some 20 widows and their 76 children we recently reached out to, we meant the whole of heaven to them! Scattered around in various communities in rural Ghana, these twenty widows and their children were not dreaming of any assistance from anywhere for a week’s supply of foodstuffs.
It was life as usual – sometimes a small meal now and then, here and there, and most times off to bed on empty stomachs! They just didn’t know where their next meals were going to come from. Then out of the blue, our volunteers located them and they were blessed with packaged foodstuffs that would last each a whole week!
This was unheard of! It has never happened to them like that before! That was heaven-sent! It was all joy, smiles and laughter as each received a package of love wrapped from heaven! Filled with praises, they thanked our volunteers and ministry for the wonderful assistance given them. One neat thing about the packaging was, that it was an all-male volunteers who went to the market place, bought the foodstuffs, transported, packaged and delivered them to the widows with love!
James 1:27 says, “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, [and] to keep himself unspotted from the world.” Our plans to reach out to yet another group widows, who are some of the poorest of the poor in rural Ghana. To this lot, the coming packages are the best things to ever happen to them in years! This is made possible by readers such as yourself, who by your lovingkindness partner with us to practice pure religion.
