Send in the Reserves!
Today Zaya saw a letter at Grandma Lilibeth's house from the charity organization, Samaritan's Purse. The outside of the envelope mentioned the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and how they were being persecuted, killed or sold into slavery. He told me that we should pray for them, and I agreed.
When we came home, we found a similar letter in our mailbox, so I read the information inside. At devotions tonight we prayed for the Christians and others that are going through such awful persecution right now, and I tried to use the map to help the kids understand who the people are and where they live.
When Mim prayed, she asked God to send heroes and angels to the DRC. Zaya also prayed for heroes and angels, and just as Mommy was starting to get a little teary with it all, he said,
"and please send some of those snakes that you sent on the Israelites...if you still have them. Amen."
Daddy assured him that God could just make new ones if need be.
