Very Hard News

Mission work is not always sunshine and rainbows...yesterday, I got some very heart shattering news. One of our 11 year old street girls was raped by a 17 year old. What breaks my heart even more is that I know and love dearly the street boy who did it and he used to come to our mission house but stopped coming months ago and started hanging out with the wrong group of friends. Now, I have 2 street kids both lost and broken for very different reasons. I would give anything to be in the Dominican right now to be able to scoop my street girl up that I know is so hurt and scared and just hold her, love her, tell her she is beautiful, and that she is always my girl, but most importantly God washes her clean. I would also give anything to be in the Dominican to hug my street boy that I know is so lost and broken for different reasons and tell him that I still love him and that more importantly God still loves him and will always forgive him. My heart is so broken today for my street kids and their families! Please join me in prayer for my kids as I believe there is power in prayer where 2 or more are gathered! #missionaryatheart
