the Lord make His face shine upon you...

It burdened me to walk down the street and see the little ones with dirt and flies all over their face. We stopped to give some food and clothes to this one family on the road in Lalibela. I asked this woman if I could clean her boy's face as it was covered with flies. I can only imagine how good it felt to have his face clean! I pray it relieved him of the flies, if only for a couple of hours...

Numbers 6:25 - 27
25 the LORD make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;

26 the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace."


  1. Beautiful! You have amazing compassion. God bless you.
