The picture is dark because it was late by the time Mehboob and Adnan reached this little lady in a village outside of Sailkot. But she was so grateful they came!
She has been a widow, Mehboob tells us, for a long time and has had very little opportunity in those years to earn a living. She sometimes is able to get work in homes of the well-to-do, but with the coronavirus shut-down, even that sporadic income is non-existent.
She has been living in poverty for a number of years, but now her living conditions are desperate. She told Mehboob and Adnan she had spent many days in recent weeks searching for food and begging from people, most of whom rejected her.
In despair, she told the men she has simply been waiting for a miracle or even an angel to provide her with food. When Mehboob and Adnon gave her the rice, beans, lentils, flour, oil, and other items, she was astounded. She had her miracle and will never forget the two men who, to her, were angels sent by God himself.
Please join us in praying that God will use these acts of kindness to help people realize that God loves them enough to hear their prayers and provide in surprising ways.
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." - James 1:27
