So many precious girls like this one. Many taken off the streets. Hurting, angry, tough, pregnant, needy, timid, lost, seemingly unloved. In need of salvation. In need of love being shown to them. Some of these girls I have only seen once. Others, over and over. Thankful to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Will you go & love the least of these? Matthew 25:40 - "And the King shall answer and say unto them... inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these... ye have done it unto me."

    I want to leave a comment, but I am sitting here not knowing what to say… I guess that says something in itself. We can easily forget the effects of sin and how much the devil hates humanity. It brings a new gratitude for the redemption Jesus died to give us!

    So glad you can have these opportunities, Rachel! Hoping many will come to know the Father through the seeds sown and reaped!

    This photograph brings my thoughts to the deep Love and Hope that Jesus brings to us, and that He wants us, in turn, to bring it to others. I love this photograph. It’s very moving. Thank you for sharing it, Rachel. <3

    You are like the Lord seeing needs at home and abroad, bringing His healing compassion and understanding to those often deemed unworthy of the sacrifice according to the world. But you see as God sees and love ad He.

    Your picture reveals that the sorrow and the need is profound, but that hope and love are offered. It is a miniature picture of the Gospel.
    May the Lord use this as a part of sharing the Good News that where sin abounded, grace much more abounds. He has provided the Way, she just does not know it yet.
