Orphan in Matewere
This is just one example of so many, the needs are so great. During the outreach in Matewere, the team found a girl who was crying. Asking why, she said her mother had died intantly when she was struck by lightning. Her father died shortly after thatt of HIV/Aids. She was left alone and rejected by both grandparents, so an unrelated old woman agreed to keep her. The girl said that she often dreams of her dead mother and has many nightmares. Facing child abuse, she doesn’t go to school.
The Wheresoever team prayed for her and the Spirit of God spoke to the team that we should help her. The next day, the African team returned with gifts of clothes, a blanket and a little money for her. They spoke to the old woman who is keeping the girl. explaining that she must go to school. Now she has started not only going to school, but also going to church. Wheresoever not only preaches the gospel, they also meet the needs of the needy, showing the physical love of Jesus Christ. It was not very much, but the small gifts made a huge impact on both the girl and the old lady. They were desperate, but now they have the peace of the Lord. Both the woman and the girl were among the people who received Jesus for the first time that day.
