When Little Children Give :)

Mindblown. Today I was in the outskirts of a slum township visiting families and playing with the children. One of the girls comes to me and speaks English quite well for a ten year old girl brought up in such austere conditions. Anyway, she asks me, 'Sistah, can I go get my Bhaibera (Bible)? I want give you!' My jaw dropped at her generosity. I was awestruck. She ran off and soon came back with a Shona booklet that was certainly not a full Bible. But it contained Bible stories in Shona. She offered to read to me her favorite one of Jonah! I was mindblown. She wanted to give this, her only form of a Bible, to me!? I could cry. 

God have mercy on us, who have so much, but hold on so tightly compared to these ones who give so freely out of their most precious of possessions.

The Difference

Wayfarers walk by faith and dream with eyes wide open. Living simply, they go places, break barriers, embrace people, and build bridges. They're cool if things go wrong; it's the journey that counts. They like being on their own, but love the company of like-minded people anytime! Wayfarers love to hang with the locals, make music in unusual places, and share stories. They're creative about ways to touch the world both on the home turf and on the road. Wayfarers are on the life-long odyssey of discovery with hearts anchored in Faith, Hope and Love.

About the Author

Hello, I'm Janielle. I’m a muso based in Melbourne. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark spiritual conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a mission of reconciliation through acts of justice, truth and compassion among the young & free. Being a nomad at heart, I find ‘home’ when I stay with people on the ground, encounter the culture & discover what life's like for others.
