I had alot of time the other day to ponder the last seven weeks as I sat in the car, stuck in the mud on a little road in the village.............When children have been abandoned by family, they need help. When a young teenage girl is pregnant and has been abandoned by family, her village, and society, she needs help. When a village widow is left alone with several grandchildren to feed, she needs help. When an abandoned, single mom lives in an 8 x 10 hut with six children (one with pneumonia and one with malaria), she needs help.
They need HOPE and they need intervention. Intervenion: the act of intervening. When I looked up intervene in the dictionary, it says: to arbitrate, to occur or be between two things: to come between disputing people, groups, etc., and to intercede and mediate. That is what these abandoned, hurting people need. Whether they are pregnant and abandoned or elderly trying to make ends meet: they need intervention.
Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow." Isaiah 1: 17
