Please never let me become "okay". Please never dull the shock of sickness nor the tragicness of situations because "this is Kenya". Continue to break my heart for what breaks Yours. Use all of the things and situations I find unpleasant and uncomfortable to teach me something about You, help someone else and to learn something along the way. Help me "raise" my voice more for them and educate others along the way. While my heart is often burdened I KNOW education and real change is possible Lord. Guide me and teach me so that I may guide and teach others. Once I asked someone "if this gets easier?", please never let it get easier because I don't want to dismiss things that can be helped or changed. Don't allow me to give up when things seem unlikely. Please calm my worry and anxiousness, but always cause me to dig deep and learn more about whatever is causing an unsettledness in me. Never allow me to see someone and think they can't be helped Lord, for I know with You all things are possible. Thank you, thank you so much for allowing me to be here and take part in the great work that You are doing here. Thank you for allowing me love on these children, for even just a moment, it is a huge blessing. Thank you for changing my heart and keeping me steady, on my own none of this would be possible. Thank You, thank You, thank You.
