When I first lived in Baseco in 2009 I met a lady called Lisa, she actually lived across from Praise House in the slum.
She was heavily pregnant, she was never a regular in church and floated around the edges of the Christians…..but I suppose because she lived so close to the hub of Jn14:12 she was known.
There were some things that we suspect Lisa was involved in which bordered on backyard abortion practices…..however…..
She attended faithfully all of my Birthing classes, which touched on life and the miracle of birth and the precious babies we are responsible for.
Before I left I felt to support her with some money to go towards her hospital birth (this was pre-BBB days) and a ligation, this baby was her 4th.
She had her baby MJ (he is now over 2 years old) at Fabella and had a ligation.
I have seen her every visit back to Baseco, she was always thrilled to see us and showed off MJ proudly with tears in her eyes…..
This visit I noticed another change……
She (along with many other families) lost her house in the Baseco Fire (you can read about the fire here)
The Relief from Australia rebuilt this whole area…..
She has a new house,
BUT what is significant is that she has an active Bible Study in her house
Whilst I was there she attended every church service.
That was a change!
Acts of Kindness work……….
The Bible says more specifically
New King James Version (NKJV)
10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
Never tire of doing good,
Yes in these countries,
But do not forget where we are
It works in Australia too
