Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this : to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. -James 1:27

What is the greatest commandment?

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” - Mark 12:30-31

In the village, education sometimes comes secondary. Though the country offers free education, the stresses of the cost of school uniform, shoes, and even school supplies can be too much for a family to allow all their children to go to school.

Backpacks of Promise:
Some of Lulwanda's wonderful friends from Books are the Beginning supplied our LCH children with backpacks and scholastic material to give out to some of the students in the surrounding village. 

100 backpacks; 100 students = lots of joyous hearts encouraged in their education

My group climbed halfway up the side of a big hill to reach some neighbors who were so excited to see us, much less to receive a backpack of supplies. In appreciation the last two families gave us 3 chickens 

It was a wonderful day to love our neighbors as we have see and receive the Father's love everyday.
