James 1:27a Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress....
Swazi women have heavy loads figuratively and literally--many are widows and caring for others children as well as their own, or their husbands have left them. This is compounded by the fact that 25-40% of them or their ...children are HIV postive or have full-blown AIDS, as well as severe poverty.
God has placed the desire on my heart to share the love of Jesus with them by visiting the sick and lonely, sharing God's Word with them (especially those who can't read it on their own), praying with them, discipling them, and encouraging them in practical ways.
