refuge

boycrop

You are a tower of refuge to the poor, O Lord,
a tower of refuge to the needy in distress.
You are a refuge from the storm
and a shelter from the heat.
-Isaiah 25:4 (NLT)

I promised myself before I came to Africa that I would show y'all the joy that the people here possess, despite their conditions. Yes, there is much sadness and hardship here. However, there is also beauty everywhere you look. Take this little boy, for instance. I was walking through the slums in Jinja, and his face lit up when I raised my camera in his direction. I serve a God who has not forgotten about His children...
