We went to dinner this weekend with a lovely family. We met the Cerny’s at least 10 years ago; their kids couldn’t have been more than 6 and 8. Now their oldest, Sara, is 18 and about to graduate and head off to college. It doesn’t seem possible!
Sara and her youth group just got back from a trip to Romania. She worked with kids in an orphanage, visited children at the hospital, and helped kids in a Gypsy village. The students gave their testimonies, handed out blankets and conducted a VBS for the kids.
Sara said it was FREEZING, and here she is holding a precious child that’s wearing one, thin, ripped shirt. How sad is that? How blessed are we?
Sara has a heart for God and it blesses everyone she knows. From the special-needs children that she works with at school, to my daughter who Sara treats like a princess. I am so proud of her! And it encourages me to know that you can raise good, God-loving children in this crazy world.
