Beauty Rises From the Ashes
|Mama Sera with her Mama Pam|
Our relationship with Sera began in December of 2009. It has gone through a lot since that time. We take her as our daughter, but she accepted this relationship without the benefit of growing from infancy with us. That would have been a big advantage for us and for her. In addition, she suffered without a normal childhood in a vacuum without love. Her past should have resulted in a sad ending.
But God, is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead! It is only by God's grace that we have been saved. (Ephesians 2:5-4 NLT)
|Gifts from Sera!|
Last week Sera made us proud. Most of those who know about Sera know her as the young mother of 19 former street boys over the past four years. It was the heart of compassion that God put within her that gave her this huge responsibility. But a heart of compassion cannot stop there. It will find expression in various venues.
