Elder Hatch and I were up on the rooftop of our apartment building and I caught this beautiful site. The lady out front is leading the three blind people down the road. This is an all too familiar site here in the Congo. We are living in a world where this is not the exception, it is common and very familiar. I don't like to take pictures because I don't want them to think I look down on them. I want to take pictures because I am amazed at what they do with so little that they have. The Congolese people are absolutely amazing people. They do not sit around waiting for people to do things for them. They are out and doing everything that it takes to survive another day. I admire and love them all.
How significant we all can be in those lives around us. I know this picture is far away and not very good, but it speaks to me and reminds me how important service is to our fellowmen and women. We can make a difference. Because there are so many in need, it is virtually impossible to give to everyone, but one way we can make a difference is to pray for them. Have the faith to know that your prayers are answered. Your prayers can make a difference, much like this lovely lady leading those behind her to their destination.
