Bonte* is a six-year-old boy who is one of Junelle’s* two living children. Junelle’s husband was working in a nearby mine when he was killed, and she then suffered the devastating loss of her first-born child in infancy. This grief and despair would seem too much for anybody to handle, yet Junelle gave birth again, a year ago, as a result of abuse from a stranger. Junelle often has epileptic seizures, causing not only embarrassment, but physical harm. Due to the unpredictable nature of her epilepsy, Junelle has been unable to find work.
But God has not forgotten Bonte’s family. This can be seen through the life and love brought by #CareWorker Rachel from Kisunka Community Based Organisation (CBO). Rachel sees this family exactly as they are – created in God’s image and loved deeply as His children. Junelle has learned to smile again because of the consistent encouragement and love that Rachel has shown to her family. God has seen Bonte and his family and has heard their cry. Pray for the continued healing of Bonte and his mother, and thank God that He is using loving Care Workers who are dedicated to making a difference in their lives.
