Sisters Vera* (13), Faith* (10) and Esther* (5) live with their father in a small one-room shack in Nissi Community, Zambia. Their father, despite his best efforts, struggles to care well for the physical and emotional needs of his daughters. He makes a small wage working at a nearby bus station. The little money he receives, however, is not enough to cover their rent. Their landlord is a kind and generous man who understands this family’s vulnerability. He has allowed them to stay in their home even though they are unable to pay him rent, but much-needed roof repairs have to wait.
Pray for more people in the community, like their landlord, to have a heart of compassion to support the most vulnerable around them.
A key part of a Holy Home Visit is spending time praying with the family for the challenges that they face. On a recent visit to Nissi Community, Zambia, Benson, a member of the Hands at Work local office in Kabwe, spent time praying with the family that he visited.
