Some of our Church family recently went to Medan to see first hand the work of Compassion. Unfortunately I was not able to join them as we were moving house at the time of the visit. The love and open hearted thankfulness shown to them by the local villagers was truly amazing but the need for more support from us was also very apparent.
The thing that moved me and my wife the most though was that Lani and her family were unexpectedly there and wanted to give us a gift. One of our Pastors took this photo and brought our gift home. We were truly blessed by this huge act of giving from a family who really can't afford to give. The handmade table runner is beautiful and we both treasure it.
