Devotions from Judy’s heart

I was touched by a video I saw on, (Foundation For His Ministry), which is a mission for orphans and the poorest of the poor in Mexico. I remember meeting the woman who started this mission when Al was in Seminary in California, and she is now 80 years old. On her web site is the story of a young girl named Isabelle was diagnosed  in 2010 with NLP Hodgkins Lymphoma, a rare form of cancer. Her parents had a hard time to give her up into the Lord’s hands to do what He wanted for Isabelle.  She was offered a wish by Make-A–Wish foundation and her wish was to volunteer at an orphanage and hold babies. For a young girl that is quite unusual in the first place as most may want a trip to Disney World or something else. Her wish caught national attention and people gave money so she could take with several large hockey bags full of clothes to the poor. When she got there ( Aug 8,2012)  it must have been a culture shock for her but she played with the kids, fed them peanut butter and milk, visited a migrant camp, and spent time holding lots of orphans. One that especially touched her heart was the littlest orphan that came with no name, and she called him “Little Man”.  She played with and showed love to the children, and her family was even granted permission to take some to the ocean. I don’t suppose she or her family will ever be the same after this experience and they already want to go back. Sometimes surgery cures this type of cancer and so far after Isabelle’s surgery she is CA free.   But no matter what happens she didn’t let this difficult time go wasted. God has a purpose for everything.  “You can’t choose the life you were given but you can choose what to do with it.”  If you want to watch the video go to FFHM Praise Reports & Prayer Requests 8/24/12 and click “Watch” on Isabelle. I know you will be blessed
