My Life Verse

The Great Commission

Matthew 28:19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

Mark and I went to Clarkston tonight to check on an African Mom. She had called one of the other Missionaries and said that her 3 month old baby is crying all the time and has stomach problems. I checked the baby. She has an umbilical hernia but it looked okay. The baby was happy and responding appropriately. I think the baby may just be hungry. The few times that I have watched Mom breastfeed she only nurses for a few minutes at a time. I can't seem to make her understand that she needs to feed the baby for longer periods of time. Her English is poor. I will see if I can get someone to come by again who speaks her language. We had a good visit. She is a precious Mom with 2 wonderful children. Her life here is hard though as a single Mom and she is lonely.
