The young girl I met in the slums of Manila did accept my invitation and attend church. I asked her if she had eaten that day and she replied: No, sir, I am very poor.
Debbie and I bought her dinner and invited her to return to church. I will pray about her soul, and somehow find a way to continue to touch this live God put in my path.
After coming to Cebu today, Debbie has told me clearly: Thank you for picking the right country in which to serve Christ - I couldn't take the poverty and chaos of this culture. The poverty impacts me deeply and my life will probably never be the same. Every expenditure that I now have is in light of what it could do for those that struggle with daily existence.
