Sarah and I met for coffee last week. (Sarah is a ZOE Partner working in Chennai, India...more info here.)
It was a great "catch up" as her sweet daughter Rhema ran around Starbucks in her bare feet. Sarah said that Rhema is very much a "child of India" who continually rejects shoes and socks even though she is visiting a very cold Canada. Somehow, Rhema had missed the memo on the current temperature.
We were talking about the plight of women in the developing world (which lately I find myself doing more and more)...when Sarah began to tell me about the stigma she has faced because she delivered three daughters in a culture that prizes sons. I asked Sarah to "hold that thought"...I grabbed my iPhone and filmed her story. Have a listen on the link below...
Sarah, Christo and their three beautiful girls!
It is an important story because it is the story of many women around the globe...women who have NO IDEA of their inherent value as daughters of God.
I can't help thinking that someone needs to tell them...Will that be you?
