He was confused and uncomfortable when he met a woman who showed him compassion. Desta was strong-willed, perseverant regardless of circumstance, and could look past the man’s disability to see clearly all his capabilities. In spite of others thinking she was foolish, she wanted to marry him. It has been 12 years since they began building a life together.
Desta says this project has brought “a bright hope” to their family, offering support in all directions while they pursue their potential.
LIA exists to bring support to those society normally overlooks, people like Megbare, helping them to see what we already do – that they are valuable voices in our world and capable of taking hold of hope. Please pray with us for this family and the others we serve in Africa and the Caribbean. Ask God to grant them vision to see themselves the way he sees them and may that change not only their lives, but those around them as well.
