Showing His Love to the Least of These~ Day 6 (Day 1 and Day 2)

Day 1

Disha Foundation partners with an organization that teaches women from low cast, very poor, in or out of the sex trade how to make extra income for their family, so because of their social status they are not treated well or even touched. Today was going to be the end of that...

Today we had the privilege to spend time with 20 young ladies and just love on them and really show them how much they are worth. They performed a couple dances for us that they had worked really hard on and then they showed us samples of their work they are learning in their different courses (hair, bridal preparations, henna application, sewing creations). Then after that we began to reveal their worth and how precious they truly are. This group of young ladies were a little hesitant and it took a while for them to warm up, but that wall was broken through. We played games, read a Princess story to them, they made lotions of their own fragrance, they received a mani and pedi, heard 3 henna Bible stories, and they had the option to have a henna story applied to their skin. All in all it was a wonderful day and we were well received by the majority of the girls. We were simply their to show them love in a way they have not experienced before.

Day 2

So day 2 was exactly like day 1 except there were 50 young ladies! These girls came ready for a good time. I think they knew more what to expect because they heard something from the previous group. It was truly a glorious day loving in such a way that we could not do on our own. All the ladies were so beautiful and ready to receive. They said they did not come with flowers, but they came with their eyes and heart to give. This was a great honor to be given. Truly that is what they gave! 

Both days I had the privilege to apply henna Bible stories on the girls, along with Ruth and Rona. It was such a blessing! But the second day I applied so much henna I couldn't even keep count. Applying henna on someone else is giving a gift in my eyes.

When we said our goodbyes they were given hugs... Women of a low stature are not touch in such a way or giving hugs by family because they do not show affection... But I give hugs using my two arms and I hang on for that uncomfortable amount of time (do you know what I am talking about?). I just really want to show the girls how much I have treasured their time with us, because it was their choice to come... Not anyone else's.
