from my jessimoo

My friend Jessica is currently fulfilling her heart's dream of going to Africa; read on for a powerful excerpt from her email...

i sat for quite a while yesterday with josephine, who can only get around using a wheelchair with a hand crank because she lost the use of both of her legs in a bombing. she has a four year old son that she is raising by herself because the father of the child does not have to stay with her if she is disabled. but her testimony is remarkable...her son's name means "only the Lord knows", because she has such a rich understanding that God is able to complete what is missing in her and she truly believes that God will be everything that she and her child need to live rich and full lives. please pray for josephine - that she would be able to provide for her family, and that God might even provide the resources for her to get a chair that is easier for her to maneuver as it is difficult for her to travel long distances with the hand crank chair.
