As we continue to grow in serving God’s people we continue to realize their needs. It is no doubt that many people cannot afford sugar in their homes yet it is one of the necessities. Having noticed that, now JFM gives each family one kilogram of sugar with food plus a Bible tract. Jumping a trench is where I found a little girl who was peeling local sweet potatoes. It was around 2 pm lunchtime and this confirmed to me that they eat one meal a day because the time was late for a family to prepare another meal.
I tried to talk to the little girl but she was not in the good mood to speak to me. In my mind, I sensed that maybe because of hunger, or perhaps she just thought I was a stranger. Her countenance changed the minute I pulled out a bag of suckers and offered her one, then she put on a big smile.
