The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed

Taking a break in Mwanza.

Boys enjoying a swim in the pool and bacon for breakfast.

Today onto Bunda to visit the Archers after filling Sam’s shopping list from the English supermarket in town.

The poverty in Murgwanza - we are now accustomed to. We just had a mango smoothie here in Mwanza that cost a few days wages for people in Murgwanza. This highlights again a different perspective to the one we grew up with in Australia. It makes us rethink how we use the money God has given us.
Most people in the Ngara region have never travelled more than by foot. Most have no electricity, no “material” goods, minimal food and close to 1 set of tatty clothes.

Oh how we long for the people here to trust in Jesus.

The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
Psalm 9:9

There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.
Deuteronomy 15:11

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.
James 4 13-17
