This is one of my all time Favorite photographs of Grace, a very special little girl. I first met Grace when on mission to Tunga/Zuga in 2006. Tunga/Zuga village in in remote Kebbe state, Nigeria. This little girl created so much passion and inspiration in me to continue to reach as many as possible with help.
Grace was very ill and close to death. The whole village was struggling just to survive. Poverty, sickness, famine and disease had devastated the whole area.
When I first saw her she was frail and very weak. When I returned from Africa, after spending a month there in 2006, I uploaded images of Grace here on RB. She touched the heart of many and Prayers and donations where made to our Charity, Philadelphia Mission.
Today Grace, The twins and others are all well and in good health. Thank you to Olga, Sharon, Michelle and the many others who have saved the lives of these children, not only in Tunga/Zuga but in other villages as well.
You made it all possible and I give God thanks for each of you. Some of you will know I have been challenged with heard disease recently and that I have decided to refuse open heart surgery, as I have no doubt God has already healed my body as he has done before and raised me from the dead. It is my desire and prayer that I return to spend some time with these children again soon.. I ask for your continued Prayers and donations.
Thank you to all who have prayed and are praying. I love you. Thank you also to all the many who have encouraged me with your comments,Bmails and features. Redbubble truly is a big family of beautiful people.
