Hug ME Lil stinky E!!
I love this picture. Vince just sent it to me. Look at my girl, hasn't bathed in 13 days and having fun with it while raising money for her Dad to go on a missions trip.
Unfortunately it's not always fun. I am beginning to realize we are in the midst of a very profound social experiment as well as a memory making missions trip fund raiser.
Last night E got in the car and said "this not bathing is not fun today. Some of my friends wont hug me and I like to be hugged."
Jesus would hug a girl that hasn't bathed in 13 days...
Our son A and his house mates at the Foster home that he lives in in Ethiopia, have never used a tooth brush and before coming to live in the Foster home, had never seen a bar of soap much less bathed or showered like we know it. So, Evangeline will be able to sympathize with him a little.
Evangeline visited with a 16 year old homeless girl last Thursday. She lives under a bridge with three men. Evangeline said she was beautiful. That girl doesn't have a shower under the bridge.
So, in our conversation last night we talked about how God is using this time to teach all of us a little more about loving, accepting and hugging people that society doesn't. A lot of really great people do hug her, she gets lots of support and she loves it, it really does encourage her but Like E said on her video from yesterday, She will hug the homeless people more now, cuz' she is feeling the sting of people who are supposed to be her friends NOT hugging her. She said "the homeless people need to be hugged even more then me".
Jesus touched a Leper, much worse then a non bather..
