We had the privilege of taking a young lady from England on a walking tour through our village. I love it when I have the chance to walk among the people of Lusaka. Amid the beauty, one encounters the most unusual things. A random taxi driver proposed marriage. (We politely declined!) A woman sitting in her yard doing laundry shouted to someone in her shack that they must come out and see the lekgoa (“white people”). We walked among illegal electricity wire connections lining the dirt paths up the mountain. These are actually not surprising things in a township, but this is no typical tame stroll for a foreigner.
As we neared the top of the mountain filled with shacks, we met a young man all alone. My heart leapt. I knew God sent us to him. God wanted him to know how much He loves him and that He sees him and cares deeply for him. He was shocked and obviously moved by this unexpected encounter.
May your normal and expected day be repurposed by the wildness of God’s love for another!
