Cemetery


I was driving down the hill from Waterford this morning and saw a sight that I had to stop and take a picture of: Two rows of freshly dug graves, maybe thirty to a row? You don't think much about the devastation that HIV/AIDS has when you only hear of a person here or there that "passes". But to see that many graves for one weekend was a shock. Another missionary mentioned that they commonly bury more than one person in a grave as well. How many more children are now classified as single or double orphans? How many of these are for children? The grief and hardship associated with that many open graves is hard to imagine. But it makes the point that what we do is for eternity and the importance of each and every person to God. (Daran)
