There was a big election in South Africa yesterday. It was the first time that the Born Frees could vote. The ANC was leading last I checked. Then there is the heart-wrenching story of the Nigerian girls who were kidnapped. I keep thinking about Mama Angelina in Uganda and her long struggle to find her daughter who was abducted by Kony’s rebels. The world needs peace. The world needs a visionary like Nelson Mandela. We need less crazy people who destroy rather than build up. May God forgive us our sins.
As we approach Mother’s Day here, I cannot help but think of the mothers of those missing girls. The voice still cries out in the wilderness; Good Fridays will happen even when many of us celebrate Easter. One day there will be a new order. Until then, pray.
