Hear our story

we were invited into their home. These women have all come together. Realizing that they have children to take care of and that death was not going to happen today. That death didn't happen yesterday. And death may not come tomorrow. But life is ever present. Life is now. They pooled whatever resources they could and began giving small loans to other widowed women to get back on their feet and care for their loved ones. Each one of these women are warriors. They have faced some of the world's cruelest challenges and still live to tell their story. They have slayed the giants of disease. they have severed the head of poverty and malnutrition. They have looked death in the face and have removed their children from the altar of hopelessness. I was so privileged to sit on their stool and hear the tremendousness of their spirit person. These women aren't radiating because of the sunlight or my Nikon camera. They're radiating because they know that every moment of every day counts.
