Can life really get any harder ...

.... for some people??!!!???? 

Just wondering ... 

So yesterday, Marie Jean is back in my office at J.Lynn's. (see my post from June 10th...for the first part of this) 
She received her pay from us on Tuesday of this week for the month of June. 
When she left J.Lynn's she went down the road to the market to buy some food for her children.  

And get this.. her money was stolen! 

Now I've been 'around the block' more than once in Rwanda. I have heard about all the stories there are to be told when it comes to asking for help.  As I'm listening to her, I need to forcefully not dwell on that it's possible she is lying to me so that she can get more money. 

I do my little wrestle with God... SHOW ME! MAKE IT CLEAR!!! 

In the end... I don't know for sure but gosh, what is another $19 USD? 

My heart is really heavy people ... to anyone reading this... tears are rolling down my cheeks. 
I'm praying that none of my women walk in on me.
What to do? What to do? What to do? 

God's going to make it clear ... I'm trusting him for that!!

Praying for you! Jesus kept giving. (Give him your cloak as well) He also got taken advantage of plenty. Didn't seem to bother him too much.

Praying Jen...I've been there. It's frustrating...but better to err on the side of grace and compassion. =) Which you did!
