The Hand You Don't See

Every Saturday the Poole family gather 12 kids that are having trouble reading and they read with them for an hour. For two Saturdays in a row I have helped them and both times I was assigned a little guy by the name of Obediah.  Obediah is nine years old and he was brought to Harvesters when he was a new born by his father.  He was very sick and could not keep any formula his stomach.  The father told them there was nothing he could do and left him with Mama Lillie and her staff.  He was so sick they took him to a hospital in Yei to see if they could help.  They told them there was nothing they could do and would not even admit him.  They took him back to the orphanage and did the only thing they could do.  They gathered the other children around Obediah and they simply prayed to God to save his life.  The next day he was able to hold his formula and nine years later God is letting me help him with his reading.  God's hand has saved my bacon more than once and I considered it a great honor that He let me help Obediah a little bit.


  1. That's a very powerful picture Dave, thank you for sharing it with me.

  2. What a beautiful story and testimony Obediah has! Won't it be wonderful to learn what becomes of this little guy's life? Surely God saved his life for a reason! Thanks for sharing all that that you have Dave.
