Last year, I visited my daughter in Haiti during her one-year teaching assignment. While attending a service at Disciple’s Village, Son Son and Kindly sang a harmonious duet in Creole for the congregation. Then they sang in English. And I lost it!
Tears ran down my face. I had to cover my mouth to keep from being audible. Son Son and Kindly are young orphans being loved, nurtured, educated and cared for at Disciple’s Village. This is what they said in song …
I thought… They’re singing the same song that I sing! They worship like I worship! They may not have the comforts and conveniences as others but that does not affect their adoration to God.
I will always remember those two little boys who made such an impact in my life by their words and speaking those words so that I could understand. I’m confident they will grow up to be strong men and make a big difference in the communities and lives of many others.
Notice: Every blog, product, post, or creative piece is designed as a reminder to speak words fitly spoken - words that encourage, heal, or help in some way. We create a place that speaks to the power of words and how words affect us in our everyday lives. Sometimes something funny, sometimes gleaning from history. Maybe it’s science-based, informational, inspirational, or just a story to share. It is our hope that everything Apples in Silver moves us toward being conscience of the words we speak as we aim to make someone’s day better with the words we say.
