I've told the story many times of what he indicated when I interviewed him as a kid that had been abducted by the LRA, and what he went through.  When I found out he was only 10 years old, and what he had gone through with his legs and feet being burned and filled with cuts, I was heartbroken. He did want me to be praying for him, and I DID start to pray.  However, unusually, when I would have held HIS hands, he grabbed mine and pressed them.  And, when I glanced at 
him, I saw his tears flowing down his cheeks.

I was overwhelmed with sorrow when I knew what he had gone through.  He DID seem to focus on the Lord, 
however, even when he had been so wounded.

Now, assuming he survived, he's about 20, pushing 21, since it was nearly 11 years ago that I was with him for that very short time.  I assume he has entered family and friends
 and the cultural situations.  
I would love to see him, love to meet his parents.

He has been on my heart all these years, all this time.
I meditate and consider my Lord's mighty deeds.
Our Heavenly Father is bigger than LRA, 
any world-wide sinfulness, any sorrowfulness.
All I can count on, forever.
