SOROTI ABOUT ELIA AND VINCENT


With "The Soroti Project" book this is one of the portions of the story that has broken my heart then and broke it now, even though it's been 11 years since I was there.  The 10-year old boy who had been abducted by the Lord's Resistance Army and his legs and feet had been bloody and had been dropped off to the side from the large group, expecting he'd die, but they weren't going to kill him.  Well, he was caught and protected, and in with the safety kids group, and he had just arrived and a teen kid had gone out just that day trying to find his parents and let them know he was alive.  He cried when I was with him and holding his hands and praying.  And he put his hands over mine and cried.  I wanted to put him on my lap, since he was so young, and I would have held and cried over him.  However, in their nation, that wouldn't be OK.  I cried as soon as he had been prayed over and was going out to the others.  He truly was a heart broken kid to me.  NOW, he's in his early 20s, and I sure hope he's doing well and, as a kid who truly had been with the Lord even at his age, it would be a blessing to know he with and serving the Lord.  And, probably, married and has kids of his own.  Sure want to know somehow.  Anyhow, this grabbed me and I'm sharing it. 

AND VINCENT WAS 12.  SUSAN WAS A MAIN LEADER. MY GLASS WAS ON MY HAIR COVERING HAT, BUT MY FACE WAS WAY DOWN TO THE LORD. ALL THE SAME DAY WAS DONE.  WOULD LOVE TO SEE AND MEET VINCENT, TOO. IF NOTHING ELSE, THERE WILL TIME IN HEAVEN! THAT'S WHAT I COUNT ON! FOREVER AND EVER.

What a horrible and viscous world we live in where we do these horrible viscous things to one another.

It would be interesting to see how they are doing in their lives today. Prayer seems like the only connection on this earth, but what a powerful one!

Bless you, dear one!

It is so sad to hear of children being tortured and abused, but I am glad you could comfort this beaten child. Thank you for sharing your awesome post with us here at “Tell Me a Story.” http://letmetelluastory.blogspot.com/

It is very disheartening to hear such horrible stories of people especially children. Makes me wonder what I can do to help. I look forward to the day when the world will be violent-free. It's not impossible, right?
