Behind the Veil of Tears

My life was forever changed in 2011 when I read No Longer a Slumdog by K. P. Yohannan.

The stories about 9.9 million little girls between the ages of 4 and 11 years of age being homeless and walking the streets of India attempting to survive, the stories about 300 million downtrodden Indian people who are considered untouchable because they were born to the wrong parents, and the stories about the degradation of women in India crushed my heart.

My poor heart has never recovered nor do I ever want it to revert back to before reading Yohannan’s book.

The above video was produced by the Saylor Brothers and the quality is A+++, but it is 17 minutes and 22 seconds long. If you have the time, watch it. You won’t regret doing so.

Just so you know: I wept all the way through it, thinking about the six children my wife and I sponsor through GFA’s Bridge of Hope program and asking the Lord to show me how we can do more.
