A few weeks ago, Lissie posted a video produced by the radio station K-LOVE about a need on the other side of the world. In the video, K-LOVE's DJ, Scott, made a plea for Americans to knit baby hats for Afghan babies. He shared the heart-rending news that the infant mortatlity rate in Afghanistan is the HIGHEST in the world. Scott begged listeners to knit while praying for the baby to whom the hat would go and for the baby's mom. Our hearts were especially touched since Jaynie had just recently come from Central Asia.
So, the very day after the broadcast we visited Hobby Lobby and bought knitting needles and yarn. Lissie, Daria, Cassandra, Tatiana and Natasha all knit the little head coverings. Lissie was so enthusiastic that we even caught her knitting during an intermission at a Toby Mac concert the family attended in late January.
Yesterday, eleven baby hats were mailed to K-LOVE. And many prayers went with those hats, asking the God who loves all the nations and people groups to extend His tender mercies to the precious women and babies of Afghanistan.
