What´s in your bag?

Jeremiah 1:5
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were
 born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

  Psalm 139:13-16
For You, You possessed my kidneys, You have covered me in my motherʼs womb. 
I give thanks to You, For I am awesomely and wondrously made! Wondrous are Your works, 
And my being knows it well. My bones was not concealed from You, When I was shaped 
in a hidden place, Knit together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body. And in Your book all of them were written, The days they were formed, While none was among them.  

A Spanish-English Bible, a pregnancy test, and tissues is probably not a typical answer
 to the question, "What's in your bag?" That was mine when my son asked me one day.
We are so blessed with this journey that Abba has brought our family
 on and ministering to the young women is part of it.

She may be a prostitute, a drug addict, come from an abusive home,
in poverty or maybe she was young and naive.
Here in Costa Rica pregnancy tests are expensive. If you are underage you
must go with a parent. Abortions are illegal, so they get them illegally. Scary stuff!

Deuteronomy 27:25 
“‘Cursed be anyone who takes a bribe to shed innocent blood.’
 And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’ 

Psalm 51:5 
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. 

Our "grandson". We pray his mother will stay off the streets and drugs.
Not sure about the father, only a bloodtest could answer that.
 A blessing from YHWH. An abortion that never happened.  
There are several He has brought to our door and 
we will gladly receive those that He will bring as well.
Ecclesiastes 11:5
As you do not know the way the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, 
so you do not know the work of God who makes everything. 

We pray for each one of these innocent lives. Precious lives that He has intertwined with our own. Spiritual children to love and teach of YHWH's Ways.
The journey can be heartbreaking but the reward of gathering
one of these little ones in your arms is priceless.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares YHWH,
 plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 

Mark 10:14 
But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, 
“Let the children come to me; do not hinder them,
 for to such belongs the kingdom of God.
