Blessings even in a pandemic!

2 Chronicles 7:14 says - If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Fatima didn't have any savings at the time of the lockdown, no dried food and no crops in the field, as the rains had come and it was time to plant. 'With children now at home 24/7 and two pigs to feed, I was very worried' says Fatima. 

Many families could only pray and fast, asking God for His provision and good health to get through this desperate situation.  

Fatima says 'I have never seen the village mango trees with so much fruit on them. We have all been overwhelmed with mangoes just when we need food the most. We ended up depending on mangoes, week in week out, with the occasional cooked evening meal with whatever we could scavenge. I even managed to keep my pigs fed and to my surprise one gave birth to five bouncing piglets!' 

Fatima recalls that 'the abundance of mangoes was like manna from heaven, seeing us through these dark days, and now I have piglets to sell to make money! 

'In the end, coronavirus didn't affect us at all. In fact, we were more worried and praying for our UK sponsors to stay healthy and safe'.
