When I recently spoke with Hephzibah, one of my brightest students, she told me “Self-sufficiency is my goal, that I strive to attain not by words, but through life.” This desire to be independent, and not be a burden for others, arose because she is staying far from her parents, instead living with her elderly grandparents. What a meaningful attitude to have as a child!
She does her class work all by herself and arranges her study tools in order.
Hephzibah’s grandparents are physically very weak. This little girl is only 7 years old, but is helpful in their weakness. Her parents are working abroad to make her future secure. She always keeps them in mind, and tries not to do anything wrong that would hurt them.
Please pray for Hephzibah, that the Lord make her a role model in this new generation!
