My name is Autumn Buzzell and I live and work in Ghana, West Africa with City of Refuge Ministries. Here, I run our school, Faith Roots International Academy, and get to be a part in rescuing and the healing of children who have been trafficked into the fishing trade, orphaned, abandoned, and those who just need a little extra loving. What an amazing gift this life is!

Lesson Learned

Today was a little piece of madness. Kids falling sick left and right. Fevers. Malaria. Headaches. Throw up and more. Lots of tears. Coaxing kids into eating and taking meds that will help them feel better.

And today I learned so many lessons:

God can heal, even through conversations.

Friends are wonderful...especially when they show up with love in the form of juice and crackers and medication.

Laughter sometimes is the best medicine, especially for little ones who haven't been able to smile all day.

A cold cloth and a loving caress goes a long way.

Sometimes, all you need is a hug and a prayer.

When volunteers and staff prayer walk and pray over each child before going to bed, you have to know you are in the midst of seeing something holy happening.

Praying for complete healing for our kiddos and sick staff. Will you join us in that place too?
