Weekly Reflection

ChildAid helped them smile.

Each week we post a scripture or a quotation we have come across during the week, or a simple prayer that we have reflected upon or that has spoken to us in some way. It may be specific to the needs of our partners or the children, or indeed a request from any of our supporters.

You may wish to use our thoughts or reflections in your prayers for the forgotten children of Eastern Europe. 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

Today (10th October) is World Mental Health Day. Created by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to raise public awareness of mental health issues, this day has been in existence since 1992. Those directly or indirectly affected by mental health know full well the immense difficulties faced received even an understanding of the problems faced, let alone the opportunities of substantive support. In Belarus mental health remains a major social stigma with families torn apart – if it were not for a very few dedicated and committed people such as the wonderful people at ChildAid’s partners, Isle of Hope, the plight of young people suffering from mental health would be truly unbearable. We give thanks for their amazing grace and mercy.
