How do our children regard all that has happened?
In this report by Hannah and Havah Krumbacher of a visit with their sister, Merea, you can understand something profound about the New Covenant heart our Father gives us who surrender all to Him.
Several months ago…
“We were thankful for our last visit with Merea in the orphanage where she lives. We had it on our hearts to take some lambs to her to encourage her. So we took two lambs and two Nubian kids. It happened to be a nice opportunity to invite all the children there to come. The educators were also very interested to see the animals, so they called the other children outside.
“We were also very happy to be able to see Abijah’s girls, Haninah and Ishah who endure in the same orphanage. They also came over and all of the children enjoyed feeding the milk to the kids and pet the lambs. It was nice to reach out to the other children also, even just to show a little interest in them.
You can see how they are socially neglected and how they long for love and a place to belong. It is sad to see all these lonely and starving young souls without a future and purpose for their lives. I thought, we are their only hope and I believe that there’s a reason why our children are in this orphanage so long. If these children could one day remember the love and find a true home and family it would all be worth it.
“Some girls said, “Oh, Haninah told us so much about Klosterzimmern and that you have a lot of animals there….” She seemed very interested and well informed about where we come from.
“When it was time for us to put the goats back in the vehicle, the children begged the educators if we could please stay longer and get the lambs out again. Well, our time was almost up so they all jumped in the back of our truck with the animals for a photo.”
Little voices… crying out… some not even old enough to make clear words or sentences, yet you can understand – “help” “children” “parents” “Germany”… Then come the booming voices of the 5 and 6 year old children clearly, loudly begging for the children in the far away tribe of Levi… then all the rest… crying out with all their hearts…
Recently some of us had the opportunity to travel across the US and were able to go to several of our communities. In each community we visited we were amazed, for in every place it was exactly the same. When it came time to pray, the children’s voices rose up quickly from every corner of the room… Their little voices, so clear and so pure, begging their Abba in heaven to rescue the children of Levi.
They pray for “servants in places of authority”, “that the children would not be deceived”, that “the children would not be defiled by the things of the world”, loudly “bring the children back to their parents”, and “do not let the parents lose their courage to stand”, and on and on go up the little prayers.
The children are not growing weary… the prayers from the little ones this morning at our morning gathering in Vista are just as fervent as the day of the Raid nearly 6 months ago at the Wake Up Call on Yom Teruah.
Now there are two more children who have escaped (at least partially) from the grasp of those who would destroy the Tribe of Levi in Germany. And we will give thanks and praise to YHWH, our God, who hears His little children.
We were so thankful for the zeal of all the little ones who pray. When asked what they were thankful for during the story last night, one little six-year-old child raised his hand quickly, almost without thinking, “That I do not have to go to public school!” he proclaimed.
They realize that being forced to go to public school is also one of the great injustices the children of Levi are being compelled to endure at this time.
There’s a little child in all of us, that is longing to be free
To climb the highest mountain tops, and to sail the mighty seas
I see a glimpse of myself, when I look into my child’s eyes
And I wonder when I got so old, that I could not spread my wings and fly
When little children learn to walk, they stumble and they fall
But they want to be by their Abba’s side
So they get back up and try again…
I know I’ll stumble as I walk along our Abba’s way
But I want to be a little child, and start by pleasing Him today
There’s a little child in all of us, that is longing to be loved
To know no matter how we fall, someone still believes in us
When I look into my child’s heart, I see all my hopes and fears
So we’ll have to stumble side by side, and wipe away each other’s tears
There’s a little child in all of us, that is longing to know why
The sun is always there to shine, and why must people die?
I know I don’t have all the answers, when my child looks to me
But I do know that our Father does, if I’ll just learn to wait patiently.
