One Little Hat Meets One Little Girl

Once upon a time... a woman named Rebecca listened to a radio station.

She heard someone talking about God, and how God loves little kids, and how God loves the poor, and the vulnerable, and little ones who have hard lives ahead of them, in hard places.  In God's Kingdom, little ones like that are royalty!  Rebecca heard she could do something, seemingly small, that would show a little one, in one of the hardest places in the world, how God feels about her:  She could knit a hat!

And Rebecca cared.  So she taught herself how to knit.  And she made a hat, her only hat, and wrote a note, and sent it away.

And do you know what happened to that hat?

That hat went in an envelope!  And into the mail!  And into a truck! And across the country! And into a suitcase! And onto a plane!  And the plane flew far, far away, even over the North Pole, and went to the other side of the world!   

And it went into a hospital, and into a sunny room in that hospital, where a little girl sat on a bed.

And that hat went on her head.  It went onto Haseba's little head.

And Haseba's own mom heard why Rebecca made that hat - that very beautiful hat!: Because Rebecca knows how much God loves little girls like Haseba, and how God loves the poor, and the vulnerable, and the little ones who have hard lives ahead of them, in hard places.  

And thanks to a certain woman named Rebecca, who somehow knew just how important a certain little girl is in God's Kingdom, today, little Haseba got her knitted crown.

What a wonderful story of faith! Brant, God bless the work that you are doing in Jesus name. He is truly working through you and with all the wonderful people who sent hats for all these well deserving children of GOD! Will be praying for all the people in the CURE hospital in Afghanistan and throughout the world! God keep you safe for your return!

Thank you so much for sharing the story and the picture. What an adorable little girl! I pray mother and daughter will both come to know the love of our Lord and Savior, as well as the love of others.

I have been looking forward to your trip with CURE and am so eager to hear all the stories. Praying for your work and all who join you on this mission of love.
