Faces of Sierra Leone Video

For the girls of Sierra Leone.
Lord, only you can save them - Jesus, Our Savior!

I made this video today after I realized I was constantly thinking about these faces. Their eyes almost speak through the pictures. Calling to my heart. I feel like I have been ruined and everything around me as a new awareness and meaning. I cannot look at life the same.

I can't imagine what it would be like to be a girl growing up in Sierra Leone. 1 out of every 5 children die before they reach their 5th birthday. The number of women dying from pregnancy and childbirth complications is among the highest in the world. Some little girls are scarred for life from female circumcision. Hunger and malnutrition is everywhere. Human trafficking. Disease. My heart is broken for these lovely ladies. I know seeing the pictures is not the same as being there. But I hope you can feel my heart as you watch this. You can also watch it on youtube:


  1. Chris, your blog is beautiful and it makes me realize how great our lives are even when we don't think so. You are an amazing women with an amazing heart. I miss you so! God has given you something very special a love for children that may never be loved on earth, but to show them the greatest of all loves..AGAPE...the purest of love! :)
