I’m not enough.

I am absolutely not enough.

Even if I had all the resources in the world, I would still not be enough.

Only when I can say all of that with hope will I truly be living the Gospel.

There are things that I could never be able to change. And yet, my inadequacy is not insignificance.

People have to join hands. God has to change hearts.

Wahyu Adi Prasetyo

Wahyu Adi Prasetyo has graduated from Compassion’s project. And I’ve graduated from being his sponsor. And I break into tears, thinking what an inadequate sponsor I’ve been to him. Wishing I’d been able to write to him more often – visit him in Indonesia – praying that he’s had somebody to fill the gap that his mother left when she died several years ago – praying that he’s had someone to disciple him in his relationship with Jesus and care for him as well as he should be cared for.

I can’t believe he’s 18 already. In this photo, he was 14. Somehow, I didn’t expect his sponsorship to end immediately when he turned 18. I thought maybe they’d let us finish out the year.

Pras, I didn’t get to write you a final letter. But, I suppose you may google your name some day and find this note. Please know I still think of you, fondly.
