He uncovers the deeps out of darkness and brings deep darkness to light
Fabien, is a community mobilizer who works with villagers with disabilities. Challenged by a disability himself, he has a passion for searching for the disabled in communities. Too often they are an embarrassment to their families and are hidden away from the community.
One such child, John, was concealed in his family’s home and locked there when the other children went to school. His mother is deceased and the father works in another place so during the day no one is home. He is kept in the house because of safety and also shame.
Fabien found and brought John into the village and began spending time with him. They celebrated Christmas together by sharing a banana. With Fabien’s encouragement and presence, John now is spending more time out of the house in the village with his brothers and sisters.
For at one time, you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.
