Review for MADE IN THE STREETS, Brentwood, TN, USA
Psalm 113:7-8 says “He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; He seats them with the princes.” The redemptive nature of our God has been so close to me this summer while interning at Made in the Streets, I can almost taste it. Finding words to express the magnitude of His work that is being done here is impossible, but the beauty of our God is that He is greater than we could ever comprehend. My heart physically aches for the children in Nairobi with mismatched shoes, addicted to drugs they can’t even pronounce yet, and empty bellies that won’t be filled- yet I have hope. I have hope because I have watched the staff here tenderly comfort children on their first day on the streets, orphaned and alone. I have hope because despite all odds these kids laugh more in a day, than some have in a lifetime. I have hope because the same God that made the stars and parted the Red Sea is protecting these kiddos. Made in the Streets is the hands and feet of Jesus in the slums of Nairobi, and His way is being lived out by the community of MITS.
