Let it Shine Posted October 7, 2013 by Nichole Prillaman

Jaclyn Olson, a student at Furman University and a member of Columbia Baptist Church in Falls Church, recently visited the Source of Light Center. Here are some words describing her experience:

“From an academic standpoint, their stories are not new to me. I read about exploitation and impacts on child health regularly in my poverty and human development classes, but associating those types of situations with specific faces is something quite different. As impossible as it is to completely understand their needs as children who have come from such difficult backgrounds, their capacity for joy gave me such reassurance that God can bring light to every situation.”

We give thanks for this light! Even in the darkest of places and situations, God’s precious children can be heard delivering the message, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.”
