Several years ago, a woman in China, wanted freedom so desperately for her four sons that she sold her eyes to a wealthy man whose daughter was blind.
The money she received purchased tickets on a tramp steamer to California for her sons, with no hope of, literally, ever seeing them again. Her love for them was greater than her love for herself and her sight.
God protected these young boys and arranged for them to be adopted, raised and educated by a wealthy businessman. They are now successful and have devoted their lives to sharing God’s unconditional love with people around the world who have never had the freedom to know God.
So their mother’s sacrifice of love, has touched thousands of lives.
In a similar situation today, Elian Gonzalez’s mother’s sacrifice has opened the dialogue again of freedom versus oppression. And Christ’s sacrifice for every man is a perfect summary of the love of both mother’s for their sons… a desire that all might have life and have it more abundantly.
He came to set the captives free and to bind up the broken-hearted. These women manifested His perfect love on earth and lives have changed as a result. This is Nina May celebrating freedom.
