A “MESSAGE” TO A MOM WHO IS HEARTBROKEN
A Mother’s heart is broken and she reaches out for comfort, hoping someone will hear her. In the very early hours of the morning, unable to sleep, Amie van Dyk is overcome with the pain of not being able to see her little girl. It is heartbreaking to want to reach out to comfort her from thousands of miles away and to be able to offer no more than words of hope that her daughter will soon be returned.
Ayn was taken from her family eight months ago by people whose hearts can only be filled with hatred. Who else would hurt a child like this and cause so much pain and suffering to a family who loves and cares for their children.
Five days ago Amie was looking forward to spending an hour and a half with Ayn. Everyone’s spirits were lifted because after months of waiting, visits that had been stopped with no explanation would finally resume – we would know that Ayn is okay, that she had a brief time to hug her mom, to laugh and play. Imagine the excitement Ayn would be experiencing after not seeing her mom for months. Ayn is autistic and was surely having difficulty communicating her feelings and emotions on Tuesday while at school anticipating this visit. Of course we don’t know what caused a meltdown in school. The response was to send Ayn back to the home where she has been kept against her will for 8 months and to cancel the visit with her mom which was to happen in just 2 hours. So again Ayn would be punished and we are left to imagine how this played out..............
Today, five days later Amie shares with us the only response she has had in 5 days:

Verses from Philippians 4:6, 7 from a bible version called the “Message”. "Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's peace, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."
God hears these silent prayers. "God in Heaven, I ask that you will comfort Amie with your love at this moment. You see her brokenness and her sorrow. You understand how helpless she is to help Ayn whom she loves so much. Because these are your children, do for them what they cannot do for themselves. Interrupt, Intercept, change the minds of the Ministry personnel, and bring Ayn home to her family. Meanwhile, settle Amie's heart with a deep peace that she cannot even explain apart from you." Amen
