  • 00:00:42.565 --> 00:00:49.072
  • Sheila: I'M SHEILA WALSH.
  • 00:00:56.913 --> 00:00:58.214
  • BECAUSE I THINK
  • 00:01:04.287 --> 00:01:05.288
  • THE WORD HEARTBROKEN
  • 00:01:38.688 --> 00:01:41.024
  • IN OUR CULTURE.
  • 00:01:42.392 --> 00:01:43.626
  • THE DEFINITION OF PAIN,
  • 00:01:46.062 --> 00:01:47.564
  • HERE'S JUST
  • 00:02:10.587 --> 00:02:12.956
  • A MAN WHO WAS A BLAMELESS MAN
  • 00:02:26.336 --> 00:02:27.870
  • THAT THE PSALMIST DAVID SAID,
  • 00:02:50.059 --> 00:02:51.728
  • MAYBE YOU FEEL LIKE THAT
  • 00:03:31.234 --> 00:03:32.969
  • IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:04:01.331 --> 00:04:02.732
  • OF THE MOST PROFOUND
  • 00:04:08.271 --> 00:04:10.406
  • TO THE WHOLE COMMUNITY.
  • 00:04:33.096 --> 00:04:34.664
  • YOU CAN FIND IT
  • 00:05:10.933 --> 00:05:12.201
  • AND HAD PRODUCED NO HEIR
  • 00:05:17.473 --> 00:05:18.941
  • HOW CRUEL!
  • 00:06:58.374 --> 00:06:59.542
  • TO ADD TO HANNAH'S PAIN.
  • 00:07:10.319 --> 00:07:11.654
  • THE FEAST OF BOOTHS
  • 00:07:15.958 --> 00:07:17.260
  • THIS WAS NOT THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:09:29.125 --> 00:09:30.793
  • IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD,
  • 00:10:12.368 --> 00:10:13.903
  • IMAGINE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:10:19.241 --> 00:10:21.110
  • BUT AT FIRST HE MISUNDERSTOOD
  • 00:10:34.223 --> 00:10:35.558
  • THAT THOUGH HER LIPS MOVED
  • 00:10:39.829 --> 00:10:41.097
  • AND WITH THAT,
  • 00:11:30.713 --> 00:11:32.081
  • BUT HANNAH CHOSE
  • 00:13:12.681 --> 00:13:14.483
  • AND THEN HANNAH PRAYED.
  • 00:13:44.880 --> 00:13:48.784
  • I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:14:02.665 --> 00:14:04.767
  • AND WHEN I ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:14:17.813 --> 00:14:21.150
  • WHO PRAYS IN FAITH
  • 00:14:24.486 --> 00:14:26.288
  • I'M LOOKING
  • 00:16:21.570 --> 00:16:22.771
  • THROUGH THE WINDOWS.
  • 00:16:28.243 --> 00:16:29.645
  • THAT STUFF DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:17:22.764 --> 00:17:24.066
  • YOU ARE FULLY, COMPLETELY,
  • 00:17:29.905 --> 00:17:33.208
  • IT IS INTERESTING BECAUSE
  • 00:18:17.119 --> 00:18:18.453
  • ELKANAH SAYS TO HIS WIFE,
  • 00:18:24.259 --> 00:18:25.427
  • TO A WORLD THAT IS HURTING.
  • 00:19:22.217 --> 00:19:23.518
  • AND THEN YOU SEE,
  • 00:19:23.518 --> 00:19:24.820
  • YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:19:24.820 --> 00:19:25.988
  • THERE IS SOMETHING
  • 00:19:25.988 --> 00:19:27.155
  • I CAN DO ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:19:27.155 --> 00:19:28.457
  • I CANNOT TELL YOU
  • 00:19:28.457 --> 00:19:30.025
  • WHAT IT'S LIKE WALKING
  • 00:19:30.025 --> 00:19:32.060
  • INTO A MALNUTRITION CLINIC.
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:34.763
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE AS A MOM
  • 00:19:34.763 --> 00:19:36.398
  • HAVING YOUR CHILD DIE
  • 00:19:36.398 --> 00:19:37.766
  • BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES,
  • 00:19:37.766 --> 00:19:40.502
  • IN YOUR ARMS, SIMPLY BECAUSE
  • 00:19:40.502 --> 00:19:42.271
  • YOU COULDN'T PROVIDE ANYTHING
  • 00:19:42.271 --> 00:19:44.006
  • FOR THEM TO EAT?
  • 00:19:44.006 --> 00:19:45.307
  • AND SOME OF YOU HAVE WRITTEN
  • 00:19:45.307 --> 00:19:46.575
  • AND ASKED ME QUESTIONS ABOUT
  • 00:19:46.575 --> 00:19:47.909
  • WELL, WHY DON'T THEY
  • 00:19:47.909 --> 00:19:49.144
  • HAVE ANYTHING?
  • 00:19:49.144 --> 00:19:50.379
  • DON'T THEY WORK?
  • 00:19:50.379 --> 00:19:51.647
  • ISN'T THERE A WAY TO...?
  • 00:19:51.647 --> 00:19:53.415
  • IF DROUGHT HAPPENS IN AFRICA,
  • 00:19:53.415 --> 00:19:54.816
  • IF THERE IS NO RAIN,
  • 00:19:54.816 --> 00:19:56.418
  • THE CROPS FAIL.
  • 00:19:56.418 --> 00:19:57.686
  • I HAVE WATCHED,
  • 00:19:57.686 --> 00:19:59.087
  • I HAVE WALKED WITH THESE WOMEN
  • 00:19:59.087 --> 00:20:00.555
  • AS THEY LITERALLY,
  • 00:20:00.555 --> 00:20:02.057
  • WITH THEIR FINGERNAILS,
  • 00:20:02.057 --> 00:20:03.292
  • SCRATCHED THROUGH THE EARTH
  • 00:20:03.292 --> 00:20:05.527
  • TRYING TO FIND ANYTHING --
  • 00:20:05.527 --> 00:20:07.329
  • ANYTHING THAT THEY COULD GIVE
  • 00:20:07.329 --> 00:20:09.164
  • TO THEIR CHILDREN.
  • 00:20:09.164 --> 00:20:10.565
  • AND THE SIGHT
  • 00:20:10.565 --> 00:20:12.134
  • OF THESE PRECIOUS LITTLE ONES
  • 00:20:12.134 --> 00:20:13.502
  • WHOSE HAIR HAS TURNED RED
  • 00:20:13.502 --> 00:20:14.803
  • THROUGH LACK
  • 00:20:14.803 --> 00:20:16.171
  • OF GOOD NUTRITION,
  • 00:20:16.171 --> 00:20:17.572
  • WHO HAVE THAT LITTLE
  • 00:20:17.572 --> 00:20:18.874
  • DISTENDED BELLY,
  • 00:20:18.874 --> 00:20:21.810
  • WITH STICK THIN ARMS AND LEGS,
  • 00:20:21.810 --> 00:20:23.612
  • IT'S HEARTBREAKING.
  • 00:20:23.612 --> 00:20:24.846
  • THAT'S WHY
  • 00:20:24.846 --> 00:20:26.415
  • I LOVE MISSION FEEDING.
  • 00:20:26.415 --> 00:20:27.783
  • I'D HEARD ABOUT IT FOR YEARS.
  • 00:20:27.783 --> 00:20:29.051
  • I'D CONTRIBUTED FOR YEARS
  • 00:20:29.051 --> 00:20:31.520
  • BUT WHEN I GOT TO FIRST STEP
  • 00:20:31.520 --> 00:20:33.388
  • ON THE GROUND IN AFRICA
  • 00:20:33.388 --> 00:20:34.990
  • AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE
  • 00:20:34.990 --> 00:20:36.491
  • BETWEEN A MALNUTRITION CLINIC
  • 00:20:36.491 --> 00:20:37.993
  • AND WHERE MISSION FEEDING
  • 00:20:37.993 --> 00:20:39.294
  • HAS BEEN SET UP,
  • 00:20:39.294 --> 00:20:40.629
  • IT CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER.
  • 00:20:40.629 --> 00:20:41.997
  • I'LL NEVER BE THE SAME.
  • 00:20:41.997 --> 00:20:43.332
  • SO I'M ASKING YOU TO HELP US.
  • 00:20:43.332 --> 00:20:44.666
  • LET'S EMPTY
  • 00:20:44.666 --> 00:20:46.201
  • THOSE MALNUTRITION CLINICS
  • 00:20:46.201 --> 00:20:48.737
