Title: A measure of sacrifice
Author: Bowles, Margaret Elizabeth
Abstract: When people give to a good cause they usually give and forget about it, however that is not always the case. For one family from Texas giving was much more. They chose to sacrifice all that they knew to help those in need. They left behind all they knew and moved to Xai-Xai Mozambique Africa. In one short year they have set up a church, two care points that feed over 500 kids each day, a community center and a pre-school. Teaching the people of Xai-Xai to be resourceful, help each other, and helping them rebuild after years of civil war and a flood that nearly wiped out the entire city. Becoming a part of community and sharing the love of God with those who may have never even heard the name of Jesus. Putting into practice, exactly what is says in the Bible, to be the hands and feet of Jesus and not just setting up camp within the church building. This is a story of the Stauber family.
