Harvest is a time to pause and reflect on God’s goodness and provision in the world. But it is also a time that challenges Christians to act, following God’s example of radical kindness and mercy to those in need. These Harvest Resources help to explore how your small group, church organisation or church can get involved in reaching out to some of the most marginalised people in the world today.
Nagammal (pictured below) has leprosy. She is from south India, and her ‘home’ for many years was a goat’s shed. A community worker from The Leprosy Mission found her during severe flooding. Her ulcers, caused by leprosy, had become badly infected, and she was hungry, having not eaten for over 4 days. She was scared and alone. Her situation was desperate. Nagammal, like so many who live with leprosy, was in need of radical kindness.
