It is a great privilege to lead others to care for orphans in need. It is heartbreaking to see these babies in the orphanage where we serve packed in cribs and needing so much much attention. The workers do their best, but they are far outnumbered. Seeing firsthand the need for help, I am certain that God calls us to be the ones to care for the orphan in distress in a variety of ways. He says this is pure and undefiled religion in His sight. So… we do it. We get to be a part of God’s redemptive story. These children have been rescued to the orphanages where we serve and we get to be the touch of Jesus to these little ones in their formative days and early years of their lives. We get to serve for a limited time, and pray that others continue to come and serve. One day after another, people coming in Jesus’ name can be a part of God’s plan for healing and restoration for these little ones to grow up and hopefully to serve Him with their lives.
Enjoy a few of my favorite photos of this year caring for these precious ones.
