Christmas in August is Just as Fun

Orphan Care ProgramRecently, we were privileged to pass out 140 Orphan Care Packs. It took weeks to purchase, sort, prepare the packs for delivery to two different remote villages. After driving for hours, we arrived to a crowd of church and community members singing praise songs and surrounding our truck. Hands reached out to shake ours, children looked at us curiously, and pastors welcomed us warmly.

Each child in the orphan program received a backpack filled with all sorts of goodies–a plate, water bottle, mosquito net, blanket, toys, school supplies and much more. When the children were asked what their favorite item was, they replied, “Everything! All of it! It’s all my favorite!” For many of these children it was probably the first gift they had ever received and we hope and pray that the real Gift, the Gift of Jesus’ Love, will be their experience as they are blessed by the orphan care program.
