Orphanage Day is a highlight of our week, but more importantly, it’s a highlight of the children’s week. When our van drives into the courtyard, they are waiting eagerly- calling out “JieJie! GeGe! (Big sister! Big brother!)” running to give us hugs, taking us by the hands and pulling us up the stairs for a day of love and fun.
My, how these children love to be loved! Whether they’re being tickled….
(which is maybe their favorite part)
…these sweethearts thoroughly enjoy every moment of one-on-one attention.
Look at their happy faces…
…gaze into their eyes…
…bask in their shining smiles…
…and imagine what it would be like for each of them to have a family of their own and receive this kind of love and personal attention every day.
Each one of these darling children is waiting for a family.
Created in God’s image, each one of them is valuable and precious is His sight.
Are they precious in ours?
Please continue to pray fervently with us that the God who puts the lonely into families would provide a family for each one of these orphans- homes where Jesus is loved and His Word is taught.
What a day that will be for these children, when they have a home of their own and every day is better than Orphanage Day!
