Psalm 68:5-6 “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing” (NIV).
God loves the orphan.
This came clear to us when an opportunity came up to help rescue a baby from a certain fate of human trafficking. In a much troubled area of Myanmar, a pregnant, tired and poor mother already had six mouths to feed. With no husband, she concluded that she had no choice but to sell the baby that was in her womb. The plight of this woman and her yet to be born child came to our attention in late 2012. Through God’s grace, we were able to help rescue this beautiful child and see her safely adopted by an indigenous Christian couple who could have no children of their own. When we saw her in late March 2014, she was doing very well! Praise God for his goodness! – Rob & Judy
Update – Fall 2016
This little girl is now 4 years old and is thriving in her home with her adoptive parents in Myanmar. These parents happen to be our key ministry leaders in this area. Last year, we helped them rescue a second child, an abused and very sick little boy who was about to be sold (possibly for body parts) into a nearby country. We rejoice in how God is providing for this family through our support team. Thank you to all who are giving to the Lord! These two little lives have indeed been changed for God’s glory!
