BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT...




More often than not, the children of the poor neighboring families were in worse shape than the orphans themselves. Everytime we went to an orphanage, the neighborhood kids would peer through the gates or over the walls, longing to come in and play. The children in this picture were watching sadly from their straw home as we handed out donations at the orphanage. Fortunately, we had enough for everyone-- including them. I just hope the orphans' JOY will spread to them. The worst thing I heard this whole trip was a comment by a poor neighborhood kid to an orphan at Hannah's Home: "You're lucky your mom died." Please pray for these children who are so desperately poor, they know not what they say...
