Save The Orphan.

Many of my good friends are on their way home right now from Africa. They have all been through an emotional roller coaster that is harder than I can imagine. I have feared posting anything online about their trip for their safety. They are in Sierra Leone doing all they can to save children that were brought into their lives over the last few years. But they are in a country that is so poor and desolate that there are few they can trust. They have been accused of kidnapping one moment and then turn around to see hands outstretched, begging them for salvation.

They have purchased a building to serve as an orphanage for almost 100 children. But moving these children from their current facility is much harder than anyone anticipated. The government seems to be little to no help, even though these children are living in horrendous conditions. My friends witnessed a plate of food set in the middle of the room, 2 boys placed in front of it and expected to fight. Who ever wins, gets the food. The little ones have been plugged so that they do not soil their diapers as often. And their poor stomachs are severely backed up.

And I don't even know the half of it. I am going to attach a link so that you can read more about their journey yourself. I will post more as I am assured I can without putting them in danger. They need prayers more than anything right now. But the facility they will provide these children will be life-changing. Now, they just need to be able to move the children there. These kids have never had a bed... no blanket... no mattress... no pillow... no nothing. Not to mention the lack of food.

If you want to help, be assured you will know EXACTLY where your donations will go. You can follow the progress daily. These are just ordinary people like you and me, who stumbled into an extraordinary circumstance. They found themselves in a situation in which they were unable to turn a blind eye. They have children and families of their own. But are working tirelessly to make sure these orphans have a chance at life.

We pray God will be with them in all that they do !!

Matthew 25 :

"Then the king will say to those at his right hand, "Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;

for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,

I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.'

Then the righteous will answer him, "Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink?

And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing?

And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?'

And the king will answer them, "Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'
