Love Villa Orphaning center is sponsor by International Children Care (ICC) from Australia There are five houses. 87 Orphans with care givers, who can be like their parents…the youngest baby was 5 months old and the oldest one is in college. Most of the children are from around the neighborhood, survival from the cyclone and majority are from the Buddhist family. It was a blessing for me to spent time with them and talked to them with a small new year gift and cash for the little ones.
In my hand is a 5 months old baby and the youngest one in this house… All these children live in this house and in front of me is their father
In front of me is their mother & caregiver for all these children. There are 15 children in this house…
In my hand is ten months old and the youngest one, two more children are two years old over.
I asked to their parents, “Are they good children?” Yes! There are 15 children and the youngest one is 6 and the oldest one is 16 year old. Some of them are playing some where..
They were so happy to received the new year gift…
The little one is in her mom’s hand. Is she cute….
There are 12 older children but the rest of them went for Outreach program in other villages…..
She is a school nurse, never get married. She adopted 5 children.
I asked their mom, “Why do you adopt all these children?” She said, “I feel so pity for them, if I don’t take them, they will die” The two oldest help their little brothers and sister… As soon as I saw them, I cry and cry….
Myanmar’s Government Orphan House Parahitah orphan house When I was around ten years old, our church used to have a panic every year in the beautiful campus of the Parahitah orphan house which is own by the Myanmar Government. I used to see many boys in this campus, and most of boys looked sad and lonely, sitting alone by the lake. I can never forgot those children faces in my eyes, and these memories stay in my heart and I always said to myself, one day I want to come back to this place in the future and spend time with them. I am so happy that I could visit to them.
These 32 children are from all over Myanmar. They are not belong to any religion but since it is a government orphan, they have to be the Buddhist way of life..
We were talking about how can Adventist seminary help these children. So the care giver said, “These children need help to study English. So we are planning to send some teachers and students in the future…We need to get permition from the government office so please kindly remember them in your prayers…
Longyis and chocolates gift for all the children..
Cards from Forest Lake Church’s Adventure children…
I gave a short speech on why I wanted to give a visit to them. These two men are their only care givers. These children must be hungry for love, care and God’s love. Let’s pray that one day we all will share with them that God is always there for them…..Most of them are the same age with my two sons…I wish, I can see them again in the future…
They say a prayer for all the donors…I wish I can tell how much God loves them…I hope that one day I will get chance to see and tell them a wonderful story of our Father who is in heaven and taking care of them.
