Inside the orphanage, there were about 48 girls from age 5 -15 who have been abandoned by their parents on the streets. The girls were craving motherly love and affection they had been lacking their whole lives. Excited and curious, they wanted to know everything about us, from our occupation, to favorite color and song. We spent some time talking to them and learned their interests. Coloring books, crayons, socks and tooth brushes were distributed amongst them, to their unyielding delight. Our hearts were deeply touched by this experience.
Imagine falling from a coconut tree, loosing all sense of feeling from neck down and being left for dead on the street. This is how Mathew came to find one of the men in his care. He was turned away by the first doctor, who felt the man had no chance of living. Mathew was not willing to give up. While the Little Flower Mercy Home is not a hospital or nursing home, he does not refuse people in need of help. Three weeks later a miracle occurred, and he began to walk again. This only one in hundreds of stories. The key is LOVE and FAITH.
