THEIR EYES WERE SMILING!


 “For the first time I have new clothes that have never been worn before”

“I remember when I didn't have a shirt, so I borrowed my sister’s, and they laughed at me”

Thank you Jesus, for letting us witness these children’s testimonies!




It is times like this that I realize being here is a gift from God!  We may think we are here to serve Him, but this is our God allowing us to be part of His plan.  

 Allowing us to be the messenger and distributor of these Christmas gifts, doing what our organization’s name says; Love In Action.  God has guided us here to distribute His gifts for His children.  These are gifts from God and have made their way here through many people and in many different ways.



   A group of ladies in our church made little girl’s dresses and shipped them here from many miles away.  Many people sent boys and girls underwear so they could be distributed continents away, and some gifts are from financial contributions from loving and caring people.  When we all come together to serve and care for the orphaned and widowed, we are living scripture!

James 1:27
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.




Needless to say, the children were excited and thankful for these new things.  We had a wonderful praise and worship service on a recent Sunday evening where the children were invited to give their testimonies which allowed us to hear some of their stories, and to see what God has done in their lives.



Yes, we could see their smiles in their eyes! 
 I think we saw the love of Jesus!
