Catching Up!

You'd never guess it, but in the above picture, Brenda was not yet rescued. She was participating in a feeding program in Guatemala supported by Heaven's Family. As our partner organization worked with her, it became apparent that Brenda was being abused. Instead of seeing progress with her, the partner saw that she was continuing to be malnourished, that her hair was falling out, and that the orange tint in what should have been black hair was not going away.

A minefield of dog feces and a diarrhea-filled diaper were just a few of the items we had to tiptoe around today to get to young Joseph's home.

The work was dangerous and Sharon has many scars—physical as well as emotional. She longed for a better future for her daughter.

Successful surgery for twins

The four-year-old twins in the photo, Maria and Zainab, were born in May 2018 in Sierra Leone with both of their femurs bowing. They were diagnosed with Blount's disease. Thankfully, it was fixable! With surgery, both girls would be able to walk normally. But the girls' father earns just $120 a month as a teacher, making the $8,000 cost of the two surgeries completely unaffordable for their family.

Crossing Mountains

Mr. and Mrs. Zhang work at a pig farm in rural China. Mr. Zhang has been a Christian for the past three years, but his wife remained resistant to the gospel.
