The Heaven’s Family Blog

About this blog:

Every month, Heaven’s Family helps far more people than we could ever highlight in our quarterly magazines. For that reason, this blog contains additional photos and stories of some of the “least of these” among our spiritual family whom we’ve recently been blessed to serve.

No One Tried to Help Us

“No one tried to help us,” lamented Khaw Leng Ting, a young mother who lives in rural Myanmar. Just a few months after joyfully giving birth to Mawia, her third child, tragedy struck—her husband died of malaria. Adding to that tragedy, her relatives didn’t offer her any support. Instead, they encouraged Khaw to send her children to an orphanage. After struggling for four years to keep her family together, Khaw felt she had no choice but to send her three children to a nearby orphanage in 2006.
