Hanging by a Thread No More

Sui Par’s father died when she was a little girl. Her mother is blind, and unable to care for her daughter. Completely destitute, they had nowhere to turn except to the Handicapped Care Center in Kalaymyo, Myanmar. Although neither handicapped nor completely orphaned, the director had compassion on Sui Par and her mother, inviting them to live at his orphanage for the past several years.

Now 19 years old, Sui has finished her schooling and is now an excellent weaver. She can earn about $40 a month, enough for her to support herself and her mother! Because Sui’s mother is a widow, Heaven’s Family’s Widows Fund bought them a simple home, a loom, and enough thread for her to start her our weaving business.

Because her father died and her mother couldn’t care for her, we also had compassion on Sui, and placed her in our child sponsorship program when she came to the Handicapped Care Center. A compassionate couple, in turn, showed their love for Jesus by sponsoring Sui throughout her school years. Now an adult, she is ready to take off on her own with a foundation of God’s love, and the knowledge that she has a spiritual family who also loves her.

Thank you to all sponsors who are making a difference in the lives of children just like Sui!

Elisabeth Walter
Director, Orphan’s Tear division
