Thang Hli Pai with a beaming smile.

Thang Hli Pai doesn’t remember what her parents look like. Her mother died giving birth to her. Her father died by snakebite before her first birthday. She was found by a missionary, who cradled baby Thang all the way to Bethel Orphanage in Kalaymyo.

That was 17 years ago. From a dark beginning has come a bright hope for Thang’s future. She just finished 10th grade—at the head of her class! Her hard work paid off. The bouquet of flowers she holds in the photo are part of the recognition she received for her accomplishment. Sharing in Thang’s achievement is a family from Illinois, faithful sponsors who have supported her in prayer and made her schooling possible.

I’m so thankful that the Lord keeps watch over orphans—even little babies who have no other hope but Him. Look at what the Lord has done with this girl!
