Orphanage Life in Myanmar

Dear Friend,

Every month we receive newsletters and photos from our orphanages informing us on orphanage life and of what went on in the lives of the children that month. I’ve collected a few of those photos this month (mainly from Myanmar) to share with you so that you can get a taste of what orphanage life is like for hundreds of Orphan’s Tear-sponsored children. New dorms, gardens, Bibles, mosquito nets, desks… none of this would have been possible without you. On behalf of the children, thanks so much! Read and may your life be blessed!

A Glimpse of Orphanage Life…

They all pray for the second conference to be able to held next year at the same time.”
