I wish I could share only happy news from the orphanages you help us support, but this month I have sad news. This sad news, however, is tempered by the hope we have in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We Will See Him Again
Ram Tang, a young man raised at Grace Children’s Home in Yangon, Myanmar, went to be with the Lord just before Christmas. Ram came to Grace as a little boy after his mother died and his bedridden father was unable to care for him.
Ram excelled at Grace. His favorite subject in school was history, and he loved soccer and playing the guitar. He turned 19 years old last August.
In January, the director of Grace wrote to us to tell us what had happened:
We were very grieved to hear of Ram’s passing, but rejoiced that he knew Jesus. Orphan’s Tear isn’t just about caring for the physical needs of orphans, but also for their spiritual needs. At Grace, Ram lived in an environment where the gospel was preached and all the children were taught to love and fear the Lord.
Ram’s case is very rare. When we adopt a new orphanage in a tropical climate, it is always our priority to make sure each child has a mosquito net. If you have given to the Orphan’s Tear Special Gifts Fund, you have helped protect children from malaria.
Thank you so much for not only giving to meet the physical needs of our orphans, but helping to meet their spiritual needs as well. Ram was blessed on earth, and now in heaven.
For His glory,
