Repairing roads. Visiting the sick and praying for them. Taking vegetables to those without food. Sharing the gospel. These are just some of the activities that your sponsored children have been doing. We have some pretty amazing kids! When you support a child through Orphan’s Tear, not only are you making a difference in the life of a child, you are also impacting a community.
Below are a few of the reports we’ve recently received from our orphanages (in broken English, of course):

New Eden – Praying, Fasting, and Sharing the Good News
In January from 2-4 we went the place called Camel Mount for fast and pray with 15 children. We spent two days on mount and asking to God how would we step in the year 2010. Also each of us have commitment for the Lord’s work as long as we are in this entire world. The Lord fill with us with His Holy Ghost during the time we stayed on that mount, all of us happy and glad to receive the revelation of God for the future. After coming down from that Camel Mount many activities of Orphanage are changed. The main routine for the Orphanage is as follows:
1.) We have two main worship services, at night and morning. During this services, we prayed for all the people who cares, help, support, guide, love and all the needy i.e., orphans, widows, deaf, blind, ministers, preachers, etc.
2.) After their school, according to their name list, visiting to church member, sick, weak, and comfort them by the word of God and praying for them.
3.) Every weekend all the people have an opportunities to visit member, share the gospel to people as much as they could reach. When the children are sharing the good news people give attention more than other (Adult). Thanks God for that. All the children are decided to share the gospel to the people as long as they are in this world. Praise the Lord for that.
I hope you were blessed as you read those reports.
I’m also happy to report that excellent progress is being made on two orphanage dorms that we have under construction in Myanmar, thanks to contributions to the Dorms for Orphanages Fund and the Orphan’s Tear Special Gifts Fund. God bless everyone who is making those miracles possible, and to every child sponsor!
For the Children,
