Orphans about Agape lessons

I like “Christian ethic” lessons … they tell us about mercifulness and God's love. I become much more peaceful and relived.

An orphan's life

 

Orphanage ministry is not easy, but let me just say this: even if you are tired, GO. If you feel like you’re not up to it, still go, simply go and love them. Just be there for them...

I work in an orphanage for the very smallest children, from 1 year to 3-4 years old. I teach Bible lessons there three times a week. Many Christians that I meet are not supportive of my ministry. They don’t believe that such little children are capable of believing in God. However, I know that they’re mistaken.

 

 

Soon Agape Ministries will celebrate it's 10th anniversary.  In some ways it seems like a long time, in others, not long at all. When we stop to consider -  the tears and laughter, the heights of joy and depths of despair...it's by God’s grace we have learned and grown through it all.

 

 

Thank you, Lord. Thank you for reminding me that my ministry here is never pointless...
