JESUS NAMED US ORPHANS UNLIMITED…
There is little doubt WHY God named us that. For those who don’t know the story behind the name, I can explain very simply. In the USA for a break way back in the late 1999 time, I knew the time was near for me to file as a charitable organisation. But I had no idea what I was to call this ministry.
A simple prayer went up asking for the name God wanted to call us, and then I waited. That night, 2 a.m. on the dot, I sat straight up in bed from a sound sleep, saw a vision of a limitless sea of children’s faces, and heard the words Orphans Unlimited in my spirit. There was never any question in my mind that I had heard correctly, as orphaned/abandoned children keep showing up at our door each week.
AND THE INFANTS KEEP COMING
This week 4 more orphaned infants showed up at our door. Sadly mothers who have their babies at home, don’t always get the post partum care they need and complications set in which overwhelms their bodies.
Three week old Ancha and 8 week old Papaito are prime examples. PTL these 2 have family who loves them, and went “the extra mile” to care for them.
Ancha’s grandmother asked help from another suckling mother, who nursed her until the family could travel to Balama from 17 miles away. This is what we see most of the time.
Papaitos family scraped together $6 to buy a can of powdered milk at their local market. It was a miracle this little one tolerated it, and didn’t get diarrhea.
Both are now on formula and doing just fine.

Ancha, lost her mother 4 days after her birth. Granny will now raise her.
On average, we have families bring Social Services documents weekly for 2 to 3 infants, plus older orphans, who need our food assistance program.
Just today, we had grandparents bring us their 1 year old orphaned grandchild. They said he wouldn’t sleep because they didn’t have enough food to feed him. We organized baby food, and a gift of corn flour, beans, and salt for this family. They are now registered in our weekly food program.
We know that the “sea of children’s faces” will continue until the Lord’s return. Our staff and I are totally dedicated to meeting their needs, 1 child at a time.
THANK YOU FOR FILLING UP EMPTY TUMMIES WITH YOUR LOVE GIFTS!
It makes our job so easy when we know we can give what is desperately needed so these little ones can survive.
