Orphan Care Program Christmas Gift Report

This Christmas 18 children received gifts, 16 of which were already registered in our Orphan Care Program; the other two are newly registered this month. The gifts included: clothes, chocolates, apples, milk, other nutritious foods, books, and toys. Our co-workers spent a lot of thought to find good yet inexpensive gifts for the children. Some local church brothers and sisters also helped to pack the gifts for the children.

 

 

Ready, set, go!

 

Gifts and blessings were delivered into each child’s hands.

We like apples and chocolate, as well as the toys and books! Our new coats are very warm.

 

 

 

 

On the morning of December 26th, we delivered Christmas presents to Hong Xin's house, but he was not at home. His grandmother was moved by the gesture and said, "You pay too much for this child." We told her other people paid for these gifts and we were only responsible for delivering them. The grandmother's little sister, who does not believe in the Lord, was also moved and said, "Christians are so nice!" We shared a bit of the gospel with them and invited them to attend our Christmas party. On the 27th, they attended the party. Hong Xin was very shy about getting photographed, but we could tell he loved his new jacket and looked handsome in it. He is especially fond of the books we gave him.

 

 

 

 

 

On December 27th we went to De Sheng's home to deliver his presents. When he saw us walk into the yard, he was very happy to greet us. After entering the house, we gave him a red jacket, which he put on immediately. It fits him perfectly and he loves it. His father advised him to keep it safe until school starts, but he was too excited to take it off. Both father and son were very grateful for the gifts, and when we handed them the chocolates De Sheng's father said, "These are very expensive, I have never bought him these before." De Sheng then took a piece of chocolate and stuffed it into his father's mouth. They never had chocolate before! We took De Sheng to go celebrate Christmas with us. We were touched by the love of God seeing a son and father so grateful and so full of joy.

 

 

 

 

Yang Guang's family is very grateful for the gifts we gave to him. Yang Guang was also very happy to wear the jacket we gave him and would not take it off, but rather jumped up and down with excitement. He was so happy that in one breath he opened and ate two chocolates, and then drank a carton of milk. The whole family is thankful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we were delivering Xiao Meng her presents, we were greeted by her grandmother. Her grandmother was particularly moved by the gifts and said that their family is very grateful for everything. In the past, Xiao Meng's grandfather did not accept our ministry and rejected us because we believe in Jesus, but now he welcomes us. Xiao Meng's family even took part in our Christmas party and she was able to have a lot of fun!

 

 

 

The co-workers were able to feel that all the children loved their gifts and were very happy. Many of these children had never received a gift before, let alone a gift on Christmas. Their family members were all moved and said that this was a very special Christmas and New Year. Each child was able to receive wonderful gifts and warmth this Christmas. We thank God for His amazing love, and give thanks to everyone who helped to buy these Christmas gifts!

The events in China due to the One-Child policy are heart-breaking and at times it is easy to get discouraged and lose hope.  But when we stop to consider the heart and mission of God we can press forward.  Hebrews 12:1 says: "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."...

For decades, China has shrouded its severe human trafficking problem in silence. But the U.S. State Department’s 2013 Trafficking in Persons Report ended that silence last week, downgrading China to the worst possible rating, Tier 3. Thoroughly researched and brutally honest, the report exposes China’s failure to address primary causes of human trafficking, including the One-Child Policy. The report declares:
