I can’t get Mary out of my mind. About a week ago 6 year old Mary was visiting her uncle. Mary is one of the 600 orphans in Indian that we care for through Global Partners. Because our children’s homes have no legal rights over the children, to be in good standing with the community sometimes we allow a child to visit a relative if he or she has any and they request. Her uncle is very poor man but a very trust worthy man. While he was out working, Mary was stolen from his home. The police said that many children in that area have been stolen. Little girls make a profit and are sold into the sex industry.

They said they have never found any of the stolen children.

I know the statistics and I know this happens all of the time throughout the world, but this girl we know and I can’t get Mary out of my mind. She was a new orphan waiting to be sponsored.. we have over 200 that need monthly sponsors now. Without the children’s homes the fate of these orphaned and abandoned children is horrific. Most of the girls will be abused or sold and the boys the same or become street children or thieves for someone else.

When you see this so close…when, you know the child’s name…. somehow the reality of what is going on in the world really sits in and everything else falls into perspective.

We don’t have a picture of Mary but here is picture of another child that lives in one of our homes about the same age as Mary.

Help him to defend the poor, to rescue the children of the needy, and to crush their oppressors. Psalm 72:4-5

Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows. Isaiah 1:17

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. James 1:27

If you want to provide clothing, shoes, and basic needs for an unsposored child this month please give here: . It is $30/per child for the Christmas gift or any amount you want to give will help. 100% of the funds giving go toward what they are designated to with GPPD.
