Photo #6 - Orphans ministering to orphans
Today's Picture of the Year requires us to share more than one picture. Our friend Angie helps direct a children's home in Guyana, South America. Families in North America purchased Christmas gifts for the kids and we shipped them down there just in time for Christmas! Several people helped with special donations to an area of Guyana called "Plastic City." This community is full of single and double orphans and poverty is the norm.
Angie shared these needs with her children at the home and their first response was to share their Christmas gifts with these kids who otherwise would not receive a gift. The week before Christmas Angie and other caregivers took the oldest children to Plastic City where they walked through mud to minister to deliver the gifts. Orphans - ministering to orphans. How beautiful!
