On Tuesday afternoon, Rosamita’s father came back as he had promised, with her birth certificate and health care records. We took him and Rosamita to meet with Henry, the director of Children’s Hope Home, at 4:30 p.m. As soon as we entered the compound, we experienced love, joy and peace. We were welcomed by the children, who were very happy, clean and, most of all, loved. There are 50 children who are in this home that was begun after the earthquake in 2010. They have healthcare facilities, a school nearby, and a large piece of land for the children to play, learn and grow. Every week, they have Sunday services on the property. Children’s Hope is the orphan ministry of First Baptist Church, Montgomery, Alabama. Based on James 1:27, it encompasses Foster Care, Adoption and Orphan Care. The mission of Children’s Hope is to engage the Church in carrying out God’s command to care for orphans.
Christella came to the house today and knew what had happened yesterday. We feel she does understand the situation and knows that Rosamita needs daily care and love. Please pray for both parents and little Rosamita.
