Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
One of our students, Elda, came to us from an orphanage in the Central American country of Honduras where she had been working for several years. Her duties at the orphanage included: getting the girls ready for the day, making sure they were fed, playing with them, teaching them school, and caring for them. She was "Mamá" to 30 girls. Feeling inadequate in her teaching abilities, she started looking for a school to attend to equip herself for the better of the children, and by the wonders of God, she came to us.
Elda has been such a blessing to us these past three years as she has blossomed even more as a person. Her organization skills and leadership qualities have put her as a key member on both our APEN (child evangelism) and Leadership teams. This year she will be graduating with certificates and her plan is to head back to Honduras and apply the knowledge and skills she has learned to her taking care of the young girls; also, one of our other prized students, Lidia, who is graduating with a bachelors this May, will be accompanying Elda to work at the orphanage.
Elda has told us how she had never talked to any of the little girls about becoming saved before because she had never known how to approach the topic, however, now that she is more than experienced in the area of child evangelism, she is most excited to return for the reason of talking to the girls about Jesus. Lidia, also, will be able to evangelize to the girls with her excellence in this area.
These two ladies are running into a make-or-break problem, however; they have to raise enough funds to get passports and travel down to Honduras. These two compassionate, benevolent young women have a selfless dream and calling to help these young girls grow up with love, and if it is in God's will, they will go.
