Adonai Child Rehabilitation is a Christian faith-based ministry in Kalaymyo, Burma that was established in May 2016. This ministry creates a place of rehabilitation for children and teenagers from various backgrounds like orphans, unwanted children, street children, and poor children.
unknown woman donates mustard leaves
On Sunday morning in the second week of February, a woman we didn't know came to the ACR orphanage. She brought small mustard leaves to donate for the orphans' curry. She is from Tahan village, a place that's very far away.
She said, "I felt God's call to visit and pray for the orphans." We were so glad to see her visiting us and praying for us. She donated her mustard leaves to our orphanage. She also laid hands on Rev. Thang, the director of the ACR orphanage, and blessed him and anointed him to boldly step further by keeping faith in God. She exhorted and gave a word from the Lord to encourage the ministry of the orphans.
Young Man Gives Gourd
A young man named Mr. Biak Nun Sang, who is a farmer from Hakhalay, donated a beautiful gourd, which he himself planted at his farm. We were so glad to have such a blessing. Even though it was a small gift, we appreciated his heart of loving the orphans. We wish and pray that God will multiply his farming and harvest.
He promises that he will give some portion of sunflower oil to our orphans when he finishes the harvest. We are so excited to hear from him such a generous word. We are praying blessings for Mr. Biak and his family.
Lian Lian's Mouth Disease
Last month, our orphan Lian Lian suffered from severe pain in his mouth. It looked like his mouth disease might have been caused from lack of vitamins. We did not have the finances to bring him to a doctor, so we just trusted the Lord for his healing.
We prayed every night, and after some weeks, his mouth and lips were getting dryer and better. We praise the Lord. God is kind and heard our prayer. Now Lian Lian can eat food without any pain.
School Exams done
All our orphans attend school at No. 4 Ah Lah Kah, Kalaymyo. The school year goes from June to February. Now all our orphans have finished their final exams. Mrs. Rev. Thang helped with their studies, revising their lessons and letting them recite without looking at their books. To prepare the orphans for their final exams, she tested them in reciting and writing, and they improved a lot. They have all done their final exam well. The results will be out right after the Burmese Water Festival, which is in the second week of April. We believe they will all pass their classes.
As the final exams are over and the summer holiday is coming, we have planed a very good program for our orphans for the three months of March to May. We hired a good English teacher to teach them basic English grammar and mathematics. And Mrs. Rev. Thang will be teaching the vernacular Chin language. The Chin language is also very important; they need to be able to write in the vernacular language so that they can read the Bible in their own language. We hope this summer program will be a real benefit for our orphans.
We thank God, all 11 of our orphans are growing in their relationship with God. They clearly know who is the creator, and they fully believe that Jesus died for them and gives salvation for all mankind. They totally surrender their lives to Jesus, they know how to pray, and they love to hear God's word. They obey the word of God as their life principles. Praising God and reading the Bible is a joy and delicious food for them. We are so glad to see their progress in their daily Christian lives.
thanks to private donors
We express our heartfelt thanks to sister Adar from Melbourne of Australia for her regular donation of the equivalent of $72 to help the orphans' needs. We pray for her career and family.
Secondly we express our thanks to Mr. Simeon from Midland, TX of the United States for his monthly donation of $50 to meet the needs of our orphans. We also pray for his job.
Our prayer needs
As we step into 2017, we are worried that we may not be able to carry on our mission of helping the orphans in this new year. We are about to accept new orphans, which would increase our total to 15 children. We are looking to God for His provision to carry on our God-given mission to serve and help the orphans. We believe God will move the hearts of His people to stretch out their hands to help, build and transform the lives of the orphans. God bless you all.
