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.
We give God the glory for His guidance and provision for our Adonai orphan project. We are so honored by our generous donor organization Agape Fish Fund for their concern, love, and donations to help meet the needs of daily nutrition and educational development for the vulnerable children in Myanmar. And we give thanks to all our private local donors and donors from abroad who are involved through prayer and donations to support the emotional and spiritual development of the Adonai orphans. Through their generous support, our orphans have been growing in health and in knowledge of the Bible. The orphans have access to education and realize their potential only through the cooperation of God’s people around the world. We heartily wish God's blessings to be bestowed upon them.
Right after they get up from bed in the morning, the first thing they do is open their books to review their exercises. Then they have breakfast and go to school. When they come home in the afternoon they do their assignments, and they can help each other. The ones in the higher grades can teach the ones in the lower grades. Now they have a high ambition to become literate men and women when they grow up. We thank God that we can reach our educational goals for the orphans.
Our mission is not only for their educational development, but also for their self-discipline and morality. As children, they were used to bringing home books, pens, etc., which were not purchased by us. Every day we check their bags. If we find something that doesn't belong to them, we ask them, "Whose is this?" They used to reply, "A friend of mine gave it to me" or "I found it at school." We told them not to ask other friends for things, and not to take items that other children lost. Afterward they did not bring home any extra pens, books, or pencils. We have also taught them to wash their hands before meals, and how to keep their books neat and clean. Their other personal belongings such as slippers, bags, and raincoats are all kept well and maintained properly. They have improved a lot in self-discipline.
We create an opportunity for the orphans to personally share and sing songs during devotions. We also create a time of fellowship during devotions, not just listening. They share, they sing, they dance, and they have fun. This really helps the orphans grow emotionally and spiritually. They have really grown in their relationship with God.
Nutrition and Good Health
We are thankful to our donor organization and to all the donors who help meet the children's needs of daily nutrition and their education. Because of the good nutrition, they have a healthier life and are able to go to school. Without the good food, they might have poor health. Before they came to Adonai, they had never seen meat at all. But in the orphanage, they can eat different meat like chicken, beef, fish, and eggs. Thank God now their bodies have become stronger, and their complexions have become fairer and brighter.
One of our orphans, Ms. Thian, used to eat three plates at one meal. It's wonderful she has such a good appetite. But we said, "It's OK, just eat at your level." She really enjoys being in the orphanage because there is good nutrition and good administration.
Thank God, none of the orphans got sick in the month of July. It is by God’s protection and the nourishment from the good food. However, Mr. Lian suffered from sores on his head. We suspected this might be because of some skin bacteria. We gave him some tablets and applied some ointment, and now it has totally disappeared.
mentally Challenged Orphan
Among the orphans, we have one boy, Mr. Thla Hnin, who is mentally challenged. Mr. Thla still likes attending school every day and wearing the school uniform. He is in grade 3, but he does not write well or follow his teacher during class. I met his teacher Madam Ngun to understand his mental weakness. Madam Ngun is a Christian teacher and she really helps us. She does not give him any pressure regarding the lessons. My wife and I take care of him nicely and encourage him to not give up. Slowly he is improving his skill. Please pray for our orphan Mr. Thla to overcome his mental challenge.
We thank Pastor Bawi who gave pineapples to our orphans. He said the orphans might be lacking vitamin C and E, and they may be in need of eating fruit. So he donated three pineapples to our orphans. The orphans were so glad to enjoy the very sweet pineapples. They are praying for God’s blessings for Pastor Bawi's family.
We thank Ms. Mya Htwe who donated vermicelli soup to our orphans on her birthday. This girl is Buddhist, but she loves the orphans and wanted to contribute some vermicelli snack for her birthday celebration. The orphans really enjoyed drinking the vermicelli soup.
Thanks to Individual Donors
Special thanks to Mrs. Adar of Melbourne for her generous support of the equivalent of USD $72 per month. We pray God’s blessings upon her family. And special thanks to our admired brother Mr. Simeon from Texas for his regular donation of $50 per month help meet the needs of the orphans' ministry. We are so glad for their generous support. May God bless them abundantly.
As we're in the rainy season, mosquitoes are very dangerous in Myanmar. Please pray for the good health and safety of our orphans.
