New Life For Orphan Children

photo showing Alcyon holding MariaIt's hard to imagine what it’s like to be orphaned once…let alone have it happen to you twice in your short lifetime. That is a living reality for Sofia, Luis, Luciana and Isabella.

Thanks to support from faithful donors like you, these four children have joined the Los Pinos children's village in Guatemala. They came from one of the local orphanages that is closing.

Your response to the special appeal in December has been terrific! Thank-you so very much for your support of orphan children who needed you in a time of crisis! We want to share some exciting news with you because you are such a faithful supporter of this ministry.

Late last year the Children's Court in Guatemala asked us to take in a number of kids from two orphanages. The government was shutting these facilities.

If we could not help, the only alternative was to place the children in a jail adapted to serve as an orphanage. What a frightening position for these children. Not only had they lost their biological family, they were going to be orphaned all over again!

We were compelled to do anything we could, but we realized that we needed your help! While the Los Pinos children's village did have room for some of the children, there simply were not sufficient funds in the budget to match the need.

Your response to this crisis over the past several weeks has been truly amazing! Many of you gave an extra gift. One donor wants to help cover the cost of operating one additional home. That's fantastic!

We are very happy to report that already four children have been taken in from one of the orphanages that was closing. You can see them in the picture on this page. They are now experiencing a new life in the safe haven of the Los Pinos children's village.

What a huge blessing you have been to support these children! And we are not finished with the mission of mercy that you are enabling us to pursue! As funding allows, we continue taking in more children who are in need.

This is just a beginning. Your support has set us on a course to open another home on the Los Pinos campus. There are other children right now who are in the process of being welcomed into an ICC family, and more will be able to have a home because of your support. You are a blessing!
