Children of Zambia



“…if you spend yourself on behalf of the hungry, and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.” Isaiah 58:10

With the demeanor of a meak and quiet spirit, with just wispers in his voice, Oliver sits beside me as I teach him English colors and read him some Bible stories.¬†At age 9, Oliver (shown directly below), has been identified as a vulnerable child here in the villages. He and his younger sister, Monde, were both found with no food, in a home with no roof, in a village where they were unwanted. Even by their own mother. Love’s Door for All Nations, the organization we serve with, gladly welcomed them into their Children’s Home with a caring widow, named Hilda who has taken them in amongst her own children. He now has food, shelter, clothing, and school fees, but most importantly, a chance at life, and hope.

      Children look happy. Do they have intestinal parasites? Love from grandpa.

      • HI Grandpa! Thank you! Yes, they seem happy to me here too! They do have intestinal parasites! Although our team is working very hard to provide clean drinking water with bio sand filters, it is a process educating them on why the river water is contaminated and not appropriate for drinking and washing in. I miss you guys a lot and hope you are well! All my love from Zambia!

  • I am happy….these tears say that stream down my face. May we all find life in giving away our own…thanks Paula!

  • You guys are gifted with words as well as your work. I am so thankful (for a rare moment) that technology can let your light shine, and your work, all the way back to the states! Thank you.
