In America, many lounges, bars, restaurants, clubs, etc., offer the public discounted rates for a certain time they call the “Happy Hour”. Millions of people across this great nation enjoy the lower prices, if only for a short time.
In other places in the world, one hour of happiness may mean something entirely different. In India, especially at the Grace Children’s Home, it may mean having rice with vegetables, curry sauce, and occasionally, one hard-boiled egg. This is what a small offering can do for children without parents or parents unable to care for them for various reasons. It costs $1 per day to house, feed, and care for each orphan. When you have 35 to 40 orphans to care for it becomes a major monthly expense but God always provides.
Please note the smiles on the faces of these kids as they stand in line for food. Thanks for your giving and providing a “happy hour” for them. May God richly bless you!
At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. (Matthew 18:1-5)
First of all, please look at these two short videos. The first is Rev. Sikila Cornelius giving a tour of the orphanage. The 2nd one shows the children playing. Click on the links.
