“Permit the children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.”
— Luke 18:16-17
Spending time with the children in the Children’s Center at La Maternidad de Maria is pure joy. The children are happy, smiling and loved by the staff who work tirelessly, feeding, bathing, dressing, diapering, playing and loving these children. One family who had a child born with a leg deformity brought him to the orphanage because they knew he would receive the care they could not provide for him. They visited him often and appreciated this opportunity for their child.
Please pray, this week, for children who are neglected or abused, and for their families to receive the help needed to break this cycle.
