When an Orphanage is Too Full

Imagine running an orphanage and having to send away a child because you had no more room. Thanks to you, one orphanage director no longer has to do that. Read Transcript


Terry: HERE IN THE SEASIDE

VILLAGE IN SIERRA LEONE

MOST FAMILIES FISH FOR A

LIVING.

WE MET A YOUNG GIRL NAMED

AGNES, WHO'S FATHER WAS A

FISHERMAN.

BUT AS SOON AS SHE WAS BORN,

AGNES HAD ALMOST NO FAMILY

AT ALL.

AGNES' MOTHER DIED WHEN SHE

WAS BORN, AND HER FATHER

COULDN'T TAKE CARE OF HER.

SO SHE WAS LEFT WITH HER

GRANDMOTHER.

IT WAS NOT TOO EASY FOR

ME.

IT WAS DIFFICULT.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

AND HIS WIFE WANTED TO TAKE

AGNES IN, BUT THEY WERE

ALREADY RAISING TWO DOZEN

CHILDREN IN A SMALL

APARTMENT.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE ROOM FOR

AGNES TO LIVE THERE, SO

AGNES SPENT PART OF EACH DAY

PLAYING WITH THE OTHER

CHILDREN.

BUT AT THE END OF EVERY DAY,

SHE HAD TO LEAVE.

WHEN "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

HEARD ABOUT PASTOR JACOB

TAKING CARE OF SO MANY

CHILDREN IN SUCH A SMALL

SPACE, WE BUILT THEM A BRAND

NEW HOME.

THE CHILDREN HAVE BIG ROOMS

AND THEIR OWN BEDS HERE.

AND NOW AGNES CAN LIVE WITH

ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

BECOME HER FAMILY.

THROUGH YOUR HELP AND

SUPPORT, THESE CHILDREN HAVE

A DECENT HOME, GOOD FOOD TO

EAT, AND PLACES WHERE THEY

CAN STUDY AND LOOK FORWARD

TO A GREAT FUTURE.
