“I believe that I am doing what I was designed to do” said Rick Miller, our lead missionary. Over the past several months, Rick has been regularly meeting with Lifegate’s radio personnel, pastors, and community members, to teach the Word of God through story. “We talk about how the Bible is reflected in culture and so on.  [Even though I am the teacher], I am learning every week.”

Sweet Umaru came to the orphanage just over a month ago. Within minutes of his arrival, he was warmly welcomed; the younger kids held his hand to comfort him, and the older kids took him for bicycle rides. Today, when he’s not at school or doing homework, he’s eating, playing, laughing, running, or jumping. Please pray that he continues to build bonds with the caregivers and his orphan brothers and sisters.
