Why is ALO Committed to Providing Homes?
Why is Asia’s Little Ones committed to providing homes for someone else’s children?
Because Jesus said…
25 Standing close to Jesus’ cross were his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 Jesus saw his mother and the disciple he loved standing there; so he said to his mother,
“He is your son.”
27 Then he said to the disciple, “She is your mother.” From that time the disciple took her to live in his home.
John 19:25–27, Good News Translation
Today, those standing near Jesus can still hear Him pleading for them to care for those left behind—the orphans, the needy, those without a safe place to go, the unloved, and the lonely.
Are you Jesus’ beloved disciple? Will you heed His call to care for needy children in Asia Pacific who wouldn’t have a home without help from obedient, caring disciples like you?
He is your son. She is your daughter. Take them into your heart. Help ALO give them a home.
Every kid deserves a home that is…
Happy Horizons Children’s Ranch, Cebu, Philippines
“Before my mother died, I promised her I would take care of my sisters and brothers. That’s why I asked God to bring us to a place where we could all be together. I thank the Lord for bringing all of us here—this wonderful place—Happy Horizons Children’s Ranch. I am blessed and privileged to be chosen from the many children who are victims of child abuse. God led me to this place where I found love, joy, and acceptance. How amazing!” —Amelita
King’s Garden Children’s Home, Bataan, Philippines
Since 1994 King’s Garden Children’s Home has given children from abusive home situations a chance to escape the fear and make something of their lives. Many are becoming leaders in the public schools because of the Christian influence and training they receive at the home.
Sihanoukville Children’s Home, Sihanoukville, Cambodia
“I thought for sure I would become homeless and my brothers and sisters would be scattered, never to be together again. Then someone came to take us to the Sihanoukville Children’s Home. At first I was very afraid. I asked myself why I needed to live with people I didn’t even know. But now I think it was God’s plan for my life. God lifted me out of the suffering and tears. He saw my problems and changed my life from the worst situation to a normal life, as other children have. I could not go to school before, because we had no money to pay for it. Now I go to school and have enough clothes to wear, plenty of food, a clean place to live, and good care. I have learned so much at the orphanage.”
Chiang Rai Children’s Home, Chiang Rai, Thailand
“Chiang Rai Children’s Home treats me like family and helps me learn to go in the right direction. I feel warm, safe, and comfortable here. I come from a Buddhist family, but in my new Christian school I heard about Jesus for the first time. The most important thing I have learned is to know Christ, growing and walking with Him every day.” —Suree
Treasure House, Fiji
Neesha spent her first four months at a hospital in Fiji—abandoned by her young single mother. Treasure House welcomed the baby girl into her first home. The staff cared for her; taught her to sing, laugh, walk, and talk; and loved her. They taught her about Jesus, prayed for her when she was sick, and sought a loving Christian family to provide her with a home of her own. When Neesha was three years old, God sent her a family with a mom and dad, three older siblings, a cat, and two dogs.
These are the personal stories of some children for whom ALO has helped to provide homes through the years. Many more children are orphaned, living on the streets or in deplorable conditions, and at risk. What will be the story of the child you help today with your gift to Asia’s Little Ones? Will you give to provide a safe, loving home for a child who desperately needs one?
