Adjustment

To follow on my previous post, the three children from the other orphanage are here.  Yay!  They are malnourished and will need help to get healthy, but they are now in a safe environment.  Praise God!  The Housemothers here will work hard to help these children gain weight and health!  They will have a bit of an adjustment to make though…

During their time at the other orphanage, they lacked in toys and consistent food and so many other things that should be a part of a child’s life.  Now they are here and they will have a regular schedule with three meals a day, snacks, play group, love, and being cared for.  They aren’t used to this.  Until they know the three meals a day will come consistently, they will probably scarf down their food and grab for other children’s food.  They will grab toys they want to play with and not want to share with others, as they have never had this before.  It is quite the adjustment.  Who knows how long it will take for them to adjust.  Fortunately, time as shown they do adjust as they have a consistent routine.

Please pray for these children, that they will adjust.  That they will learn they won’t go hungry or needy or unloved.  Pray for the housemothers and play group coordinators to have patience with these children and to love on them, as that is what they really need.  Pray these children will grow into healthy and happy children and that they will know the love of Christ.  Thank you.

“But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.'” ~ Matthew 19:14 (ESV)
