What would you do if you were in a foreign country and a desperate man came up to you and asked you to take his child?
From an American standpoint, such an encounter is hard to imagine, but that’s exactly what happened to Larry Smith shortly after he and his family arrived in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Unable to do anything to help, Larry walked away from that meeting with a new burden for the thousands of impoverished children in Bangladesh.
The Smiths’ incredible story is featured this month at Faces of Eurasia, a place where the Eurasia community features one important project a month that is having strategic impact for the Kingdom of God:
“I told God if my wife Sharon and I were ever had another chance to help children, we would,” Larry now recalls.
Within a few months God provided funds to purchase a small two-room facility where 16 children discovered the meaning of “home.” That was 26 years ago.
Since then, the faithful work of the Smiths and faithful gifts from a host of people, the home has expanded over the years. Today, 115 children are finding love, acceptance, and the chance to thrive at Home of Hope.
Would you consider giving to this important project?
As we mentioned earlier, it can be kind of hard for those of us who aren’t missionaries to imagine a parent literally handing over their child to us, because they were unable to care for him or her. But with a gift of only $65 a month, you can make sure that one child at Home of Hope has what they need to thrive.
Can’t commit to giving monthly? There are several other one-time expenses that your donation could provide for the Home of Hope.
