Tima, an orphan himself and one of the original boys at Mel’s House, went to Kyrgyzstan two years ago to help orphan children. On a weekly basis, Tima visits with approximately 50 children, ages 5 through 15, to mentor and guide them, and to share God’s love. He told us that once he shared his testimony, these kids were open to learning more about God and to discussing what their future could bring. On January 3rd, Tima celebrated Christmas with these kids. With the help of Heart for Orphans, he was able to purchase gifts of food, candy and toys. On that day, he brought much joy to children who are alone and frightened. Thank you, Tima, for making such a difference in an orphan’s life.
