I'm sitting here heartbroken to be back with those children I fell in love with. Those children, who have seen things and experienced things that we may never comprehend. Those children, despite everything they've been through are happy! THEY ARE HAPPY! How can that be? How can they be happy? How can they praise God? Shouldn't they be mad at God for not giving them a better life? These are the questions I asked myself while I was there. But NO, they aren't mad. They love God and trust him completely. They don't have the everyday distractions we face, so they completely rely on Him. What if we lived so simply? I wish I could... I admire the orphans we saw. I admire the way they live by faith. I've been emailing with Alysse, a 17 year old orphan living at Noel Orphanage in Rwanda. She says that she is happy to have the opportunity to be protected by God's hands when I told her I would be praying for her everyday. Isn't that amazing! I'm also amazed by the people who work in the orphanages. The nannies who take care of the babies, the cooks, the directors. They all have incredible hearts for those children.
