As we draw to a close on 2019, we cannot help but reflect and give God all the praise and glory for what he has gifted Little Lambs this year! We started the year with our work teams prepping the site and laying the underground infrastructure for the lower campus. They also started construction on a security wall with a new front entrance to provide protection for our children and staff. Throughout the summer, our teams worked hard to pour the concrete floor, and lay block for the first story interior and exterior walls for our first home! Our Florida team conducted a medical/dental clinic where they ministered to nearly 150 people. They also hosted a sports camp/soccer tournament which was a huge success. Our last team of the year created a special VBS program for our little lambs and the local community. They taught about God’s great redeeming love for them through songs, stories, and crafts. The good news of Jesus was able to be spread beyond the walls of the orphanage thanks to all of our teams and their community outreach efforts.
LLI has been a safe haven for 2.5 years now and has been able to serve nearly 28 children. Currently, we are over capacity with 13 children in our care ages ranging from 5 months to 13 years old. Each child that has been brought to us has suffered some sort of trauma, neglect, and/or abuse. However, over this year God has allowed us to see hope in the midst of all the sadness. We have been the place of refuge for a teen mother and her infant son, a place of reuniting siblings, a place of watching a child experience joy as they celebrated their birthday for the first time. These stories are just a few of what happens here at Little Lambs.
This ministry is made possible because of YOU our supporters and we want to say, Thank you! Thank you for generously supporting us through prayer, investing your time in volunteering, and through financial support. We look forward to a new year and are excited to see what God will do!
