A Helping Hand!

This past January the girls and staff had the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and do something for others. First, they spent a morning cleaning up the trash in our village. Everyone grabbed a trash bag and gloves and started cleaning. The streets quickly looked a lot cleaner and in the process the girls learned about serving others.

During Christmas the girls and “mothers” went to a mountain village where some of the “mothers” live to help the people there prepare for a big Christmas party, to sing carols, and to hand out blankets to the poor people there. The blankets are a welcome gift in December as it is now cold season and the temperature drops by 25+ degrees Celsius from what it normally is. This means that if you don’t have a heater you are very happy with anything else that can keep you warm. The girls have seen that there are people who need help and they got a chance to offer a helping hand by handing out blankets.

The girls live at Baan Phak Phing because they themselves need help as well. That isn’t always easy for them. They would much rather be living with their parents if it was safe for them to be there. But even if you need help yourself you can still help others who are in need. This is the lesson that the “mothers” tried to teach the girls through these days of service. We hope that it will stick in the hearts of the girls and that throughout the rest of their lives they will be aware of how they may serve others.
