Meet the children: Muphamuzi Baby Home

We learned that orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names.  They are easier to ignore before you see their faces.  It is easier to pretend they are not real before you hold them in your arms.  But once you do, everything changes.”  David Platt

Currently there are four precious little ones being cared for at the Muphamuzi Baby Home.  The goal of the home is to provide loving care to children who have been abandoned by their physical parents, but not abandoned or forgotten by their Father in Heaven.  “Muphamuzi” is the name given to the son of Josh and Marda Mack who was once abandoned, but now has a loving home.  When the Macks took him home to join their family they leaned that his name means “give me a home”.  The prayer is that each child that comes to the Baby Home will be given a home.  A home that will love them and point them to the Savior.  Picture below are the three baby girls:

There is also a little boy at the home.  He is 18 months old and is HIV+.  His name is    means “we have hope” in Zulu.  And it is true.  We do have hope because of what Christ has done for us on the cross and we know that because of this he also has hope!  Please pray for these precious little ones.  That their Father in Heaven would keep them in His care and place them in a Christ-filled family.

“God sets the lonely in families” Psalms 68:6
