This is touching. I don't know what else to say.

I feel so ill equipped at the right words to say but I want to say something. I want to come there and wrap my arms around them and tell them its going to be okay.

I want to tell them about Jesus. I want to bring them something that will make them smile. How do I do these things?

It's not only sad to look at them but theres a lot of lesson and message too that lust is sinful and deadly.

I'm glad to see a wordless Wednesday with some powerful ideas behind the pictures. Its inspiring to see how they smile and have joy despite the circumstances. I like the one with the shoes and the young boy lying on the mat.

These pictures speak a thousand words... my heart goes out to them and to countless and faceless others who are victims of this dreadful disease. I think there is hope for them, you see it in their eyes, thanks to the work you are doing there.

My heart breaks to see these faces and to hear their stories. Praise God for the many people who are able to help these orphans.

Jesus, Minister in a special way to these who we can see with our eyes in these pictures, and those we can't. I do ask you to heal their bodies, their families, their broken hearts. I ask that you open their understanding and draw them close to you. Save them. bring them to health, peace, hope, joy, and strength in You... Amen.
