One day the police knocked on the Heritage House door and asked us if we would come and check on some children. Their mother was a severe diabetic, but was unable to get insulin. She had a stroke and was dying in the hospital. After verifying that their father had abandoned them with the village leader, we took the children into Heritage House. Our staff visited their mother daily for weeks caring for her physical needs as she lay dying in the clinic, but she did not receive Jesus as her Lord before her death.
Makara and Ro have been a real blessing for our house. They immediately bonded with the dorm mothers and other children. Makara was only three years old when they moved into the house. They embraced the challenge though and did an incredible job. Today he is a healthy and happy little boy.
Because of his mother’s illness, Makara had basically raised himself. He was not used to boundaries or with schedule. After an initial adjustment period, he has adjusted to the rules of Heritage House and is doing great. He is always laughing and playing. He loves to tease the other children and get them to chase him. He is a very bright young man.
