In 2005, my husband and I went to live in Bali — an island which is part of the thousands of islands which make up the country of Indonesia and has the largest population of Muslims in the world — approximately 250 million. Bali is the only island which is predominately Hindu with a population of about four and a half million people.
After being missionaries for about forty years, we felt that God had called us to Bali to tell the precious Hindus about Jesus Christ. With the help of a young Indonesian couple, we started a church in the northern city of Singaraja. One day we visited a very poor mountain home. As we were leaving, the husband brought three beautiful little children to us and said, “Please take my children. I do not have money to provide food, clothing and schooling for them.” We knew that Singaraja was the center of Bali for foreign pedophiles who took advantage of the poverty. The people were so poor that they would sell their children into the sex trafficking market.
God placed a burden in our broken hearts for an orphanage. We could not save all the children, but perhaps we could rescue some of them from the wickedness of the sex trafficking.
We had a dream, but God had a plan. God led in a miraculous way and supplied the money for us to buy two acres of land and build the Faith Children's Home. We have been able at this writing to save forty eight precious children. We provide a beautiful home, food, clothing, schooling and heaps of love to children who never had any of these things. They now have a future on this earth and an opportunity to have a home in Heaven.
