|"See what great love the Father has given us in naming us the children of God". (1 John 3:1) How then can we be recipients of such great love, and not be compelled to share that love with others in our world, in particular, those who have been abandoned by their earthly parents and are in desperate need to feel the loving arms of God encircling them.
Hundreds of thousands of children the world over are mal-nourished, unsheltered and uneducated, placing them at risk for disease, exploitation and a very short life. Most of all they will probably never hear about how God gave His only Son to give them a new life in this world, and a safe and secure eternity with Him. Christ commanded His disciples to communicate to all the world, and reach all humanity with this vital message. At the fringes of humanity are the children, isolated by their lack of resources and held there by their helplessness, only accessible by those willing to initiate the search, effect the rescue and provide for their stable future.
The Reason for the Children's Home
After 20 years of missionary service in Peru, God answered the prayers of Tom & Carol Clark, giving them the opportunity to open an orphanage to meet the needs of abandoned children in northern Peru.
Environment. Shelter and protection answer the most immediate needs an abandoned child faces which comes from their physical environment. Morning Star provides a warm bed in a safe home, clothing and cleanliness. Medical evaluation and treatment for any existing conditions or diseases and healthy nourishment.
Emotional stability. Next are the emotional needs. Arriving out of a variety of living conditions, most have emotional issues to overcome. MS provides a loving family atmosphere into which they transition to achieve emotional stability.
Education. MS is committed to insuring that the children in its care will receive a quality Christian and academic education.
Evangelism. Within this caring and safe environment, these children will, in a very clear and present way, be introduced to the spiritual message of God's love for them, and be given the opportunity to establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, grow in their faith and knowledge of Him, and commit to a life of service for His glory.
Our Lord Jesus Christ said; "Let the little children come to me, for of such is the kingdom of God". Childhood is the best time to acknowledge God's existence and encounter His love. Morning Star Orphanage exists to provide that option to those young children, discarded by their natural families and society, and for whom God sacrificed His own child.
