I do not wish to embarrass her and must therefore let her remain anonymous but the lady I mentioned at the end of the last post gave me her card as she was leaving. I was surprised to see its printed picture bore the words: Rehoboth Children's Homes Trust (with her own name on the back).
Going online I discovered that in 1981 she and her late husband founded this children's home in the Philippines because they witnessed the desperate needs of so many orphaned, abandoned and neglected children. With desire to give them the best of Christian nurture and education the work began with a local pastor and wife becoming the first house parents. In the thirty-six years since then it has grown so that currently 70 children are being cared for residentially and through their education programme. The trust is connected with Godmanchester Baptist Church as part of their wide mission concerns.
This is one of the wonderful truths about the Christian family - that you can find out almost by accident so many good works that flow from faith. I remember once reading a quote about the best part of Christian kindness is that it is only discovered by stealth!
