In the beginning (of Orphan Outreach), was Amy Seale.
A powerful message from Mike Douris, Founder and President of Orphan Outreach:
It was the third day of our visit to the Ravine School in Chimaltenango, and the air outside still hung heavy with the ashen remnants of Fuego’s volcanic fury just days earlier. The dust mixed with the smoke from fires burning just down the road – fires that were a constant reminder of the heritage of the students who now carefully listened to their teachers and dreamt of brighter days.
In the '90s, in a Guatemalan village riddled with gang violence, death, and trash, the soft, delicate face of a toddler named Gersi met the hard wrath of a cruel world.
The sound of singing is the first thing that greets Orphan Outreach mission team members walking the rutted orange clay roads toward Madeleine School in Bungoma, Kenya. As they round the bend, the team will be met by smiles, hugs, and dancing as they join the parade of students, women, and school leaders celebrating their arrival. For Jim Clawson and Carmen Scroggin, the greeting has become their special “welcome home” to the small rural village that now holds their hearts so tightly. The husband and wife from Addison, Texas, have done more than visit this place - they’ve adopted it, and are sharing it with their world.
Day 3- First day to visit Jubilee School: What I did not see today was luxury cars, manicured lawns or nice houses. What I did not see today was an orderly drop off line, perfectly clean and pressed uniforms, or a beautiful campus. No frantic stay at home moms or professional dads.
