to this only two years later;The awful, exciting, inspirational thing about these two is that they are not the exception at the Village, they are the norm. Children like this come to Por Los Niños just like Jose and Andy did all the time. But the exciting thing is, they never stay that way. It's an awe inspiring thing to hear the story of a child when they came to the Village and then see them present day. It truly is night and day. It's enough to make anyone's heart melt. Por Los Niños is not just a place for children to live. It's a chance to grow with God in a setting that will change their lives and with a family that loves them.
I can't help but relate this to how my life changed when I started following God. These children certainly did not asked for the life they were born into. Just like we didn't ask to be born into a life of sin. But we were. When God found us and we found Him, our lives were changed. When the children were brought to Por Los Niños, their lives were changed. Both of our lives have been refreshed. It's my prayer that someday, when the children get older, their lives will be refreshed again when they give it to God.
"'Come now let us reason together,'
says the Lord.
'Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow.'"
