Slowly Crawling, the Little Snail Still Enjoys the Taste of Growing Up

“I got my first salary and I want to share it with grandma! ”

16-year-old Champion is suspected of having marginal intelligence, is weak in understanding and learning things. His parents got divorced and Champion is raised by grandma. Thinking to give Champion a better environment to grow up, Champion’s grandma sought the help from the Mustard Seed Mission’s i-ro i-ro Children's Home service, an innovative residential childcare system in the community.

The pastor’s wife, as a main caregiver in i-ro i-ro Children's Home, welcomed Champion and treated like her own child. From educating daily life routine like teeth brushing, bathing, and tidying up clothes, the pastor’s wife even helped Champion to find a job in a motorcycle shop. When the teen got his first salary, he couldn’t wait to share the joy with his family!

Lillian R. Dickson's Quotes

 I looked at them with more than love, with reverence, for they had borne persecution and suffering victoriously

“ I looked at them with more than love, with reverence, for they had borne persecution and suffering victoriously...”

As we left this place the brave little group of first believers gathered to see us off. I looked at them with more than love, with reverence, for they had borne persecution and suffering victoriously in that their faith had not been lost but strengthened and their spirit toward their enemies not embittered but filled with sweet understanding. I remembered another mountain man who had been beaten. He would not accuse the man responsible, but some friend did, and finally he was brought before the judge. The judge said, “We know that this is the man who wronged you. Have you any accusation to lay against him?” The mountain man, who was a Christian, said, “No. I have no charge against him. He is not a Christian and so he does not understand things as we do. Even so, I still would lay no charge against him. We Christians forgive our enemies.”

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, You will love your neighbor as yourself.

Mark 12:30-31
