On Baruni Rubbish Dump

On Baruni Rubbish Dump, on the outskirts of Port Moresby, PNG, I found this gentlemen, who has lived all his life in space no bigger that an outside toilet. The shack has no windows,made from timber he found on the tip.

The Miracle of his story is despite his conditions he knows Jesus has not abandoned him. Even living in such filth.

He went on to say we too have not forgotten him at his great time of need. "Many times in recent years he said he had no food, and was physically dying of hunger, until our volunteers knocked on his door with delicious rice based meals.

I spoke to him at length through an interpreter.

When I mentioned we come in the name of Jesus to him with food, he opened his door (Please see the inscription on the inside of the door)

After he had eaten the food we provided he went into his room and bought out a picture which obviously means more to him than anything the world can offer. See first picture.

He is holding on to  the blessed hope being realised in the soon coming of our saviour.

Pictured is our Operation Food for Life volunteer Michael Kanawi holding the special  photo with our brother.

This is just one of many stories which inspire all of us as we provide material,emotional, support bringing dignity and hope, to the forgotten and disadvantaged to the "least of these"
