The children at the Anawim Home were so happy to receive new mattresses. They were made possible by one of our donors, Marjorie Forrester who recently visited the Anawim Home, through the HFWA Anawim Operating Supplies Project.
The mattresses were much needed at the Anawim Home. The previous mattresses were old and thin. Now finally the children can sleep comfortably. When they say their prayers at night,"now I lay me down to sleep," the Lord hears the prayers of the Anawim children. Somehow God continually works through the kindness of people who give donations and their time to the Anawim Home. This helps Sr. Oresoa keep her dream alive to help the poorest of the poor.
The children at the Anawim Home are mostly orphans that Sr. Oresoa has found abandoned in the streets. Some young mothers and their children who have nowhere else to go also stay there. Sr. Oresoa and the other Sisters feed, clothe, and educate the children. The children at the Anawim Home are joyful children and thankful for what they have. The say a daily prayer for their benefactors.

LET ME GIVE
I do not know how long I will live,
but while I live, Lord, let me give
some comfort to someone in need
by my smile, a good deed or kind word
and let me do whatever I can to ease
things for my neighbor. I want
nothing but to do my part to lift a
tired or weary heart to change people,
frowns to smiles than I will not have
lived in vain. And I will not care,
how long I will live if only I can
give and give-and-give.
