Hosanna Children

Jesus always says to let the children come to Him. "But when the chief priests and the teachers of the law saw the wonderful things He did and the children shouting in the temple area 'Hosanna to the Son of David,' they were indignant. 'Do you hear what these children are saying?' they asked Him. 'Yes,' replied Jesus, 'have you never read, From the lips of children and infants you have perfected praise?'" Matthew 21: 15-16

Kathy Langston initially came to Romania in the summer of 2000 for a three-week vacation to volunteer in the Oradea Children’s Hospital with abandoned babies. After one week of feeding, holding, loving and helping the babies, she felt in her heart that she had to move to Romania to help ease their suffering and moved to Oradea in the Fall of 2000.

Kathy initally volunteered in the hospital with the abandoned babies, but after nine months she learned the best way to help them was to get them out of the hospital and give them a loving and nuturing home. She took children into her home to give them loving care and find them permanent families. With a ban on international adoptions and the difficulty of finding national adoptive parents, Kathy has changed her mission to give abandoned children the love and care they so desperately need, in the hospital and in understaffed government-run group homes.

Even though these children are often brushed aside by society and are almost invisible on the world scale, they are precious in God's eyes...and somehow they know that.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
