To think that the "oppressed have no comforter" in their time of need was so overwhelming, I wanted to do something to bring the message of Jesus's love to them. It is my hope that these precious children will learn to sing "Jesus Loves Me This I Know." Perhaps some day when their tears soak their pillow, they can rock themselves to sleep at night with these words in their heart. The least we can do as followers of Christ is introduce them to the Comforter.
