I know the way out !

"This guy's walking down the street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can't get out. "A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, 'Hey you. Can you help me out?' The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole and moves on. "Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, 'Father, I'm down in this hole can you help me out?' The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on "Then a friend walks by, 'Hey, Joe, it's me can you help me out?' And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, 'Are you stupid? Now we're both down here.' The friend says, 'Yeah, but I've been down here before and I know the way out.'"

When we first met Victor , he was a cute little kid with no front teeth.  He was in the same orphanage as Nick, and was like his little brother .. Over time the kids grew, but Victor never seemed to.  When the orphanage was closed and the kids were left in turmoil,  We started helping Victors grandmother so that she would be able to care for him on her pension.

We started covering three basic needs, Schooling and school supplies, health and medical needs and clothing .  With out these burdens Victor and his grandmother have been able to make ends meet.  

Well Victor has grown up a lot now , and we continue to support his family.  A few days ago he contacted me to say that he has again grown out of some of his clothes and he needs new pants and a  spring coat.  He went on to say that he has gathered up all his clothes that no longer fit and would like to donate them to one of the orphanages.  We had him give Tanya a call and together they were able to be a great blessing to many more kids ... 
Kids that Victor can relate to because he has been there , and he knows the way out !
