What an incredible turnout for our Bingo night! It’s so incredible for us to be a part of such beautiful work. Not only was it a super fun night, but also we were able to raise money in order to better the quality of life of so many children! Lots of people came, played, ate, won prizes, made new friendships, and most importantly made an impact in the lives of so many!

I want to take this time to thank every one who participated on the Bingo night, including all the volunteers who helped put it all together. I cannot express enough how amazing it was to see so many people gathered in one room with the desire to help those in need. The way everything came together was so amazing. There were so many people who donated prizes and sponsored this event. It couldn’t have happened without them and so we are extremely thankful! The best part of putting together an event like this is definitely the end result; just to think that with such a fun night we get to provide the basic necessities for our children from the Seeds of Hope home. They will be receiving things like medicine, clothes, school supplies, housing and many other basic needs.
Little Changes hopes to continue to fund this home and expand our project. Our hope and our vision are to be able to hire more staff in order to give individual attention to all the children from the home and also to grow the spiritual aspect of our project. These children all have the desire to be recognized, to be somebody. They want to make a difference. They have so much potential and we believe we can help them realize their dreams. This is their second chance and we want to set the best foundation possible to change the path they were headed and give them the tools and opportunities to become who God has designed them to be.

God has been doing amazing work at the Family Home in Cambodia! The wonderful women and local workers of the SHE Rescue Home organization have been showing the six girls there such love and emotional care, and we are excited to share some of their recent updates and praise reports:
The past few months brought both challenges and opportunities for the home. Several local festivals and holidays have kept the girls very busy with craft making, field trips, and family visits when possible. In October the home hosted a small self-defense class for the girls, which helped them to learn some important new skills in a fun environment. Weekly swim lessons have proven to be very popular with the girls as well, with many improving rapidly and enjoying races together. The water is not always welcome however, and recent flooding throughout the region has caused a few issues around the home (though steps are being made with local authorities to address this challenge).
Christmastime afforded the home some great opportunities to reach out to the families. The girls were able to make cards and Christmas gift bundles to give to their families with toys, clothes, and toiletries, which meant quite a lot to the girls and their families! Family situations are complicated among the girls. Some are having great interactions with their families and are progressing closer to safely reintegrating with them. Others are having difficulties due to family finances, unsafe living environments, or even families who may turn down their opportunity to reintegrate. This is a main prayer request for the girls, as a positive reintegration to a healthy family environment would be ideal for them.
All of the girls have their own personality and interests, from schoolwork to sports to crafts, and it’s amazing to see how God is using these activities to restore and encourage them. Let’s pray that God will continue to shower grace and love on these little ones through the gospel and opportunities for reparation and relationships!
