Alissa’s Special Picnic …..

Alissa and children 2

After sending Anne some photos of my trips to Nepal which were taken when I visited all my  Children in The  Sunshine Children’s Home, Anne asked me to share with you  about one of our much cherished times, a special Picnic, which I’m very happy to be able to do.

Allisa and Children

In the middle of the summer months in Nepal it gets sweltering hot in Kathmandu, so as a treat we took the children and the two live in domestic Staff, who have become very fondly a part of this big beautiful family, on an outing to the Botanical Gardens in the south of the Kathmandu Valley.

Allisa and Carers

Although it isn’t the norm in Nepal to value and accept the workers, the children are being taught to love and respect everyone and these two caring dedicated young women who are now also learning English, were delighted to join us.

Thanks to all those who gave for their wonderful donations for the Children, including the clothes and toys, which I have been able to squeeze in with the luggage on my trips to be with them in Nepal, these made it possible for everyone to be dressed smartly for the special occasion and the girls took their dolls and the younger boys their favourite teddies.

Grannie Annies boys

Anne, affectionately known to the children as Grannie Annie, has brought such joy to their little hearts, Anne  helps to support the children as others kindly do too but just like a Grannie, gives then Treats too, this time it was to buy all the girls the loveliest dolls for their Birthdays.

Children

Once through the gates and what seemed a long way from the dust and pollution of Kathmandu, the green paradise was being pleasantly enjoyed by us all. Adults and older children carried along with them a portion of the carefully prepared picnic foods and drinks.

Before one could even make a plan, the ecstatic brood were eagerly off in all different directions, exploring new cobbled pathways, fresh little waterfalls and rock -pools, then up amongst the rose gardens.

Sunshine Picnic June 2014

There was a huge sigh of relief to be felt when they all came together to relax on a large grassed area and put on their party hats to enjoy our picnic lunch.

Boys will be Boys

Then in what seemed like a matter of no time, once again the children were excitedly hanging from trees and swinging from vines, running up and down slopes and in circles around where we sat.

As the happy group moved from place to place there seemed to be a whole new set of surroundings which entertained them until when as late as possible, we made our way back to the bus. As we were rocked up and down on the bumpy narrow roads descending through quaint mountain villages back to home in Kathmandu, completely exhausted, happily contented, smiling little faces fell asleep, whilst others sang about one of the best days of their young lives.

Blessings to you all – Alissa

But how very blessed they are to have you as their Aussie Mum, you are indeed a very special person Alissa and I give heartfelt thanks that we met and for the opportunity to share with you in giving these very needy Children a chance to enjoy their Childhood and for them to know that Jesus Loves them all greatly.

Sausage Orphanage

  I have something Special to share with you, I have been very  excited  for a few weeks, I was on the way to do my shopping
on my Mobility Scooter 145 Mobility Scooter which helps me manage as I’m unable to walk for very long without having painful feet and shopping is something I really enjoy as I meet lots of friendly, interesting people, most are very caring and help me when I can’t reach things and sometimes our conversations lead to my sharing how very much God Loves them and also His healings and many blessings in my life, it really is a special time that I look forward to each week.

I was just about to enter Woolworths, when  I could smell Sausages cooking, yum, yum, when your hungry they do indeed smell sooooo good, I had been wondering what to have for lunch as I hadn’t packed anything, so I ordered a Sausage sandwich and as I was waiting I started talking to the very  friendly Lady selling them, well I haven’t been the same since… This amazing woman, Alissa Hill has a heart so big she left me speechless and believe me that’s saying something unique, those who know the length of my comments have probably worked out I also enjoy talking and those I have talked to on the Phone in America, have no doubts about it, I am indeed an Evangelist but as Alissa shared why she was having a Sausage Sizzle all I could do was nod and smile, but I wanted to shout Praise The Lord! I felt so much Joy it was overflowing, I am so very touched by Alissa’s story, I just have to share it with all of you and ask for your help too.

 Alissa’s Children had grown up and being a qualified Counsellor, with a very caring heart as you will see, she wanted to Adopt a Child but was unable to because being a single Mum didn’t meet Queensland’s requirements for overseas Adoption, so because Alissa having always wanted to help those in need even as a child, underprivileged Children became her focus and is was what motivated her to decide to care for needy Children in Nepal.

 Nepal is one of the poorest Countries in the World with one of the highest rates of infant mortality and child trafficking. Up to 12000, girls a year are stolen and sent to brothels in India and abroad, many woman and children live miserable lives suffering sickness and severe malnutrition, they have no opportunity for a future and  their pagan gods offer no help but you are reading this because our God cares deeply, His heart is breaking as he witnesses the helplessness of His suffering Children…

 We can make a difference, we can bring health, Love, Joy, Hope and Peace where there is now none for many of these Children unless they are cared for by someone like Alissa or others who have a caring heart.

 Alissa and a few of the Children, Hmmmm
Someone wants to play with the Toys.
I will Post again with all the details of how Alissa started her Sausage Orphanage last year in November and her wonderful plans for it to increase and  become self-supporting and most important for the Children to have Schooling, which means they won’t be targeted for Child Trafficking. I will also post more pictures of the Children and those who Care for them. The Orphanage is called Sunshine Children’s Home Nepal,  which I’m sure will bring much Sunshine to many Children. 
Alissa has raised the money to start her Orphanage by Donations, her savings, hard work and boarding 3 Students. As there is no Government funding in Nepal,  Alissa comes back to Queensland every couple of months to raise money to keep it going, she does this by having many, many Sausage Sizzles and Garage Sales with donated goods, which are very popular in Queensland, Aussies love a bargain! but wonderfully they also donate and help support Alissa and the Children without receiving something in return, except of course Joy and thankfullness in knowing Children in need are being cared for .

It doesn’t matter where they live, Children love to play
and it’s so good when they can.
Alissa’s Orphanage is a recognised and registered Charity and you can support a Child personally and be in contact with them through letters and  Skype, a Computer was Donated recently to make this possible… how good is that! but I do realise that some of you may be finding it hard to manage financially yet still want to be able to help, so I thought of a way you could with the most important needs these Children have, like food, clothes and medicine etc. 
If all of us who Blog for Jesus could give even just $5.00 or more if your able to, we could raise enough to help Alissa meet these urgent costs and also give her more time in Nepal to be with her much Loved Children, she now has over 14 but more are expected daily.  Alisa would like to help many more Children so you can be sure I will be asking God to multiply what ever is given but of course our Loving Heavenly Father thought of this first, His work done in His way never lacks His Supply, He sends help…
And that’s us, The Body of Christ, His Children and He has blessed us so we are able to help others in need and we know it’s a Joy when we do, so we are blessed again in our giving.
If you would also share with others about Alissa and her Sausage Orphanage, it would be very much appreciated and help greatly to make her needs known, I’m sure this type of gossip would be called Godly.
Alissa’s Sunshine Children’s Home in Nepal also has a  website ( see below )  where you can donate using Pal and if wanted can leave a comment or you can talk to Alissa personally by phone, the number is provided.
 
Many Blessings to you all as you reach out to others in need,
Christian Love from us both Always  – Your Sister Anne.
