Jille, I know that sounds like a girls name, but it isn’t. Jille has been coming to our church for a long time now. I thought that Jille was the son of one of our faithful members because he is always at church. About a month ago, I realized that Jille wasn’t a child of our members but an orphan. If I understand the story right, Jille’s mother left him and his father. After his mother left, his father basically left him on the streets. He was left without a home and a family. He was taken in by an orphanage that is about a 1/2 mile from the church. When I realized this, I began to take more of an interest in him and show him some love.

He invited two other orphans on Christmas Eve and they both got saved. This month, he has brought two others that have trusted Jesus. He is 13 or 14. He has a great attitude and doesn’t miss anything we are doing. I have been to visit their home. I really want to show these boys that somebody does love them. I even gave Jille a job at church the other day. You might not think counting the attendance at church is something special, but don’t tell Jille, he was excited.
