Doud responds, “That doesn’t sound too bad. I think we will learn what works and what doesn’t as time goes on but I hope we hear from mom soon. Let’s pray for her right now.”
“Okay,” Ika breaks in, “why don’t you pray Doud.”
“Dear Jesus, I know you love my mom as she said you love us also. She is far away and we do not know how she is. We ask you to put your arms around her and give her a hug. Keep her safe from harm and hope you help her send a message back to us so we know how she is doing. In the name of Jesus, Amen” Doud prayed.
“Thank you Doud,” as she goes to him and gives him a hug. Then Jon runs over and they hug each other.
During the beginning of January (2010) an aunt in Jakarta finally gets in touch with them. It was hard for the kids had no cell or home phone. She kept asking people that she knew in Medan and the surrounding area that may have known the mother. She finally found one and she finally was able to let Ika know to call her. She gave her regrets for the situation that they were in and could only help financially a little. Their aunt wanted to make sure they finished going to school until they were 18. She would send them money and it was for the transportation to go to school as they had to take a bus for $1.00 each, per day. They had to promise not to spend it on food or anything else. She will also send enough to cover the cost for books and work books.
This was very comforting to the three of them. They still had to seek out strangers to beg for their food money. Two months after their mother had disappeared they collectively were able to raise 50,000 rupiah a week. They needed to obtain 1,000.000 per month to exist.
We found out about these three children from a neighbor to the children. They are now in the care of Cikal Hope for Children Foundation. Other children need your help. We can talk about numbers such as in Indonesia there are close or more than 2 million street children and in India maybe 3 to 5 million. We want to help one child at a time and that is by YOU becoming a monthly support person to help one or more children. YOU contact us, we respond and you begin your extended family.
No other charity will have the “EXTENDED FAMILY” support that you will have. Most people that support a child never know if the child they are sending support for is actually a child or their child of choice. How are we different?
We will have email delivery to and from each other.
Then we have internet communication and will improve some of them.
This is free and you will have the capability of seeing the child respond to you, and you by them, through a translator and you will keep up to date with their life situations, whatever that will be.
We will have internet communication on some of the different messenger programs through MSN and Yahoo. Both of these also have video chat which a web cam and voice connection.
We will be having Skype voice/video/typed chat very shortly. This can be done from any computer or lap top computer that has those capabilities.
