Jesus Loves the Little Children

At the House of Light (Casa de Luz) Orphanage in the Dominican Republic, founders Tempura (shown here) and Lucas Perez have made caring for special needs children and young adults their life’s calling. The vulnerable kids they serve are nurtured through medical care and therapy, are provided with healthy meals, and take part in regular Bible studies.

“We teach the children the Word of God through our Bible studies,” Lucas told Cross International. “We also do praise and worship together every day.”
