I WAS ABLE TO KEEP THAT A SECRET FROM THEM. AND I WAS NOT REAL HONEST WHEN I DID IT. I TOLD YOUR FATHER AND I SAID I LIED EVERYWHERE, AND HE SAYS THE PROBLEM IS YOU ARE VERY GOOD AT IT. AND WE WERE DOING LIVE TV AND YOU KNOW THAT WE HAD 25 GUESTS, SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS AND RELATIVES ON THE PROGRAM >> AND I CAN REMEMBER I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL AND BEFORE THE STUDIOS WERE BUILT WE WOULD BE FILMING IN OUR HOME, I WOULD COME HOME HOME– I WOULD BE COMING HOME FROM SCHOOL AND I DID REALLY GROW UP AROUND ALL OF THIS, AND I DID IT, AND I STOOD IN THE CONTROL ROOM AND THIS IS SO FAMILIAR TO ME >> ARTHELENE: THIS IS SUCH A PRIVILEGE TO BE AROUND THIS GIRL AND WE WANT TO SPEAK ABOUT A MINISTRY, YOU KNOW THIS HAS MY HEART AND I AM NOT KIDDING YOU YOU KNOW, THIS MY GUEST, HER MOTHER MOLLY AND SHE BEGAN AN ORPHANAGE IN NEPAL, AND WHAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF THAT? AND WAS THAT THERE? >>AND SHE TOOK IT OVER BUT WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? SHE UNDERSTOOD, AND ABOUT 1990 OR SO, THE LORD LAID UPON HER HEART THAT SHE WOULD BEGIN AN ORPHANAGE TO RESCUE CHILDREN FROM THE SEX TRADE. AND THIS IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT CONNOTATION NOWADAYS, AND WE DID NOT KNOW ABOUT IT BACK THEN. AND SHE WOULD PRAY ABOUT IT, SHE DID NOT KNOW WHERE ARE HOW THAT WOULD BE, AND THE CHURCH OF GOD THE OVERSEER IN ASIA, CONTACTED HER AND ASKED HER, AND WE HAVE THE KIDS, THAT NEED A HOME AND THEY ARE ON THE STREETS, AND WILL YOU DO SOMETHING? AND SHE SAYS–YES. LET US DO SOMETHING AND THAT WAS 2002. IN 2003, AND THEY HAD GATHERED THE KIDS TOGETHER, WE WENT OVER THERE, TOGETHER, AND I WAS ON THE FIRST TRIP OVER THERE. I SAW THE KIDS AND I GOT TO KNOW THE MANAGER, AND HE HAS BEEN THE MANAGER FOR THE ENTIRE TIME >> ARTHELENE: DID YOU HAVE TO GET A BUILDING, AND GO THROUGH ALL KINDS OF MAYBE YOU KNOW, AND LEGAL THINGS, IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY? >> A LITTLE BIT LATER AND WE BEGAN TO THE HOME, THAT WOULD BE UNDER THE CHURCH OF GOD, AND ALL OF THOSE LOGISTICS AND I AM NOT SURE, A FEW YEARS LATER AND WE REGISTERED AS A STATE ORPHANAGE >> LET ME SHOW THE PEOPLE A LITTLE BIT OF THIS, AND WE HAVE GOT SOME PICTURES THAT WOULD BE WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS, THIS IS A MINISTRY THAT BRIAN AND YOLANDA, HAVE TAKEN OVER AND THIS IS FROM THE BEGINNING, AND MOLLY HAS GONE TO HEAVEN, I KNOW, AND I KNOW HOW VERY PLEASED SHE WOULD BE THAT THIS CONTINUES AND PLEASE TAKE A LOOK >> MUSIC >> LOCATED BETWEEN INDIA AND CHINA, THE HOME ABOUT EVEREST, IT WOULD BE A BEAUTIFUL SCENERY THAT DRAWS 800,000 TOURISTS EVERY YEAR. BUT IT IS PEOPLE ARE STRICKEN BY VAST POVERTY. THIS IS WHERE THE CHRISTIAN TELEVISION NETWORK COMES IN, CTN SAW THE NEED AND WE BEGAN TO DO SOMETHING. THAT IS WHY THEY STARTED THE CHILDREN’S HOME. ITS PURPOSE WAS TO BRING SHELTER, LOVE AND EDUCATION AND RESOURCES TO THE ORPHANED CHILDREN. THEN IN APRIL 2015, NEPAL WAS HIT BY A MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE >> 1800 PEOPLE WERE KILLED, AND TENS OF THOUSANDS ARE HOMELESS AND MANY ARE NOT ACCOUNTED FOR TONIGHT AFTER THE WORST DISASTER THAT THEY HAVE SEEN HIM ONE CENTURY >> AND WITH YOUR HELP, CTN WAS ABLE TO PROVIDE ALL OF THE ESSENTIALS, AND THE HOME DID RECEIVE FOOD, TENTS, WATER, AND OTHER

SUPPLIES. THE CHILDREN’S HOME HAS CONTINUED TO EQUIP AND EMPOWER AND BRING CHANGE TO THE COMMUNITY >> MUSIC >> MUSIC >> [ SINGING IN NATIVE-LANGUAGE] >>MUSIC >> AND MY NAME IS FREDDIE, AND I LIVE AND I CAME TO THE ORPHANAGE IN APRIL 2002, MY MOTHER, AND SHE WAS SEPARATED FROM MY FATHER, WHEN I WAS SMALL, THEN I WAS WITH MY MOTHER THEN SHE PASSED AWAY, AND WHEN I WAS SEVEN YEARS OLD, AND I BEGAN TO LEAVE, AND THEN I WENT TO BE WITH MY MOTHER’S SISTER AND THIS WAS NOT GOOD, AND YOU KNOW, IT WAS A CRITICAL SITUATION AND I WAS RUNNING FROM THE HOME, AND I WAS RUNNING AWAY TWO TIMES ALREADY, AND I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO. AND I WAS STRUGGLING WITH THE PEOPLE AND WITH THE COMMITTEES AND WITH THE SCHOOLS, STILL, AND WHEN MY UNCLE GOT TO KNOW THAT I WAS THERE AND THEN HE GOT ME INTO THIS HOME, AND THEN HE KNEW WE WOULD BEGINNING HERE AND HE BROUGHT ME TO THE ORPHANAGE. I STARTED TO KNOW CHRIST, AND I DECIDED TO KNOW GOD, THEN I DECIDED TO KNOW THE FAMILY, LOVED ONES, AND I BEGAN TO REALIZE, HOW LIFE IS AT A BLESSING THAT GOD HAS PUT INTO MY LIFE SO I WORK IN THIS AREA NOW. AND I WORK WITH THE STAFF. AND I CAN DO AND I HOPE, AND I WORK WITH THE ORPHANAGE AND I AM HELPING HERE >> [ HORN BLOWING IN THE BACKGROUND] >> AND WITH MY FAMILIES, I WORK IN THE GUEST HOUSE AND I CARE FOR THAT. AND WHATEVER I DO, AND I PAY FOR MY COLLEGE AND THIS IS ALMOST LIKE I AM GOING TO BE IN A CAREER, AND I WILL BE ORDAINED YES. AND I WERE CAN I EARN SOME MONEY FOR MY COLLEGE. AND THIS PROGRAM IS LOVE, IT IS A FAMILY, IT IS NOT JUST AN ORPHANAGE BUT THIS IS A FAMILY, AND THIS IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT, AND WE ARE A PART. AND WE SHOULD BE A PART OF IT. AND THIS IS WHAT I FEEL IN MY HEART. AND I WAS MISSING SOMETHING, AND THROUGH THE GRACE OF GOD I AM STILL HERE AND I FEEL LIKE, THIS IS MY FAMILY >> ARTHELENE: AND YOU KNOW THAT YOUNG MAN, HE SPEAK SUCH GOOD ENGLISH, AND THEY SAY, AND THEY GO TO ENGLISH-SPEAKING SCHOOL THERE. AND THIS IS ONE THING I HAMMER ON THIS PROGRAM. AND GET THEM SAVED AND GET THEM TO JESUS AND GIVE THEM AN EDUCATION AND THE WORLD CHANGERS, IF I HAD A TON OF MONEY, IT WOULD GO TO THAT TYPE OF EDUCATION TO THE CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS HERE, AND THAT WOULD BE SO IMPORTANT >> AND YES WE DO AND WE SEND THEM TO A PRIVATE SCHOOL AND THERE IS NO STATE EDUCATION IN THE COUNTRY OF NEPAL, YOU WILL PAY FOR YOUR SCHOOLING AND YOU DO NOT GET EDUCATED >> ARTHELENE: AND THERE HAS GOT TO BE SO MUCH HELP >> AND WE MAKE SURE THAT THEY GO TO A SCHOOL AND THEY GO TO WHEN ENGLISH-SPEAKING SCHOOL, AND WE GIVE THEM A COLLEGE EDUCATION WE GIVE THEM A TRADE. AND MAYBE THEY DO NOT FEEL LIKE THEY SHOULD GO TO COLLEGE AND WE GIVE THEM A TRADE, AND THIS IS WHERE THE SEX TRAFFICKING, THE SEX TRAFFICKING COMES IN, THEY DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING, AND THEY ARE TRAFFICKED, AND THAT IS VERY HEAVY IN NEPAL >> ARTHELENE: NOW LET ME SAY TO THE VIEWERS, WE CAN ALWAYS, WE CAN USE THE OFFERINGS AND BIG ONES, HOWEVER AND IF THE LORD IS DEALING WITH YOU, YOU CAN SEND IN A CHECK TO HOMEKEEPERS, AND YOU CAN SAY THE ORPHANAGE THAT WE CAN MAKE SURE THIS IS WHERE IT GOES THESE PEOPLE WOULD BE SO HANDS ON, TO BE SO VERY FAR AWAY, AND THE OTHER WONDERFUL THING, AND I DO NOT THINK EVERYBODY WOULD NEED A COLLEGE AND WE TRY TO GIVE THEM A TRADE, BUT YOU ARE SEEING THROUGH THE COLLEGE >> YES, THIS WOULD BE SO IMPORTANT, AND THEY DO NOT HAVE A FAMILY AND WE ARE THE FAMILY, AND WE TRY TO HELP THEM AND WE MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE DOING WHAT THEY WERE CALLED TO DO >> ARTHELENE: NOW AND WHERE WOULD THEY GO AND WHERE DO THEY COME FROM? AND WHEN DID YOU GET THEM? >> WE DO NOT TAKE ANYBODY YOUNGER THAN FOUR AND THAT WOULD BE ANOTHER BALLGAME, SO MANY TIMES, THE CHURCHES, THE LOCAL CHURCHES, THEY BRING US A CHILD AND THEY BRING OUR ATTENTION TO A CHILD. SOMETIMES THE STATE HAS BROUGHT THEM TO US. IT CAN DEPEND AND IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT REASONS FOR THIS. AND SOMETIMES, AND THEY HAVE A PARENT, AND THAT PARENT MIGHT BE IN A MENTAL HOSPITAL, AND YOU KNOW, AND THAT WOULD BE TOO SICK TO CARE FOR THEM BUT FOR THE MOST PART ALL OF THEM THEY HAVE A GREAT NEED AND SOMETIMES, ONE OF THE PARENTS RUNS OFF AND

THE OTHER ONE DIES ALL OF THE STORIES ARE DIFFERENT >> ARTHELENE: AND SO, AND I AM SURE, AND DO THEY HAVE A CHURCH LIFE? AND I AM SURE THEY HAVE BIBLE TRAINING >> YES, AND I WANT THE GIVE THE PEOPLE THE STATISTICS AND THERE ARE 29 MILLION PEOPLE IN NEPAL, AND THERE ARE 400,000 CHRISTIANS. AND THAT IS NOT A LOT, THERE ARE 29 MILLION PEOPLE THERE. AND THERE ARE CHURCHES AND THAT WOULD BE A HINDU COUNTRY, AND CHRISTIANITY IS NOT WIDESPREAD. YOU CANNOT TALK ABOUT IT SUPER SAFELY. AND THERE ARE SOME AMAZING CHURCHES OF THE KIDS GO TO CHURCH, AND A LOT OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE, AND THEY WILL WORSHIP AND TEACH SUNDAY SCHOOL SO THEY ARE VERY INVOLVED IN THE CHURCH >> ARTHELENE: AND DID THEY HAVE, AND DID THEY HAVE THE HORRIBLE EARTHQUAKE? >> AND THAT WAS MAY 2015. IT WAS LIKE A 7.9 ON THE RICHTER SCALE, AND THE BOYS HOME, AND THEY HAD CRACKS IN THE FOUNDATION THAT WAS NOT TOO BAD, AND THE OWNER, HE DID LOSE HIS HOME, AND HE HAS SAID, AND WE HAD TO GET OUT, AND SO THAT HE WOULD HAVE A PLACE TO LIVE AND THIS WOULD BE A VERY INTERESTING THING TO SAY YOU ARE ORPHANS AND YOU CANNOT STAY IN MY BUILDING BECAUSE I HAVE NO PLACE ELSE TO GO. GOD PROVIDES, WE HAVE A HOME. AND WE HAVE TO PURCHASE TENTS, SLEEPING BAGS, AND THERE WERE OVER 400 AFTERSHOCKS, . AND THEY HAD TO SLEEP OUTSIDE FOR ABOUT THREE MONTHS JUST FOR THE SAFETY REASONS >> ARTHELENE: AND WE JUST HAVE, WE HAVE A MINUTE OR SO LEFT, AND I REALLY WANT TO EMPHASIZE, AND THAT YOU CAN HELP THIS WONDERFUL MINISTRY OUT, AND I DO NOT WANT TO COMPLICATE ANYTHING AND YOU CAN MAKE YOUR CHECK OUT TO HOMEKEEPERS, AND YOU CAN SAY THAT YOU WANT TO GIVE THIS FOR THE ORPHANAGE IN NEPAL. I BELIEVE THAT WITH ALL MY HEART, THESE ARE WORLD CHANGERS AND THEY ARE RAISING UP THESE KIDS, AND THESE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND THAT PART OF THE WORLD. AND I HAVE KNOWN THESE PEOPLE I HAVE KNOWN HER FOR HER LIFE AND I KNOW HER HEART AND I KNOW THIS IS SO PURE FOR THE MINISTRY, I HAVE NO DOUBT, I AM SPEAKING TO PEOPLE NOW THAT COULD SEND IN A VERY GENEROUS OFFERING AND THIS WOULD GO THROUGH THE TELEVISION NETWORK AND THIS WOULD BE TAX DEDUCTIBLE, IT GOES WHERE YOU WANTED TO GO AND YOU HAVE NO SALARY >> I HAVE NO SALARY FOR THE ORPHANAGE AND I DO NOT WANT IT >> ARTHELENE: NOT AT ALL, AND I AM SO THRILLED AND I AM PLEASED, THAT YOU ARE CONTINUING YOU WITH YOUR MOTHER’S WORK. I KNOW THAT SHE WOULD BE–SHE WOULD BE, YOU KNOW WITHOUT YOU, WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT WOULD BE HELD OUT FOR THESE KIDS AND WE THINK THAT WE ARE OUT OF TIME, REMEMBER TO JOIN ME AGAIN, THERE IS NO HIGHER CALLING THAN THAT OF THE HOME KEEPER.
