The Picture That Still Bothers Me


The above picture of the little Dalit girl going through garbage has bothered me more than any other one I’ve ever used on my blog. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you’ll discover the background is probably her home. The bamboo posts most likely hold up a plastic or canvas cover, which shelters her family.

If this photo bothers me, what do you think it does to my heavenly Father?

Gospel For Asia’s Bridge of Hope ministry reaches children like this with the love of Christ. So far, more than 60,000 children have been helped and thousands of families have found faith in Christ as a result.

If you’re interested, it only takes $35 a month to give a child everything they need—school supplies, a daily meal, medical checkups and more. You can check it out here.

  1. Aub and I talked about this picture just now, how sad it is .. and yet she is smiling. Thank you, Mr. Larry, for keeping all those children in your prayers and helping us to help too. God bless you!
    p.s. we sent money for someone to get chickens for Christmas. 🙂

  2. Debbie,

    Thanks and God bless you for the chickens. One thing I’ve noticed about children is that when a camera shows up, a smile follows. That also breaks my heart…
