We met these two boys for the first time when they were just 3 weeks old in a remote village in a Southeast Asian country. Right after birth the mother was unable to take care of them and in the village having twins was seen as a curse.

Both boys were malnourished to the point of starvation and while we treated an infected wound at one of the boys umbilical area, we had to resuscitate him. We decided to take the boys and the parents to the children’s hospital in the capital which was 14 h away by boat, 4 WD and minivan. Both boys survived and the parents gave their heart to the Lord. They are now active members of the local tribal church in their village. One of our students who was involved in the process found her calling to become a missionary midwife through this experience.
