Nyi Nyi often watched and even helped his mom prepare food to sell. But the 9-year-old was not allowed to ask for any of it to eat.   

“I couldn’t eat the food. It was going to be sold to other people,” Nyi Nyi told CBN. “I could only imagine that it tasted good.”

At the end of 17-hour workdays both cooking and selling, Htar Lay, who is a widow, earned only enough to give Nyi Nyi and his brother a little rice with a dab of fish sauce.   

Then the landlord increased their rent on a broken-down shack where they lived, and they were forced to move out.

“There was no one who could give me a little help,” said Htar Lay with tear-filled eyes. “I considered moving to another country to work. But I couldn’t leave my children behind.”

So CBN’s Orphan’s Promise, working through a local pastor, provided some help. First, we found them a new place to live. Then we set up a shop for Htar Lay to sell more prepared food. Business has been booming, so they expanded and added a bicycle rental business as well. Their income has increased more than 400% and they no longer go hungry.   

“Now, I don’t need to imagine eating meat anymore,” said Nyi Nyi with a big smile! “I always feel full and happy!”

Htar Lay and her family, who were Buddhists, also learned about Jesus and prayed to become Christians. 

“Thank you to everyone who helped our family!” said a grateful Nyi Nyi.
