Dell Murphy has passed on and left a fortune to his nephew. He wants his nephew to continue his work at the orphanage in Mexico, but there is one problem. Neal Woods is missing! If Amelia and Rick can’t find him soon, the fortune will be turned over to Dell’s brother and sister who intend to close down “Uncle Dell’s Orphanage.” If that happens, where will the children go?
“Mexico, land of the Mariachi bands!” When Amelia and Rick arrive in Mexico, they get to see some interesting sights. Here are a few things they did.
In my research, I discovered there are many homeless children roaming the streets of Mexico. A few churches have created orphanages but they are not the only ones helping out. There are older couples that have opened their homes to the homeless as well, creating a smaller orphanage. These people are trying to make a difference in the world by taking the children off the streets and giving them love.
I learned that many young people volunteer at these orphanages from all around the world. They not only help with the work, but they take care of the children. There are also work missions where someone can volunteer to help build and paint buildings for these orphanages. This is wonderful. What kind of a world would we be if we didn’t care about others?
