    In 2006, when a tsunami struck the coast of Thailand, an orphanage in Burma was washed away from a cyclone. The orphanage was home to approximately 50 children.  One young boy, age 12, helped all of the children escape the disaster by leading them up and away from the flooding waters.  Each one of the children survived, and the boy’s story made an impression on many of the folks that attend the People’s Church in Dalhart.  Members of the church embarked on a mission trip to see in what ways their congregation could help the children devastated by the loss of their only home.
