Scott/Wayne EBC Team: Flawless

This morning started with mass at 6 am. We had the awesome opportunity to experience the local community’s service. After, we went to The Home for the Sick and Dying Babies. We arrived during visiting hours, and we tended to the babies whose parents were not there. We held the babies, changed their diapers, fed them and prayed for each of them. Our last stop for the day was at “Dio’s” special needs orphanage. This experience is difficult to put into words, however the lyrics from the song, “Flawless” by Mercy Me suits the video and our experience.  In the video you will see one of the older children sitting next to Eileen. He was watching everyone and chose to stay next to Eileen and not join the conga-line.  When she looked down, Eileen noticed he wrote in chalk on the bench next to them, “We Happy” and he pointed to the group dancing.

These children are innocent. They didn’t choose to be born into poverty. They didn’t choose to be born with a special need. They don’t deserve to be cast out as a burden to society. These children are beautiful. They were created in the image of Jesus.


Come on get in line right behind me
You along with everybody
Thinking there's worth in what you do
Then like a hero who takes the stage when
We're on the edge of our seats saying it's too late
Well let me introduce you to amazing grace.

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless.

No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless.
