There are millions of orphans who need care around the globe. The first children's home in Sarawak was established in 1950 by Rev and Mrs. Pilley. And since then hundreds of children have been helped and educated with some even achieving great social status. Recently the Miri district also saw the establishmenht of a Miri Methodist Children's Home in Pujut. To date there are 12 needy children under the care of Mr and Mrs. Ling Ching Chuoi . Mr. Ling is a former student of Methdodist Sceondary school Sibu and a year my junior.
It is hoped that a new building will be soon consructed to realise the vision and mission of this Children's Home in Miri.
This van is used by Mr and Mrs. Ling to send the children to school and for tuition. On Sundays they go to church together in this van.

This is one of the two buildings located in Pujut 5 used as home to these 12 needy children.
Children who are taken in will have a wholesome upbringing and growth under a safe and secure environment with well equipped facilities and well trained carers.
It is indeed a great hope that all of them will become useful and God fearing citizens in our society.
The trail set blazed by the Methodists from the time of John Wesley in the UK and Rev and Mrs. Pilley in Sarawak is still strong and hopeful.
