Bina Kasih Orphanage

Located just off the coast of Northern Sumatra Indonesia is the small island of Nias. While living there, Ibu Mastina, the founder and proprietor of the orphanage, noticed some of the children in her village were unable to attend school because they could not afford it. Feeling called to help these children, she sold her five cows and half of her family's coconut farm to bring 20 children ranging from 6 to 16 years old to Medan. She rented a small home and struggled to support the children with the proceeds of the remaining half of her coconut farm.

The home they rented was on the same street as the local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. After seeing the missionaries pass a few times, they asked if they could attend church there. They began attending meetings and many have since become baptized as members of The Church.
