Liberty Christian parent Tammy Lane viewed a documentary several years ago about the disease of leprosy in India. She was so touched by the program that she decided to travel to India and do something about it.

“We visited orphanages, disabled children’s homes, and slums and leper colonies to see how we could help these precious people,” Lane said.

“We had the privilege of feeding the hungry, bringing medical care to the sick, and building a home for the orphans.”

Through this experience, Lane’s production company began a project called “Mission: Love Exchange.” That is where Liberty’s 7th and 8th grade girls’ Spirit Team came into the picture. The Spirit Team is a cheer squad at Liberty for Middle School girls that has no tryouts.

In living out James 1:27 “to look after orphans and widows in their distress,” Spirit Team girls were each introduced through an information packet to a widow or orphan from India. These Spirit Team girls had the privilege of collecting much-needed gifts and supplies to send to their new friends.

A video was made of their collecting these important items, and when Lane personally delivered the boxes in India, a video was made of children and mothers receiving and opening their gifts.

“Both the Spirit Team girls and their new friends from India have committed to pray for each other for the next year,” Lane said.
