We asked kids, "What is love?" Their answers will melt your heart. At Samaritan's Purse we see love in many forms--a helping hand, a willing heart. Children remind us that love is simple and beautiful. "And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." (1 Cor. 13:13, NKJV)

But now it looked like maybe that wouldn’t happen anymore. The little girl was sick. Her father had to get her to the hospital, a few miles away from their ger on the top of a hill, without a vehicle. He bundled both of them as tightly as possible in warm coats and carried Nomin out into the frigid Mongolian day. Tumurhkuu had to take his 4-year-old daughter down a long dirt road on the side of a mountain and through the city to reach the hospital. There was no other option.
