An Orphan’s Christmas: The Story of George and Mary Muller

LENGTH: 45 minutes (Performed since 2011)

A Christian drama for the Christmas Season!

The story of George and Mary Muller reminds us that we are God’s hands and heart, especially to those struggling financially. What would our world be like if we did not care for others in need? Caring for each other is at the very heart of who God is. The Christmas season is a wonderful opportunity to remind people of this.

My drama, An Orphan’s Christmas, will remind audiences that God will care for our needs if we will care for the needs of others. In the 1800′s orphans posed a real problem on the streets of Bristol and throughout England, for that matter. With no one to care for them their only options for survival were the workhouses, factories or the streets where they begged, stole or worse. At the same time many Christians were struggling with their trust in a God who provides. Poverty was something many feared.

A German pastor, George Muller and his English wife, Mary, felt directed by God to start an orphan house. It was unusual for its time for it was both free and sustained solely by prayer and trust in God. They felt that God wanted to use the orphan house to encourage their church to trust God for their every need and the needs of others. The results went far beyond even George Muller’s expectations.

An Orphan’s Christmas is a drama that tells this remarkable story from the perspective of a former street orphan, Cady Murphy, who now works in one of the five Muller orphan homes (housing 300 orphans each!). It’s Christmas Day and there is not enough food in the pantry or money for Christmas dinner, but Cady Murphy isn’t worried, over the past forty years she has learned from the Muller’s how to trust God for the impossible.

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:7&8 "Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life." 1 Timothy 6:18&19 "And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well." Luke 12:20-31
