That was a good and kind thing to do, but Amy was embarrassed because her friends saw her with such a poor, shabby, dirty person. Then Amy remembered her friend Jesus and how he loved poor, shabby and dirty people as much as he loved her. So Amy decided to help poor, shabby and dirty people, and tell them all about her friend Jesus. First Amy helped poor people near her home in Belfast in Northern Ireland. Then she helped poor people in Manchester in England. Then She decided to help poor people in other countries and tell them about her friend Jesus. She travelled to Japan and then to India. in India Amy cared for the poorest of the poor and the shabblest of the shabby - little girls whose parents were so poor they gave their daughters to Hindu temples.

When Amy became too iIl to work, she wrote books and songs and poems to help even more people trust her friend Jesus.
