The faces of the Midway, even the carnival workers at the Tulsa State Fair all have a story.
They share their lives with more than five dozen Tulsa State Fair Chaplains who work from sunrise until the fair shuts down.
However, there is one particular story Chaplain Walker Moore says is special to him.
Fairgoers pay a dollar to see the World’s Smallest Women.
"A lot of people don't understand they think it's exploitation but they don't know the real lady,” says the woman’s cousin Arius Olbrice.
The woman may only be 29 inches tall but 34-year-old Lina has a strong heart.
Behind the wall you learn she and her cousin are from Haiti.
They work year-around to pay for her orphanage to care for the 300 children in her native country.
"She is the only breadwinner for this family and she is the only working for the family,” says Olbrice.
Lina speaks little English so her cousin translates for fairgoers.
"He's my friend, he's my brother. He helps so many, I try to help him,” says Chaplain Moore.
The Chaplain has been praying and offering encouragement on the Midway for 23 years.
"We want a lot more people to come to help a lot more children,” says Chaplain Moore.
Lina’s cousin says they are working through winter and won’t get home to Haiti until April.
"Hopefully we get more money and help more people,” says Olbrice.
This will be the first year for a church service at the Tulsa State Fair.
Service for all the workers will be held after the fair closes on Thursday.
