Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
Kathy and I just finished a week of “Camp Grammy and Grandpa”. 6 of our 12 grandchildren attended this year. We loved every minute of it, but were exhausted when the week ended. It got us thinking about those orphanages we support in India, Haiti and Honduras and especially those faithful adults that care for the children. They must experience times of complete exhaustion as they care for dozens, even hundreds of children full time. Would you take a moment to pray for Pastor Prabhu and his wife Sowjanya (India), Pastor Cenor and Merline (Haiti), Orsy and Banesa (Honduras) and all those that assist them? We accepted another 18 children this month in India. It is your faithful giving that makes it all possible. Again, we thank you VERY much for partnering with us.
Our team from Storden, MN treated our Haiti kids to a day at the beach.
Yes, that is the name of the beach.

CURRENT NEEDS, PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISES: 1. Last month several HIV infected street widows in India asked for help. They moved into one of our widows homes. Please pray for their health and that they will see Christ in the lives of those around them. 2. URGENT NEED: Funds needed to build an orphanage in India. We own the land, have dug a well and presently are buying the fill to level it for construction. We need to raise $280,000 to build a boys home and a girls home. 3. More orphans in India came asking for help. They are now in school and part of our growing family. Please pray for them as well as those caring for them as our homes are very crowded. 4. SPONSORS NEEDED: $50 per month will place one of our orphans into the home of a pastor in India. 100% goes to the pastor. Information is available at www.donshire.com. 5. Every month we need to pay for the expenses of all of our unsponsored orphans. It costs about $35 per month per child. Designate your gift to “India Orphans” and 100% will go to their support. 6. There is a mosquito spread virus in Haiti. Several of our staff and children continue to be infected. Please pray for their health and protection. 7. Praise the Lord with us for a very successful garage sale at the Judson Baptist Church in Joliet, IL. Over $22, 000 raised for our orphanage in Haiti! WOW!!!
