“About two and a half years ago I was in a very dark place, but by God's grace Don Shire reached out to me to show the love of Christ. I stayed at his orphanage in Haiti for a couple of months where I finally cracked open my Bible. It was by reading in Romans that I finally understood the vastness of my sin, and at the same time the infinite depth of Jesus' forgiveness! I attended Nicolet Bible Institute for a year where God set a fire in my heart for the lost, and towards the end of that year, I received the call from God to be a missionary. It was through short term service where He grabbed a hold of me, and now I have the beautiful opportunity to witness our Father work the same miracle on countless others! I am looking forward to serving with YOU! Where is God calling you to serve? Jer. 4:1-8 “Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak for I am only a youth. ”But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the Lord.”
Pastor Prabhu, the pastor that oversees our India ministry, recently visited us here in the United States. We had a great time thanking God for the blessings of the past as well as planning for the future. One immediate need he presented is a roof over our present orphanage. He said our current roof leaks terribly and the children cannot stay dry when it rains. A new one will cost $6,000. As God leads, will you help us provide a dry covering for the children? There are 90 children sleeping on the floor. When the floor is wet, they are wet too. Thank you very much! PS: If any extra is raised it will go into the fund building the new orphanage.
