Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
INDIA REPORT: One night I decided to do a surprise visit to one of our orphanages. It was 9:30PM and the children were supposed to be asleep. As I opened the door I saw about 75 children dive for their mat on the floor to pretend they were sleeping. They didn’t flinch as I walked in and took pictures. As I left I said “Good night, I love you!”. There was an excited and immediate response of “Good night!” from the kids. It was priceless! We prayed and then they went to sleep for real.
We visited homes of some of our sponsored children. The program seems to be working very well! On a sad note, we visited with 18 homeless widows, some of whom have HIV asking us to help them.We agreed to try. Please pray for us as we try to find a place for them to live and raise the finances to care for them. Because of your generous giving, our children and widows in India will all receive a new blanket for Christmas and will celebrate with a church service and Christmas party.
Once again, we thank you for partnering with us. Your year end gifts are appreciated very much! As you can imagine, the needs are great in caring for 423 people. Thank you so much! And thank you to the many that send regular monthly support. Without you none of this happens. We are blessed to have you as part of our team!
Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!
