Our Children’s Home in India and director Rev. Himmat Mohod have both reached the 50 mark. Early this month we called to wish him a happy 50th birthday and coincidentally, the enrollment in the home has also reached 50; we’re so excited! Here’s how we’re helping more orphans with hope and help:
In May’s issue of The Liaison, I wrote that 13 additional children, most of whom are orphans, were coming to the Home, then in late June Dr. Cook was asked to take in 10 more orphaned and needy girls from a nearby sister ministry that sadly has closed its doors due to lack of financial resources. Our team in India and here in the Colorado Springs office prayerfully felt we couldn’t turn the girls away and now with everyone back for school, there is a much busier campus: we’ve gone from 27 to 50 children! We’re trusting the Lord to bring in resources needed to care for these children, first for sponsors for the new children ($35/month) and then for the additional housekeeping items needed.
Bunkbeds(15): $120.00 ea.
Mattress (15): $26.00 ea.
Bedding (15): $4.00 ea.
Blankets (20): $5.50 ea.
Towels (20): $1.50 ea.
Dishes (20): $4.50 ea.
Tables (8): $31.00 ea.
Battery & Inverter (1): $272
The total need is $3,000, or, about $130 to get each new child “set up,” which 10 people partnering at $300 each would meet. Gifts of all amounts are appreciated and will be used to ensure each child is well cared for.
