In India Mark Anderson Ministries is very successfully reaching out to orphans and destitute girls by showing them the love of Jesus.
Karishma Sewing School runs 2 1/2 sessions each year. Each session has about 22 girls 15 years and older. Learning to sew has really helped the girls to earn a living without leaving their homes. The tailoring shops of the area know about the sewing school and regularly provide the girls with work. Since we began the sewing school about 1,200 girls have passed through it.
The Sewing School has only Hindu girls, but sharing the love of Jesus with them through this outreach has helped us build a very good relation with them and their parents. Often they share their problems with us and we pray for them and teach them to pray for themselves as well.
We have regular Bible studies with them. They love to sing and are part of the church choir. The older girls are being taught to cook and help out in the kitchen.
Once they graduate if a relative wants to take them home they are free to go. The orphans and those who stay back will go through college education and then Mark Anderson Ministries will find a way to settle them in life. THANK YOU FOR MAKING ALL THIS POSSIBLE!!!
