A huge shout-out and thanks to a couple of businessmen and Art for Orphans fundraiser (Rena Trail) for raising the entire amount and more to pay for completion of construction of the second floor and purchasing furnishings and transportation. This has come at the most crucial time as we now have 18 girls and the ground floor is over crowded. Construction is commencing in the beginning of December and if all goes according to schedule, should be completed by the end of February.
Recently a missionary visited the Girl’s home and commented that the children were very emotionally stable and confident. She has visited orphanages in other countries and noticed that the children were not so emotionally stable. Hat’s off to our workers, Robin and Shobha the house parents and Dr. Hanook Massey who have loved these children with such a passion that they are so well adjusted. Most of them are children of persecuted Christians and have witnessed great brutality. When the first came to the home 1 1/2 years ago they were full of fear, very quiet and suppressed.
The girls are doing well in school and have picked up in health. I visited them on our trip in November and was blessed to see them laughing, giggling and communicating with me in English and Hindi.
Thanks to all you who keep this outreach running with your monthly donations. Great is your reward for caring for the “Forsaken but not Abandoned”.
