It has long been on our hearts to start an orphanage in Manipur (NE India), and this year we were able to build and move into a good location. At this time there are approximately 20 orphans being cared for, but every day more and more people hear about us and bring orphans/abandoned children from their villages for us to raise.
We have a very loving family who is running the orphanage, loving the children, and bringing them up in the ways of the Lord! So even though there are many heart-breaking stories among the children, they are growing up in a loving, joyful environment.
We do have some prayer needs, and would truly appreciate your prayers for us:
- As we said there are more children arriving daily and we need more room and more beds and blankets (it’s cold in the NE).
- We need to build a kitchen/eating area as everything is done outside at the moment. Also needed are chairs, tables, utensils, etc.
- We need funds for the school fees and supplies, so we can send the children to school.
- Our water situation is limited and we need a solution to that, as well as a water filter.
