Thanks so much for keeping us in your prayers during our outreach to India a few weeks ago. The trip was amazing (even though a bit tough at the same time), and I (Anna) am happy to share a few highlights with you!
Marilyn Molitor and Stephanie Houde came with me on this outreach, and they wrote a little to share about their experience! (See attached letters from Marilyn and Stephanie.)
Awesome Outreach to India!
It was so nice to spend some good time with the children at Aasha “Hope” Children’s Home. I love these kids so much and I am thankful that we are able to care for them. GPI is now caring for 36 orphans!
The highlight of the trip for me was taking the children to a water park, which is not common in India unless someone is very wealthy. The owner of the water park was a believer, and he shut down the park to the public so we could have the whole place to ourselves. It was so much fun! The kids had a blast!
The children are also learning to play instruments and are leading worship at GPI’s outreaches! We have been caring for many of these kids for over 6 years now, and it is awesome to see them growing up and serving the Lord. Every morning the kids have a time of worship, which was really special to see.
Our women’s conference was also a great success, hundreds of ladies came and were encouraged! We also had many opportunities to share in churches!
There were some challenges on this outreach (as there always are it seems). We caught some sort of cold or flu bug and were feeling pretty bad towards the end, and of course it was tough being away from our families. But God helped us get through this and have a great outreach regardless.
Thanks so much for keeping us in your prayers and for sending us to India. Together, we are making a big difference in many people’s lives!
Anna (& Josh) and the GPI team
