Hi Family & Friends,
It’s just about summer time! The thing we love most about this time of year is making memories with our kids and helping them discover the beautiful world that God created. Those warm summer evenings just have a way of slowing time down and making you think about the things that matter most…God, Family, and reaching the Lost! Thank you for joining with us to help spread the Gospel around the world!
One of our favorite things to do every year is sit down with the kids at Aasha Children’s Home in India and ask them what they want to be when they grow up. It is so great to hear them share their ambitions and dreams in their own words, and to see the light in their eyes as they dream about their future. Many of these kids have gone through horrible things and we can’t help but feel inspired by their individual stories of triumph. We’re so thankful to have an opportunity to help give these kids a home and the tools they need to go make their dreams a reality. This month we are wanting to focus on sponsoring a college education for some of our “kids” in India. In this part of India one student can attend a full year of college for $300-$500. We have 14 kids starting or continuing their studies and we are needing a total $5,400 for college tuition for the year. Please let us know if you want to help with this need!
We starting caring for 10 kids in India a little over 7 years ago, and as time has gone by the kids have continued to grow up. It’s hard not to tear up when we think about how little time we actually have left with these kids but we know God has big plans and trust that He guides, directs and makes way we couldn’t even dream of. Just this last month we had one of the older girls at Aasha “Hope” Children’s Home (her name is Renuka) get married to an awesome guy from a neighboring village. This is the second orphan from our children’s home who has gotten married, and it’s so exciting to see Renuka launch out and begin a new chapter in her story. We are so happy for Renuka and the life she is starting with this Godly young man and we can’t wait to see how God uses this amazing couple.
Thank you for all your prayers, support and encouragement. It’s a team effort and together with your help we are spreading the Gospel and helping people in need. Hope you have a great month, God bless!
