CHILDREN PRAYING FOR OUR
|Beautiful young women from Agape - our prayer warriors.|
Ruby is ministering in Bihar, India at this time and Lynn is in Tokmok, Kyrgyzstan.
Bihar is the poorest state in India and the statistics are sobering. 80% of the people live in extreme poverty - with over 50% of the children being being malnurished.
There is little to no innoculations, poor health conditions, unsafe water, high infant mortality rate and extreme trafficking concerns.
In fact, girl children are under valued and often discarded in a number of different ways - child brides, abandonment and trafficked out. Bihar is one of the most trafficked places in South Asia.
And as we work with the leadership here - discussing and strategizing for the care of orphans in India - specifically Bihar we have been blessed so much by the team here - these young girls from Agape Ministry who are the prayer team for the work. THEY ARE OUR PRAYER WARRIORS! Now, think about this - how many churches can you name that call together the children to be the prayer warriors? These children prayed before we came together - praying for our travel - now praying all day for the work being done to care for the orphans of Bihar.
With a country with so many need - we can learn much! CHILDREN ARE THE CHURCH.
|With stories and great witness to the impact of Christ in their lives.|
What joy - unspeakable joy!
IN KYRGYZSTAN - NEWS FOR JEREMIAH HOUSE
TODAY THEY GOT A VAN!
We received a wonderful Christmas donation to bless JH with this van and some other special renovations - windows and sewing items.
This delivery is major - as they have been walking and never able to go together anywhere.
Today this changed.
THANK YOU DONOR - WE ARE BLESSED!
I think they look good in the van! Agree?
Finally, please pray for Ira - she is living in the college - studying to become a teacher. She was with us at JH for almost a year and we are ensuring her education, etc.
She has a part-time job. She requested two days off work to study for her exams and was granted this - when she returned to work they had hired someone else and told her that she was no longer needed. This is devastating for her. She has really had it hard for so many years. This job and the move to the college was a step into adulthood. Once again she is dependent on us for her needs (we are okay with helping her) and she has been pushed back again to this. We want to encourage her so please pray for her - that she does not see this as failure, but as a process for becoming stronger for the journey ahead.
Thank you so much.
