So this past week we've been doing several different things. We were able to wrap things up at an orphanage that we've been working with for a week. At the orphanage we were able to give gifts to the girls and boys through someone who generously donated $100 to Cori. We also went to an Indian wedding were we blessed the couple with a song, went to a slum church to share and minister to the people. We also went to a village out in the countryside where we spoke at a youth meeting and ministered to widows.
Re-dedication for full time ministry: 5
Prayed for: 149
It's been an amazing time being able to reach out to several different communities. When we ministered to the widows, one of the youngest widows who has 4 children actually makes money by selling jewelry. So to sow into her life and help support her our team bought some jewelry from her to help her business. Even though it may have been a small gesture on our part, I know that she greatly appreciated it.
After we ministered to the widows, Jaipaul's ministry through Rescue Lives gave 30 sewing machines to the widows so that they could become self-sufficient. Widows in India are usually forgotten and left on their own, so they must try to find any means to make a living. Through our time with the widows we're seeing not only a community being transformed but also the Lord's compassion for the poor and needy being met.
Keep praying for us. We'll be leaving for Aruku Valley soon for a week and then going to a remote destination. Thank you for your prayers and support.
