It is hard to hold a charity, and still give in secret.. I would like to share the good news with the hands and feet that made it possible. This is exciting! and others can read of the joy that a little love can bring 🙂
I will start in India where Praveen and his family share their home with orphans. Through donations from June to September,the children now have umbrellas, and school supply’s that were also shared with other children in the community who are underprivileged. Living in America, I can see how much we can take for granted. The children were full of joy just to receive notebooks, pens and pencils for school. I am thankful for Amazon India, that enables me to send Chyawanprash Awaleha, and Amla to keep their immunity stronger during the cold and flu season. Praveen’s father is a diabetic, but did not have a blood glucose monitor. He can now test at home and work at better controlling his diabetes. Useful household products and treats have also arrived, it is not often that the children have biscuits, and they love them 🙂 Laundry powder and dish soap are usually in short supply, and they are grateful to receive it. With many mouths to feed, and learning that there was no area for a garden, I was able to send a Green My Life bag kit, this allows you to grow fruits and vegetables on your patio!
We can only hope there is a green thumb in the family! Praveen will also be able to schedule another dinner with the widows and orphans after church, this brings them great joy as they love to share a meal with others who are in need. You can see love in action at Their Sunday Best. To all who gave from their heart, Praveen and the family are truly grateful.
Pastor Yatham of India received Bibles to give during the street outreach, and has also been provided a rechargeable headset that was needed to replace his broken mobile microphone system. Funds for street missions are needed, as Bibles are asked for by many. If you would like to know more about Pastor Yatham, you can meet him here: India Outreach
Now on to Africa! As you may know, Andy from Uganda has been trying to find work and has no secondary education. He has been homeless since the age of 14, and offers to help others in exchange for a place to stay..Old fashioned barter and trade at its best! Through hands that gave, Andy is now in mechanics training. A man agreed to teach him for 50 dollars, which is far less than a college would charge. Andy was also able to buy second-hand tools that were needed. Learning a trade once seemed so far out of reach. Andy in training.
Wasike of Uganda, who provides a home for several orphans has also received a helping hand. The children are in need of food and school books that are difficult to purchase on a janitors salary. The charity at You Caring, for Wasike, also received a 50 dollar donation! and this is to aid the building fund at Love Can Build A Home .
Betty Florence is back from the mission field in Sierra Leone, and planning a soon return. Any donations I receive are sent directly to the Betty Florence Foundation where she puts every cent to good use. This year Betty and her team dug another well,and provided for the school bringing free education to needy children. They also conducted other outreach projects in the village. Missionaries are not amply funded, so we can see what the Lord has done in Fakonoh Village!
Sharing all this good news would not be possible without the Lord moving the hands and feet that made it possible. I give thanks to God, and to those who gave, prayed, and share the charity with others.
