Dear family and friends,
It’s been a fruitful month. Planning a lot for the cam, organizing several meetings for the mothers in FSP, communicating with the families, visiting the potential new families of FSP, helping the mothers decide which school is best for their child.

We will be having two big meeting for the mothers in FSP, it’s as the annual meet for the year. This is where we assess the performance of each child and mother in the program. Every year we evaluate the performance of the children in our program.
They are required to attain 60% above in their marks and 85% attendance. We also evaluate the savings account created by the mother or the guardian for the child. They are required to save 100 rupees a month in the savings account of the child. Based on all of the above factors a projected amount is decided as fees for the academic year 2019-2020. The Child and mother who has achieved these requirements will be rewarded during the meeting. We also go over the rules, the new p…

James 1:27


Dear Family and Friends,

February has been a very good month. I was able to visit these nineteen families for home verification visit and to get to know the situation/background they are coming from. We are still in the process of finalizing their intake, but to see the program grow, is just so awesome.   All these vulnerable families come from brokenness, poverty, loneliness, pushed away from the society, uneducated, carrying shame and guilt because of their husbands .

The Bible clearly says in James 1:27
"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world." It is always encouraging to go back to this verse and see how much God loves the orphans and the widows and to be able to work for them and help them is the best thing ever.

We were able to come up with a creative calendar for the families in our program, they are excited to see  many events and activities p…

His Faithfulness

Dear friends and Family,

It’s been really amazing to see Gods hands on the Family Support Program.The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Work at FSP has been hectic this past month, a lot of administration work, house visiting’s, sponsor letters, and more. We were able to arrange a small group session for the older girls in our program. It was time of speaking truth about their identity and self-esteem. Their identity in Christ, and what he thinks about them and feels for them. We are planning to have this once every month. Small activities are planned to make it interesting and exciting. The girls had a very good time in the session.

Background: Samyuktha and Nivetha are granddaughters of Sundari(grandmother) the girls lost their mother 9 years ago. She killed herself because of torture from her husband who is an alcoholic. He left and remarried and never returned.…

God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply.

Christmas is always a fun season, but it is also a season of extra work to bless people around us. This Christmas we were able to host a Christmas Carnival for 170 kids, most from the Fsp program and others from nearby children’s home. The carnival was held at Nandi hills which is about 1hr 30 min drive. The kids loved the drive, we had booked four big vehicles for transportation. There were about 17 different stalls, lots of games, snacks, bouncing castle, and more. Everyone at the carnival had a wonderful time both the people hosting and helping with it as well as the kids participating and enjoying their time. It’s always fun and a different experience to help people around and you see them blessed. We had many people generously giving towards the carnival,His provision was clearly seen in every aspect of that day.

BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING!!!!

Dear family and friends

I had the privilege of visiting all the houses in Fsp past two months. The visiting’s this time had a big impact on me. God was able to soften my heart in a very unique way. The vision behind Family support program was not only to help these families by educating the kids but it’s much more. It also focuses on the mother and her well-being.
This visit there were two particular family that needed extra help. Samyuktha and Nivetha are granddaughters of Sundari(grandmother) the girls lost their mother 9 years ago. She killed herself because of torture from her husband who is an alcoholic. He left and remarried and never returned. Their grandmother is really old and unable to continue working. They live in a one room house with a toilet, kitchen, bed all in the same stretch Grandmother Sundari had stroke twice this year, this has paralyzed half of her body which in return lead her to depression.  I was shocked to see her in this condit…
