Speaking Out About These Immoral Times

There are times when I feel the need to speak out about the path this nation has followed for several years and what God has placed on my heart.  This is one of those times.  Whether you agree or disagree is not my concern.  I feel compelled to say it and let the chips fall where they may.  So, with that said, here goes . . . . . This nation is in serious trouble internally and the majority of the population is only concerned over the price of gas and the increasing inflation, and rightly so. But there are ...

Christian Pastor Is Beaten For Preaching the Gospel

Just today we received a short video from India of a Christian pastor who was pulled out of his church yesterday and beaten for preaching the Gospel.  In India, where the national and local governments are dominated by Hindus, this is not uncommon.   If such an incident was to be reported to the authorities it would be of no use and might even provoke greater anger, which would result in a worse outcome.   Pastor Cornelius explains that is the reason they plea for assistance from outside of India.  Practically no support exists from within, either financially or spiritually.  So, please ...

The Priest Who Found Christ

A note from Val:  To my Catholic friends,  I was born and raised in the Catholic Church, and many times in my youth I prayed to Mary, St. Christopher, St. Anthony, St. Philomena, and others, but I was never taught to go directly to Jesus in prayer.  Looking back, I remember nuns who came to church to teach catechism.  There was one nun in particular who was so sweet and pure in her mannerisms that I, at the age of about 10, found myself falling in love with her.  She would talk about heaven as if she was a frequent visitor ...

Important Gifts For The Orphans – November 2022

Here in the U.S., we take so much for granted.  For instance, when was the last time you went without a toothbrush and/or toothpaste?  How about soap?  For many in India, these items are not taken for granted.  In fact, you could say they are considered to be items of luxury, available only to the "rich".  Thanks to many of you, this ministry is able to continue to feed the orphans and pay the staff but sometimes God provides a little extra, and we are able to give more to the orphanage.  That happened recently.  We received a little above ...

It has been a while since we posted news from India so here is the latest:  August 2022 - The Lord blessed Grace Children's Home in India with mosquito nets through this ministry.  This time of year, mosquitoes are very thick, so mosquito nets will make sleeping at night more comfortable.  Using the nets will also help prevent the kids from contracting malaria, a disease spread by mosquitoes.  Rev.
