Support-A-Child – Grace Children’s Home

Covenant Messenger Ministries is teaming up with Rev. Sikila Cornelius and his Grace Children's Home in India.  Although there are about 100 children in some of the group photos, there are approximately 38 of the children now living at the home and they are in need of sponsors to help feed and clothe them.   The other children come from various homes to take part in Bible study and to be fed in the afternoons. The Home has not had support for about two years and they are desperate for assistance to maintain the daily needs for the children living there.   We have been led of God to ask people to sponsor a child at the cost of $25/month, the average cost for providing food, clothing and hygienical items such as soap, toothpaste, etc.  If you would like to sponsor a child, click on the "Support-A-Child" Donate button below.  Or if you wish, you can let us know by emailing us at:  valblack.cmm@gmail.com.    ...

Three Widows Walk 5 Miles for Food

We just received word from Rev. Cornelius in India that three widows showed up at his door asking for food.  They heard that he was helping others and so they walked five miles and back for a little rice.   This is the reality of suffering brought on by Covid-19.   In normal time widows usually depend on their children, other family members and/or friends to survive.  Now that people are not able to work it is causing many hardships, especially widows and children.   James 1: 7, "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless ...

Feeding the Hungry in India – July 2020

The Covid-19 situation in India is not getting any better.   So many people are in lockdown and unable to work to provide for their families.  Pastors and their families are starving because church services are cancelled and no tithes or offerings are coming in, which is their only source of income.    This ministry supports Rev. Sikila Cornelius and his orphanage but the support we send to him also goes to help feed the needy.  We were blessed to learn that because of offerings we have received for India in July, Rev. Cornelius was not only able to feed the ...

Feeding The Hungry In India – June 17, 2020

The Covid-19 virus is spreading in India and especially in the area around Grace Children's Home.   Reverend Cornelius reports that conditions are getting worse by the day.  So many people are without food.  We were blessed recently to be able to send $150 to Rev. Cornelius to purchase food for the Children's Home and help others as much as possible.   Besides feeding the children at the home, Cornelius said there were funds left over so he was also able to give loaves of bread to 100 Dalit children.   Below are photos showing how blessed everyone was to receive food.  One widow ...

Feeding The Hungry In India

April 2, 2020 We are so blessed to have been able to help purchase food to feed the children of Grace Children's Home and the poor people of India, in particular the Dalits, or "untouchables".  An appeal for offerings was posted on Facebook and within a day or two enough offerings came in to enable us to wire money directly to Rev. Cornelius, a Dalit pastor.  (By the way, it took exactly 24 seconds for the money to travel from our bank to their bank in India and it cost us a little over $2 to send it.   If anyone ...

Orphanage Receives Christmas Gifts – Dec. 2019

Through gifts given to the orphanage, founder Rev. Sikila Cornelius was able to purchase Christmas gifts for each child.   The orphanage is home to 37 children who must be cared for with food, clothing and other necessities.   As Christmas comes around each year it is a real challenge for the orphanage to be able to provide gifts to the children.  This year was exceptional as enough offerings were received to not only feed and clothe the children but also buy gifts for each one.    See the smiling faces as each child received their gifts.    Please consider giving on ...

India Calling

In our support of men and women of God who daily work towards helping the poor and needy, who willingly share the Gospel and bring others into the Kingdom of Heaven, we are committed to helping as much as we are able, and we call for others who feel as we do, that laying up treasures in Heaven is thousands of times better than laying up material wealth on earth, to respond with prayer but financial help too. There are many needs, but specific ones were given to us, in particular, by Rev. Cornelius, founder of Grace Children’s Home in ...

Dalit Village Receives Bibles After 3 years & Orphans Are Fed

On November 17, 2019, this ministry was able to wire a special offering to Rev. Cornelius in India.   We told Rev. Cornelius to use the offering as he is led by the Holy Spirit.   For three years a remote village of Dalits have been waiting for someone to bring them Bibles so they can grow in the Lord.   Rev. Cornelius purchased Bibles and traveled to the village to deliver them to the people.  The villagers were very happy to receive them.  While there Rev. Cornelius also baptized some new converts. Then Rev. Cornelius bought rice and ingredients for curry (a ...
