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.    ...

Rice for Pastors in India – June 2021

In June about 50 pastors in India were helped by providing each of them with a 22 lb. bag of rice.  The pastors have been struggling to support their families but because of the pandemic, they are not able to conduct regular church services and consequently, are not receiving tithes and wages.   Our many thanks to one anonymous individual in particular who was led to give towards this need.  Because of this one offering, prayers were answered and many people were blessed.   Distribution of the rice was done over the period of two days as most of the pastors ...

People Suffering From Hunger Are Helped – May & June 2021

During the months of May and June, 2021, this ministry has helped and is continuing to help to feed the poor in and around the area of Grace Prayer Church in India.   The pandemic is continuing and people are suffering, if not from Covid-19, then from hunger because of the lockdown.  Rev.

On May 21, Rev. Cornelius and volunteers visited a village that has been suffering from hunger during the Covid lockdown.   One bag weighing 22 lbs. was given to each family totaling 15 families.  We were sent these photos below.  With all the smiling faces we had to share them with you.   Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible.

Feeding the Hungry On A Street In India – May 2021

In May, 2021, Rev. Cornelius and volunteers took cooked rice to a street and fed the hungry.  Most of them were mothers with children and also widows who have no support.  As the pot of rice came close to being empty, several children clamored around the man begging for some food.  As you can see in the video, they were truly hungry.    Covenant Messenger Ministries is very blessed to be able to support Rev. Cornelius, his orphanage and many other projects such as wells for water, teaching women to sew, feeding the hungry, and most of all, evangelizing the ...

Smiling Faces

Although conditions for the poor in the streets are bleak, the children and widows of Grace Children's Home are blessed with food.   As you can see in many of the photos, the smiling faces reflect the joy of being able to wake up each morning knowing there will be food for the day.  Of course, there are days without food so those are days of fasting and praying for God's provision.   Thanks to you, there were smiles on their faces on this particular day in May!   God bless you for considering the poor, the orphans, the homeless, and the widows ...

Feeding the Hungry on the Streets of India

The youth of Pastor Cornelius's church in India recently went to the streets to pass out 250 packets of food to the poor.   Thousands are dying of covid.  Even if they could afford a doctor there are no beds available in the hospitals.   Many are unable to earn a wage because of a 20 hour lockdown so they go hungry.    It costs 50 Indian rupees, about 68 cents, for one packet of food that feed one person for a whole day.  Please consider giving something to help feed the poor in India.    Just $5 will feed 7 people.  ...

600 Eggs Distributed to the Poor.

Today, May 3, 2021, Rev. Cornelius blessed several children with protein in the form of eggs.  We take eggs for granted in America but to the poor in India, the Dalits, eggs are a blessing and a rarity.   Thanks to those who have a burden on their hearts for the poor, we were able to pass  enough money to Rev. Cornelius to purchase 600 eggs.  They were bagged six to a bag.  That is one egg per day for a week for each child.    Were they appreciated?  Just look at the smiles on their faces. Thanks to all who ...

April Blessings for Grace Children’s Home – India 2021

It is always a blessing to receive photos from Rev. Cornelius in India.   This time we received photos of the children of Grace Children's Home.   It was a great time for everyone including the children, the staff, and some widows who rely on the Home for food.   We were able to send a little extra support money to the home which permitted Rev. Cornelius to purchase soft drinks for the children.  You can see the smiles on their faces.   Rev. Cornelius has a great heart for the children and also for people in general. I am always impressed seeing the ...

Feeding Children of the Poor in India – 2021

In March of 2021 the director of Grace Children's Home and a few volunteers were able to visit villages outside of the orphanage and by the Grace of God they were able to give meals of rice and curry to hungry Dalit children.   This was a rare occasion because funds are mostly used to feed the children of the orphanage.   But there was a little extra this time so it was put to good use.   The kids in the video get a little excited and it's evident by the chatter.  Thank you for your giving to this ministry so we ...

Mountain Tribal Outreach In India – January 11, 2021

(A note from Val:  When all is said and done in this world only one thing that will stand for all of eternity is the answer to the question, "Do you know Jesus as Savior?".   Your voting preference will not matter, nor will the balance in your checkbook, the home you own, or the car you drive.  The number of friends you have will not matter and whether you have a close relationship with your pastor or priest will be lost in time.   The most important answer to the question asked above is, "Yes! I know Him!".   The report you ...
