The following is an update from the Bryce Homes in India overseer, Pastor Wilson. Bryce Homes is an international missions program founded by Understand the Times (Roger Oakland’s ministry). There are currently Bryce Homes in several different countries. In each Bryce Home country, local pastors oversee the Bryce Homes (which are comprised of Christian widows and their children and foster parents and orphans). To learn more about the Bryce Homes program, visit UTT’s website. Lighthouse Trails readers have been financially and prayerfully supporting Bryce Homes since 2011.
Summer 2018 Update From Bryce Homes in India
Dear Pastor Tom and Brother Roger and all the supporters of Bryce Homes. Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ from all the children, foster parents and from me and my wife.
The following is a report from Guntar, India for the month of June, July and August.
“Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise you. Thus I will bless you while I live; I will lift up my hands in your name. Psalm 63:3-4.”
One: Praise to the Lord for His providence regarding all children’s education.
Two Pairs of Uniforms (each child 2000 Rs) = 24000-00
Each School bag worth (each child 600 Rs) = 7200- 00.
Text books, note books for one year (each child 7000- 00) = 84000-00
1st quarterly school fee (for each child 4500-00) = 54000-00.
Total amount is = 169200-00 Rupees.
We are able to do this with the help of Bryce Home supporters, the local church, foster parents and friends. It took us three months of time to raise the local funds for schooling. Thank God for His providence.
Two: God has blessed all the children with good health in hot summer weather. We were worried about their health as heat waves started but Lord blessed them with good health. Even though there are some health issues with children we continue medication and the sufficient grace of God is with all of us.
Three: We can witness the strong bond between the children and foster parents. This is very rare in this part of the world. Children are calling them Mummy and Daddy and the parents also are so much attached with children that I am grateful for God’s amazing work in the hearts of children and parents.
Fourth: Children are growing spiritually. They are attending regular church along with parents and attending Sunday school. Me and my wife are continually teaching and helping each child spiritually. They are memorizing scriptures and reading Bibles regularly. Click here to continue reading.
