One of the ministries in the area is a sewing factory to provide employment for people in the area. When Lois, Jeevan and Shakaina provided Indian snacks after the service on Sunday, they suggested donations at the snack time could be made towards t-shirts sewn by the factory for Kids Ministry volunteers. We raised $333 dollars towards the project!!
Thanks to your generosity, Lois' goal of raising $5,000 has been met. In addition, an extra $1,000 has been donated. When Lois spoke to people she is coordinating with in the area, they suggested the "over the top" money may be used in the following ways:
They are the lowest cast in India -- poor, oppressed, with little hope for the future without God. BUT God has an amazing plan for their lives. I (Lois) have seen examples of it.
It is where we spot God at work. In one small corner of India I have spotted God working in amazing ways among the Dalits. In fact, it is a hotspot for God at work.
I (Lois) have deep roots in India. My grandparents were missionaries there and my Dad was born there. BUT I have never been there until now. I am going to India in December to participate in this Godspot by teaching 200 Sunday School teachers and speaking at a girls' camp of 80 teens. I’m so excited to be a small part of this ministry.
