The blessing of being able to provide for new children in need.
Sagar Jalli provides this update with photos from Hebron.
We are pleased and give thanks that a donor from the USA has made a substantial donation to Hebron to enable the hiring of 3 Government-required employees so that the girls dorm at Hebron can remain open at the orphanage without all the girls being removed and the dorms shut down. This is the matron at the girls dorm supervising recess and games in the courtyard at Hebron.
These four girls were rescued by the government while begging on the streets. They were sent to Hebron last week. Sagar is pleased that in this case the government recognized that Hebron is the best facility for taking care of the orphan children in India.
This boy, P. Caleb. was rescued two weeks ago while begging on the streets. His father abandoned him and his Mother died on the streets. Hebron brings smiles to kids who normally would never have a reason to smile.
For the first time in the 47 year history of the orphanage, an abandoned child with dwarfism now calls Hebron home. Sagar says “I felt very sad when this boy asked me to pray for the unification of the parents who left him and gone in their own ways. I prayed. Of course we both prayed.”
As always happens at Hebron, the new children soon find the happiness, joy and love of caretakers and fellow orphans who gleefully spend their playtime playing various games, especially the State-sport of kabadi – which is similar to ‘tag’ and ‘steal the bacon’.
Update from Sagar Jalli – Director of Hebron:
We are glad to tell you that the government has approved our appointments of a watchman and two lady wardens for the girls.
We pay our heartfelt thanks to the brother helped in this need for one year.
I hope your trip to the churches is successful. May our dear Heavenly Father will bless all your efforts to help the Hebron home for His glory. We hope that we will get regular support for the needs at Hebron Home.
We are all praying for you all dear brethren.
May our Lord will bless you abundantly.
Your brother in Christ,
Sagar and all at Hebron.
It is a joy to see the kids enjoy USA apples, a fruit that is not indigenous to India. A special treat for them.
