Greetings! We hope and pray that you are all well. We take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Joyful New Year. May the Child Jesus bless you and yours with Love and Peace. We send loving wishes from your sponsored individuals and their families. Your generous support means a lot to them. Without your help we will not be able to reach out to many needy that deserve support. We are profoundly grateful to you for sharing your blessings with our needy. We are thinking of you and praying for you. We are delighted to send you the Christmas letter from your sponsored individual. We know that you love to receive it.
Our travels and mission appeals went well for the past six months. We arrived safely at Hyderabad, India on December 5th. We want to share with you that our works are going well. We are building an office at Hyderabad. The work is in progress and hope to complete it in six months. We want to thank all the sponsors who have contributed to the GIFT FUND and made it possible for all our sponsored individuals to receive Christmas gifts. We are truly thankful to you. If you have not sent your donation for the gift fund, you are welcome to do so even now. You may add this to your sponsorship check and note it on the memo line.

Our newest project is to help the children in an orphanage at Hyderabad whose parents have died due to Aids. These children are HIV positive and are in need of special care. Dr. Raja and Rani, a very dedicated couple, are taking care of these children. We would like to start a special sponsorship of $100 a month for these children. We are very much in need of your support. If you are able to assist us and sponsor a child at this level, please let us know. Or you can donate any amount for “Orphanage-Hyderabad”. Kindly share this information with potential sponsors.
