Blessing HIV Children in India
Our friend Mavis spent recently three months in India. She worked with two wonderful Indian Missions. Ark Family Ministries and Adopt A Village. If you wish to learn more, and hopefully support them, just click on the link. Below is a letter from Mavis on her return home.
HI FAMILY AND FRIENDS, BY THE GRACE OF GOD I REACHED HOME SAFELY ON THE 5TH OF APRIL. IT IS A GREAT FEELING TO BE HOME WITH FAMILY, ESPECIALLY WITH MY THREE LOVING GRAND CHILDREN. MY 4 YEAR OLD GRAND DAUGHTER, LEAH, ASKED ME, "YOU ARE NOT GOING BACK TO INDIA?" I SAID, "NO", SHE SAID, "THANK GOD, WELCOME BACK AMMAMA". SHE IS SO CUTE. I STAYED IN INDIA IN THE WARM WEATHER FOR 3 MONTHS & I DID NOT MISS THE SNOW AT ALL. I ENJOYED VISITING MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS. I ALSO ENJOYED VISITING ASHIRVAD HOME WHICH HAS 39 CHILDREN-MOST OF THEM ARE HIV POSITIVE CHILDREN,(PL.READ BELOW NO. 8). GOD GAVE ME THIS MINISTRY AND I AM HAPPY TO SERVE HIM. I HAVE TAKEN UP ANOTHER MINISTRY CALLED ADOPT A VILLAGE-THERE ARE SMALL VILLAGES THAT DO NOT HAVE TV CONTACT SO THEY CAN LISTEN TO GOSPEL MESSAGES. THEY ARE SO POOR AND CAN NOT AFFORD TO GET THE TV CONNECTION. I CAN NOT GO AND PREACH TO THEM , BUT WITH LITTLE EXPENSE I CAN SEND GOD'S WORD TO THEM WITHOUT ME GOING OUT. IF ANY ONE IS INTERESTED IN THESE TWO MINISTRIES AND WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT IT PL EASE LET ME KNOW I WILL BE VERY HAPPY TO TALK ABOUT IT. GOD BLESS YOU ALL . VERY HAPPY TO BE HOME . I HAD VERY GOOD VACATION. MAVIS
